One of Elly’s favorite places at Epcot is ‘The Land’, the name of a pavilion that sits on the western side of “Future World”. The Land covers six acres, making it the largest Epcot pavilion. At the front of the pavilion sits a futuristic glass greenhouse.
The 2.5 million square foot facility is dedicated to human interaction with the land itself. It explores how humans can both use the land for their benefit, and how they can also destroy it. Future Technology in better preserving the land is explored in the pavilion, along with a focus on the celebration of the land itself.
Living with the Land – Sponsored by Chiquita Banana – A boat ride about agriculture taking you from an indoor portion (featuring recycled audio-animatronics from the planned Western River Expedition) to a greenhouse revealing the plants grown in the Land. (We love this ride!!)
Soarin’ – A motion simulator attraction cloned from Disney California Adventure taking you over various regions of California. Wildly popular, get a FastPass for it first thing in the morning.
Circle of Life: An Environmental Fable – A 12-minute film about Simba describing symbiosis to Timon and Pumbaa.
In this video, we take a look around The Land pavilion at Epcot’s Future World before boarding the ‘Living With The Land’ ride. The ride begins at 9:30: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVo4aN62tRw

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???
We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.
We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney. Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
