Hello everyone, and welcome to today’s #DisneyWorldCountdown post! Today is #Day74, and for this day, we are taking a look at the boat ride underneath the Garden Grill Restaurant called Living with the Land. Like many things at Epcot, this boat ride is both entertaining to ride — well, for me anyway — and also educational as well, as you get a chance to see how some of the vegetables and fruits are grown for consumption in some of the Walt Disney World restaurants.
The Living with the Land boat ride used to be narrated by a Cast Member — in fact, one of my best friends was the narrater during her stint in the Disney College Program back in the mid 1990s — but now, the boat ride is narrated with audio only via an intercom type system, not with a Cast Member. Still, the ride is a good time for relaxation, and well worth your time — especially if you have a few minutes before your Garden Grill reservation or Soarin’ FastPass+ time.
What I like is how they talk about the different seasons, and to me, it almost feels like I’m put in the middle of the scenes from the Wizard of Oz, with the great old house, the plains, and all the rest. I also think it is really neat that the Garden Grill Restaurant overtop us slowly spins and shows it’s patrons the same scenes that we see from the boat ride, with the exception of the horticulture scenes inside the big Greenhouse areas.
I don’t know about you, but I really enjoy Living with the Land. Do you? Let me know in the comments below, and thanks for stopping by as we explore Living with the Land! In closing, have a look at this giant pumpkin!
