What is Living with the Land at Epcot?
Living with the Land is a slow boat ride attraction at Epcot’s The Land Pavilion within World Nature.
On this ride, you’ll be walked through the history of farming when humans arrived.
You’ll also learn about current day sustainable agriculture solutions.
During this ride, you’ll be taken through Disney’s temperate greenhouses, tropical greenhouse, the rainforest…
Plus other creative houses where they grow food onsite using specialized irrigation systems and look at the future of farming & agriculture. eDKUimxsR78
Hidden figment on this Epcot ride

Both of those restaurants are located onsite with the Land Pavilion.
So you can grab a freshly grown snack after your land boat ride.
You’ll see cast member Scientists in the back working hard on experiments too.
Additionally, you’ll go through a fish farming area.
This was particularly cool for my toddler to see all the fish they are maintaining. It’s like going through a small aquarium.
PRO Disney World Planning TIP - You can take a behind the scenes tour of Living with the Land called “Behind the SEEDS Tour.”
You do need to book online reservations for this though.
The tour lasts an hour, but you’ll get a peek into their bio-lab to learn more about all the greenhouses and about their integrated pest management which focuses on insects.
Where is Living With The Land ride located at Disney World?
You’ll find this ride at Epcot theme park in The Land Pavilion.
Find the ride in the World Nature section of the park
Other things near it include Soarin’ Around the World, Awesome Planet, and two onsite restaurants.
The Land Pavilion is just a few steps away from the Imagination Pavilion.
There’s another family-friendly ride in that pavilion as well called Journey into Imagination that features Figment the Purple Dragon.
Check out my video walk through featuring Figment.
Getting to Living with the Land Pavilion at Epcot
The Land Pavilion which houses this ride is pretty much smack in the middle of Epcot.
You can enter the park from two distinct areas.
One is the main front entrance near the monorail. From there, you’ll pass Spaceship Earth, pass the Seas with Nemo & Friends, then the Land Pavilion will be on your right.
Alternatively, if you’re staying at a Walt Disney World Resort, you can enter Epcot using the Disney Skyliner entrance. This entrance will drop you off at the back of Epcot near the France Pavilion & United Kingdom Pavilion.
From there, you’ll walk along the water bridges and pass the Imagination Pavilion on your left. Continue past that and the Land Pavilion will be on your left.
PRO Disney Planning TIP - If you have time for breakfast in the morning and are in the France Pavilion, I highly recommend that you swing by Les Halles for a French pastry.
They are delicious and this is a quick service restaurant, so no reservations needed.
This ride lasts 15 - 20 minutes end-to-end.

Disney dining tips from Jenna Loves Magic
Remember: for any sit-down dinner or character meal, I recommend to definitely book 60 days out, or whenever your Disney dining dates open.
If you’re staying on site, you can book dining reservations earlier as a perk.
Don’t have reservations? Check regularly during your trip, on the app, or walk up to the restaurant early in the day and request a day-of reservation. Disney reservations are often dropped day-of since sometimes people “hoard them”.
I once was a walk-up and was told there would be a 90 minute wait for a table at Steakhouse 71.
Not a problem, since it’s an interesting hotel to walk around and they have an arcade.
Anyways, within 5 minutes my reservation was ready because someone canceled. So you never know.

Have fun learning about all the fabulous work Disney is doing to stay eco-friendly.
Hope that answers all your questions about Living with the Land Ride at Epcot.
