Walt Disney World – Epcot – The Land

On our trip to Walt Disney World two years ago I think I was most excited to explore Epcot, and it did not disappoint me. One of my favorite parts of this park was The Land. It was educational, encouraging, positive and beautiful all at the same time. My only regret is that I didn’t get to go on this ride more than once. It makes me laugh that now two years later my daughter is studying aquaculture, something I never even heard of until our trip to Epcot. Below is the description of the ride, Living with the Land, a boat ride, from the WDW website…

Living with the Land is a 14-minute boat ride in Future World at Epcot theme park that explores agricultural advances in the rain forest, Africa and beyond.

Set sail on a voyage of discovery through living laboratories as you cruise past the American plains, a tropical rain forest and the African desert to witness the latest developments in aquaculture and desert farming. Float by experimental greenhouses—where produce is grown for Epcot restaurants—and take a fascinating first-hand look at an aqua environment, the Aquacell, with alligators and fish. The greenhouses grow crops native to many cultures, including rice, sugar cane and bananas.

This thought-provoking ride will leave you amazed at the wondrous ways scientists are helping farmers prepare for the food needs of our world’s nations.

If you make your way to Epcot please check out this exhibit and don’t pass it by because you think it might be boring, it really is nice.

  1. I had no idea that there were such interesting and educational things at Disneyland. The DNA topiary will be gorgeous when it grows in.

    I went to Epcot the year it opened and found that I enjoyed it almost more than Disney – especially the ride about plants and agriculture. I think I need to get back down there and see it again.

    Thank you for reminding me of this…..its been a few years since I was last at Disney World and I too was fasinated by “The Land”. Of course at that stage in my life I was still into gardening…..hard to garden in an RV. Nice post!
