Journey of Water is a delightful walking path to cool off while walking to your next attraction in World Nature.
In keeping with EPCOT's original spirit, Journey of Water shows the different stages of the Earth's water cycle, from clouds and rain to rivers and oceans. Each stage of the water cycle is explained through large displays that you can play with.
For example, the "rain" part of the cycle includes a "water harp" - small strings of running water that play different musical notes when you run your hands though them. Other features include water spouts, "jumping" water fountains, river run-offs, and misters to keep you cool.
The middle of the exhibit includes restrooms, allowing you to change small kids into bathing suits for the wettest parts that come later. And there's only one way in and one way out, making it easier to keep track of kids.
Along with the play features and strong narrative, Journey of Water does a couple of other things really well. First, the misters and water splashes serve to cool you off quite a bit. We think Journey of Water represents one of Disney's first attempts to address how to manage future climate change so that guests will still want to come to Central Florida 20 or 30 years from now.
Also, Journey of Water has some of the best spots for photos anywhere in EPCOT. At various points in the attraction, you'll have gorgeous backgrounds of Spaceship Earth, the EPCOT monorail, or lush, green landscaping. Whoever designed Journey of Water's layout to hit these highlights, did fantastic work.
Journey of Water's capacity is around 150 people at a time. That's not a lot of people when you consider EPCOT's average attendance is around 30,000 people per day. Expect a short wait to enter, especially during the hottest parts of the year.
Disney may use a virtual queue for this attraction, especially during peak periods.
If there's a wait to enter, try coming back in the afternoon. Many guests will have moved on to World Showcase by then, leaving World Nature relatively uncrowded.
