That Epcot is a park with different attractions we already know, right?! Including, in one of them, at Living with the Land, where you can visit a plant greenhouse.
On this post
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 species of plants and how agriculture can be technological.
In addition, there is also a fish and crustacean farm in Living with the Land. Therefore, you will realize that technology is also, and will be increasingly, present in our food.
Features of Living with the Land
The giant greenhouse is located in World Nature (formerly Future World), in front of the Soarin. The attraction consists of a "boat" ride, 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 afterwards you can walk through an area of plants. For those who like 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 one the light play is incredible.
Throughout the journey, you can 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 will be able to observe tropical fruits, such as bananas, 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 sunflower, beet, turnip and cotton;
- String Greenhouse: in this area, you can learn about different cultivation techniques, such as vertical cultivation. In addition, there are also pumpkins and cucumbers in the shape of Mickey's face, which is quite interesting;
- Creative Greenhouse: finally, is the philosophy of this greenhouse the same as its name? creativity. Therefore, the form of cultivation is differentiated, including with NASA technology. There are aero and hydroponic grown tomatoes, lettuce, squash and basil.
How is the Living with the Land queue?
Queues for this attraction are medium and tend to vary with the season. That is, you may be faced with a few minutes or even an hour of waiting.
However, it is a worthwhile trip, as we can see the importance of technology in agriculture.
In addition, Living with the Land accepts FastPass +, which can be very interesting.
What is the Living with the Land route like?
The tour is very calm and the intention is to observe and contemplate the different species and their ways of cultivation.
Furthermore, the greenhouse is enormous and, for this reason, it takes almost 15 minutes inside the ?boat?.
It may seem like a sacral attraction, and in fact it can be if you don't like this type of tour. But for people who like long hours, sustainable things and families, it can be a really cool attraction.
It's worth mentioning, for very hot days, just a place to rest your legs with a pleasant temperature, might be a good idea too!
In some specific areas, you can listen to the narration about the plants present there. In addition, each of them carries a plaque with the popular and scientific names.
Without a doubt, it is 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 booking it directly at disney website.
I had the pleasure of taking this tour during Disney's Influencers of Magic program. It really is amazing.
In it you pass through the parts where Living with the Land passes, but you walk, seeing some plants, some you are invited to touch and some fruits and vegetables you can even eat straight from the tree.
Just 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 different parts of Living with the Land (you can see the little boats passing by), follow our video on youtube.
