The Living with the Land attraction is a slow moving boat ride that entertains guests while it educates them. The ride that is located in the Land Pavilion at Epcot lasts 14 minutes. Guests begin their boat ride by traveling through various ecosystems that demonstrate how land can be used.
As the boats exit the dark portion of the ride, guests glide into the greenhouses. In the greenhouses guests are educated on how the future of growing plants. Hydroponic plants hang from the ceilings as the tour guides explain the growing process. Hidden Mickeys keep kids entertained as they try to find the next one. There is also an aquaculture area with American alligators, tilapia and bass.
Many of the fish, fruits and vegetables grown on the Living with the Land ride are served in the Garden Grill restaurant that slowly rotates overhead of the ride below. Guests are enamored with the pumpkins that grow into the clear Mickey head forms to create Mickey pumpkins.
This educational ride provides guests with an indoor relaxing experience that provides a great break to a fast passed theme park. Children enjoy the constantly changing scenery as they try to guess what else might be growing as it hangs from the ceiling and grows without soil.
Wichitans traveling to Epcot this spring for the Flower and Garden Festival will enjoy this relaxing indoor break from their busy day at Epcot.
