    Awesome Planet

    The Circle of Life: An Environmental Fable had its last showing on February 3, 2018 and Awesome Planet took its place and began on January 17, 2020. Awesome Planet explores the spectacular beauty, diversity and dynamic story of Earth. In collaboration with the Disney Conservation Fund, the 10-minute film uses in-theater effects (including wind, scents and water) to tell the story of life on this planet and why it’s vitally important to care for it. Awesome Planet features narration by Ty Burrell, star of ABC’s Modern Family.

    Living with the Land Boat Ride

    A relaxing 13-minute boat ride takes you on an informative journey through a tropical rain forest, an African desert complete with sandstorm, and the windswept plains of a small, turn-of-the-century family farm. Guests experience the struggles of the past and plans for farming in the future including Hydroponics, Aeroponics and Aquaculture. It's not just about fruits and veggies, fish farms are on display.

    FUN FACT: If you are enjoying fresh vegetables or fish at an Epcot restaurant, it's likely that they were grown right here.

    Since The Land is a Disney restaurant supplier, You could very well be seeing your entreé. Wonder where those Mickey shaped cucumbers in your salad came from? This is where they're grown.

    The educational content on this ride is geared more towards adults, but younger guests will love the boat ride and spotting the different fruits and vegetables.
