World Nature at Epcot (The Land, The Seas, Journey of Water)

World Nature at Epcot (The Land, The Seas, Journey of Water)

When visiting Epcot, you’ll see that the park is split up into different sections.

There is, of course, the World Showcase where you can visit 11 different countries. But, the old Future World has been transformed into 3 new neighborhoods called: World Celebration, World Discovery, and World Nature.

Each of these neighborhoods have their own special pavilions, attractions, entertainment, dining, characters, activities, and so much more.

World Nature is described as “dedicated to understanding and preserving the beauty, awe, and balance of the natural world.”

This neighborhood contains 2 major pavilions, The Land and The Seas, plus a brand new attraction inspired by Moana.

Let’s take a deep dive into the neighborhood pavilion and see everything you can experience.
