    Thank you so much for posting this video. I informed my daughter’s Environmental Science teacher that it was up as she was trying to find a better video than the ones she found on you tube. I love this ride and since it was down when we were at WDW last trip we did the Living with the Land tour and loved that too. I’m not a gardner at home but still found the tour and for that matter the ride fun.
    My favorite place to take a nap isn’t really a slow moving ride but a show Muppet Vision 3D. My daughter gets made every time we go in because I instantly slump down in my chair and close my eyes. It’s cool and just long enough for a quick nap.

    Thanks for another great video Rick! Believe it or not, this is by far, my favorite ride/attraction at EPCOT. It’s a nice ride to get you off your feet, it’s cool, educational, and the sights and smells are amazing. I espcially enjoy the smells and sights in the Rainforest section. If you are lucky enough to get the chance, try and ride in the front seat. The views are the best for filming, and you have lots of leg room. My favorite attraction to just sit ad cool off and chill has to be the American Adventure in EPCOT. It’s so relaxing to me. I have to be careful though because the older I get, the tougher it is for me to fight off the urge to fall asleep in the theater.
    Thanks again for the video of Living with the land. I actually got a little Giddy watching it. Can’t wait to experiance it again in April and can’t wait to see The Flower and Garden show!

    Our first trip to Disney we had just eaten upstairs, the kids saw this ride and wanted to go. We went. Believe it or not the kids actually enjoyed it. Especially when we went to the greenhouse. My major in college was Horticulture so my kids have always been around plants. When we were there they had pumpkins and watermelons growing in the shape of Mickey Mouse, it was very interesting what all they are doing. I think I would love working at WDW in that area or in any of the areas with all the plants. I have to say this is my favorite kick back ride especially when you have just had a great meal.

    See Ya Next Week

    I love the cool down rides. I keep a hectic pace when in WDW and without the slower paced rides I would get no rest. 🙂
    I always enjoy Living With The Land. I find it fascinating. My other favorite cool down rides are in Epcot, too. Spaceship Earth, and Ellen’s Energy Adventure. I have nodded off in both for a second or two. Epcot is usually our first stop after the plane ride and the 4am wake up, so…
    Thanks again Rick, for the peek into WDW. I miss it so badly and these videos keep me in the Disney happy mode.

    Thanks for posting this video. Living with the Land is one of our favorite attractions. My 7 year old daughter was watching this with me, and surprised me by reciting the lines for parts of the greenhouse tour just before they happened on the video. I’m a proud Disney mom!
    I am usually good for a quick nap in the France pavilion movie, Muppet Vision, and the final descent on Spaceship Earth.
    Until next week…

    Thanks for giving me a little Epcot fix!! I love Living With the Land and the Behind the Seeds tour. I try to do both whenever I am at WDW.

    As far as my favorite slow moving ride, it would have to be Spaceship Earth. No matter how many times I ride it, I never get tired of it. It is always the very last thing I ride on my last day at WDW, no matter how many times I’ve ridden it duing my stay.

    Thanks again, Rick, for another great video. It’s a little piece of Disney magic every week.

    Thanks Rick for posting this vid. I love Living with the Land. It is very educational and I love the greenhouses. I never knew that bananas were the #1 eaten fruit. Favorite scene? The rainforest scene. My favorite slow ride is really more of a transit ride. It is the Walt Disney World Railroad at the Magic Kingdom. I can relax and rest my legs. On Living with the Land I also like the fishery.

    Hi Rick,
    Another great video of one of my “must sees” when I visit Epcot. It’s so
    educational and I don’t have a green thumb but I enjoy learning about the various plants.

    Put me in a theater like viewing the film in Paris or at the Amercian Adventure and I usually take a little nap although I hate doing this because I really enjoy both of these attractions.

    Have a happy day!


  9. Jeff Barkee says:

    Living with the Land is a great experience. Pure Epcot!

    By my eyes, it looks like they’ve “plussed” the greenhouses since the last time I rode it. I’ll look forward to seeing them in person on my next trip.

    It’s unfortunate that you seem to have had a toddler on board with you providing their own “soundtrack” for the ride. But, of course, this is one of the commonplace and happily accepted “nusiances” of visiting Disney World.

    Spaceship Earth is not just my favorite slow ride at Disney World, it’s my favorite ride……period.
    Again……PURE EPCOT!


  10. Robert Nordmark says:

    Hey Rick, Yes this is a slow moving cool down attraction. There is another one in the same building. I can’t remember the name of it but it a movie that involves the characters from The Lion King. I think the movie talks about taking care of the earth. Anyway, both of these attractions are great for a change of pace and a chance to slow down.

    See you next week.



  11. Jeanne Cundiff says:

    I love Living with the Land attraction. When we were there in October the pumpkins were growing which was really cool. My other fav slow down ride is the MK Transit Authority. I just love looking at the park from up there.
    Thanks for another great video!

    Loved the video, It gave me a chance to just focus on what you focused on. I am usually in visual overload. My favorite slow moving ride has got to be spaceship earth. Every time I’m on it I see something new. Take care, look forward to next weeks video.


  13. Thelma Huss says:

    A very relaxing ride. Education as a plus. Yes, one of the best slow rides.


  14. Kevin Nelson says:

    Living With the Land is a great educational ride, we always ride it after Soarin’! My boys love seeing the fish. I just love EPCOT and my absolute favorite slow moving ride is Spaceship Earth, I never nap though, it’s to cool! If I were to need a nap I think the countries films would do it, but not The American Adventure, I LOVE american history, not so much other countries history! Thanks Rick, I’m looking forward to next week, keep that smile on!


  15. Sue M. says:

    Always go on Living With the Land. It’s perfect for a rest, or to digest my lunch at Sunshine Seasons 🙂 My other favs for slow rides are Spaceship Earth and the Transit Authority in MK. Perfect for a rest and get off my feet.

    Would love to see an episode on The Beach Club 🙂 Looking forward to a first stay there in Aug!


  16. Sue M. says:

    Forgot to add Carousel of Progress for fav slow rides! I was surprised my daughters (in early 20’s) actually enjoyed this attraction. Didn’t think they would, so I avoided it the first few visits.


  17. Debbie Bolen says:

    Thanks for the great ride. This is one of my favorite slow-moving-let-my-feet-rest rides. I don’t find it boring at all, just relaxing! I also enjoy the Circle of Life in the Land pavilion – it is on my must do things. The food area is amazing – I could sit for hours there.
    Keep up the great work – see you next week!


  18. Brian says:

    Thanks for covering so many things at WDW, not just the headliners. It helps fans like me spend a few minutes in a Disney mood when we cannot be there.

    My favorite cool down spot would be Mickeys Philharmagic although that isn’t my nap place. That would be around the corner at the Hall of Presidents.

    Looking forward to next week(as usual)
