That Epcot is a park with different attractions we already know, right?! Even in one of them, at Living with the Land, where you can discover a greenhouse with plants.
In short, the philosophy of this Disney park is to celebrate the world's diversity and technology.
Therefore, in this attraction, you will understand more about different plant species and how agriculture can be technological.
In addition, there is also fish and shellfish farming in Living with the Land. Thus, you will notice that technology is also, and will be increasingly, present in our food.
Living with the Land Features
The giant greenhouse is located in World Nature (formerly Future World), in front of the Soarin. The attraction consists of a “boat” tour, but don't worry, it's not extreme and there's no danger of getting wet.
Living with the Land's main motivation is to show how technology influences agriculture.
There, there are several species of plants, foods and even some animals.
The tour lasts about 15 minutes and after that you can still walk through an area of plants. For those who love nature, without a doubt it is an incredible tour.
Also, my tip is that you go once a day and once at night.
While in the first one you can observe the species, in the second the light play is amazing.
During the entire route, you will see trees, bushes, flowers, etc. In addition, there are also areas that resemble laboratories. In each of them, a type of species is cultivated:
- Tropics Greenhouse: in this area, we can see tropical fruits such as banana, cocoa, jackfruit and pineapple;
- Aquacell: As I said, there are also animals in this attraction and they live here. Some species can be observed, such as tilapia, shrimp and catfish;
- Temperate Greenhouse: here, there are species of plants and fruits from temperate climates, such as sunflowers, beets, turnips and cotton;
- String Greenhouse: in this area, you can learn about different cultivation techniques, such as vertical. Also, there are pumpkins and cucumbers shaped like Mickey's face, which is really interesting;
- Creative Greenhouse: Finally, the philosophy of this greenhouse is the same as its name – creativity. Therefore, the way of cultivation is differentiated, including with NASA technology. There are tomatoes, lettuce, squash, and basil that are air- and hydroponic-grown.
How is the Living with the Land queue?
The lines of this attraction are medium and usually vary with the season. That is, you may find yourself with a few minutes or even an hour of waiting.
However, it is a worthwhile tour, as we can see the importance of technology in agriculture.
In addition, Living with the Land accepts FastPass +, which can be very interesting.
How is Living with the Land's journey?
The tour is very calm and the intention is to observe and contemplate the different species and their ways of cultivation.
In addition, the greenhouse is huge and, for this reason, it takes almost 15 minutes inside the “boat”.
It may seem like a crazy attraction, and in fact it may be if you don't enjoy this type of tour. But for people who like hours, sustainable things and families, it can be a really cool attraction.
It is worth mentioning, for very hot days, just a place to rest your legs with a pleasant temperature can be a good idea too!
In some specific areas, you can hear the narration about the plants present there. In addition, each of them carries a small plaque with popular and scientific names.
Without a doubt, it's a ride which is worth it, as it includes a lot of knowledge in just one place.
Can you see Living with the Land's floor plans up close?
Yes, it is possible.
There is a tour called Behind the Seeds. This tour is paid separately and we recommend that it be booked directly at disney website.
I had the pleasure of taking this tour during Disney's Invited Magic Influencers program. It really is amazing.
In it, you go through the parts where Living with the Land passes, but you walk, seeing some plants, some you are invited to play and some fruits and vegetables you can even eat straight from the foot.
Like Living with the Land, it is an extremely educational and cool tour for those who like the subject.
If you want to see how Behind the Seeds works and consequently various parts of Living with the Land (you can see the boats passing by), follow our video on youtube.

Get your Parks Tickets at a Discount
Many people leave to buy their tickets arriving in Orlando or even on the day of the park.
We do not in any way recommend that you do this for a variety of reasons, such as:
If you buy tickets on the spot, you won't be able to book your park days in advance at the risk of not even being able to enter a park on a given day.
You will lose valuable park minutes in line to buy your tickets.
AND MAINLY, you will pay more because tickets at the box office are more expensive than buying in advance!
