Hi Mamas! Today we are checking out one of many ways that Epcot is educational for you and your children. One of the most informational and educational tours at Walt Disney World is the Behind the Seeds tour at Epcot. Here you will go backstage to explore experimental plant growing techniques. Currently hydroponics, a method of growing plants without soil, is being used for a lot of the plants here. You will get to learn how this works. You will even learn some techniques that you can use at home in your garden. Disney grows a lot of their own vegetables that are served in the restaurants. There’s also a fish and alligator portion of the tour as well. You will see The Land Greenhouses at Epcot. And you will be shown some record breaking crops including a gigantic tomato plant that produces thousands and thousands of tomatoes.
Who can do this tour? It is great for all ages!
How long does it last? One hour
Can strollers and wheelchairs go on the tour? YES! You will be provided a small stroller for children and it is wheelchair accessible. It is a walking tour though so the rest of the family will need to be able to walk.
How much does this tour cost? $18 for age 10 and up and $14 for 3-9. Anyone under 3 is complimentary.
How often is the tour? Every day starting at 10:30 and the last tour is at 4:30.
You go to the desk next to Soarin’ in the Land to sign up. You can also call 407-WDW-TOUR if you prefer to book in advance.
I have personally taken this tour and it is really interesting. I think any age would love this tour because at all ages you will learn something. It moves quickly enough to hold everyone’s attention. One of the fun parts for kids is to look for the veggies that are being grown in the shape of Mickey heads. You will want to definitely take what you learn and apply it at home in your own garden.
