  • News Epcot closed "Living with the Land" ride.... (for refurb)

    for some much needed refurbishment to the backstage areas of the ride.


    Walt Disney World has closed the Living With the Land boat ride at Epcot for refurbishment of the backstage area.

    In a statement, the theme park said it plans to reopen the ride this fall after the work is complete. The boat ride takes visitors through a mock-up of the evolution of the land. It has 40 animatronics and takes people through the Disney World greenhouse where more than 30 tons of fruits and vegetables are grown annually.

    Unofficial Disney Web sites say the ride was closed Aug. 2 without notice.

    I hope it will be open when we get there in Sept. I was really looking forward to that ride.

      I believe the official date for it's re-opening is Nov 1st, which means I'll miss it this year. Shame, because we only rode it for the first time in '07 and really liked it.
      Haven't been back since, and now we won't be able to check it out.

      I'd like to know if this has an impact on the "Behind the Seeds" tour.

                Living with the land is great

                glad it's just getting a refurb, don't scare me with slogans like that.

                While they're working on it though, they should probably get rid of its fastpass. It's just completely unnecessary for the ride and makes the line move funny. When I was at the park last New Years, I noticed it was literally the only attraction that didn't sell out of fastpass.

                  Rumor is new boats are being installed as well. But that isn't confirmed yet.

                    Bummer, we missed that on our first trip last year, and I was hoping to get around to it when I go in two weeks.

                        Living with the Land is receiving new boats, which apparently are larger than the previous ones, and thus the flume is being modified in certain locations. The video in the barn is also being updated/changed.

                          Will the ride be open for the December Holiday season?

                            I believe the rumor is it will be back up for early November.
