Living with the Land is a 14-minute boat ride in Future World at Epcot that explores agricultural advances occurring around the world.

Each boat set sail with up to 40 passengers on their boat. Every voyage offers guest the experience to discover living laboratories as they cruise past the American plains, a tropical rain forest and the African desert to observe the latest developments in aquaculture and desert farming. Guest will be amazed by the experimental greenhouses where produce is not only grown, but given those fun Mickey shapes for Epcot restaurants. Guest will also get a fascinating first-hand look at an aqua environment, the Aquacell, with alligators and fish. The greenhouses grow crops native to many cultures, including rice, sugar cane and bananas.

This thought-provoking ride will leave you amazed at the wondrous ways scientists are helping farmers prepare for the food needs of our world’s nations.
