One of our favorite places at Epcot is ‘The Land’ pavilion.
The Land covers six acres, making it Epcot’s largest pavilion. It includes a cool futuristic glass greenhouse. Keeping that glass greenhouse cool in the summer must be a nightmare for the maintenance cast members!
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 Boat Ride – Sponsored by Chiquita Banana – A 10 minute boat ride in air conditioned bliss taking you from an indoor story portion exploring rain forests and deserts and plains to a huge glass greenhouse revealing the plants, fruits and vegetables grown in The Land for Epcot restaurants, including hydroponic gardens and fish house.
We love this ride!! This is the best ride when it’s hot out and you need a break from walking around. There’s never a long wait to board, and you can sit and rest in air conditioned boats…very zen and calming.
We always grab a bite to eat afterwards at the Sunshine Seasons food court and try to schedule our Fast Passes for Soarin’ Around the World for after lunch.
This aquatic room always has a Hidden Mickey in it! Look closely!
For some good eats, the Sunshine Seasons food court is one of the best food courts at Walt Disney World! Delicious food (quick service, inexpensive) with chicken, pasta, Asian fried rice and chicken, sandwiches, fresh fruit, and bakery items available.
In addition, there’s a large amount of seating in the pavilion. A great place to take a break and cool off or get out of the rain in the summer.
We’ve written two books about our time working – and playing – as Disney Cast Members at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
