For those who are a fan of Living with the Land at EPCOT you may have been disappointed if you have been there the past couple of weeks. This attraction has been closed since August 21st, and Cast Members have been standing outside blocking the entrance. There is no official word of what the closure was due to. There was no scheduled refurbishment or maintenance that we know of.
Although Living with the Land may not be a thrill ride, it is worth doing. Many Guests look forward to this because it is a very relaxing and interesting attraction. There are also many hidden Mickeys throughout the ride, so make sure to keep your eyes open for those. The gardens you see along this ride are foods used in many restaurants around the Walt Disney World Resort. Disney does their part to try to help be as environmentally friendly as possible and also use new gardening techniques, some of which are explained on the ride. Although it is a very educational ride, it is very interesting, and once it is near the Christmas season, the ride becomes holiday themed. It is a very nice relaxing ride and an excellent opportunity to take a little break after walking around the parks all day. A great attraction for the whole family.
We’re just glad that there weren’t any serious problems with this attraction and it is back up and running. Wait times have been very low in the parks recently, so it should be very easy to get on this ride. It’s definitely worth doing and not one that you should skip.
