Take a narrated boat voyage through four recreated ecosystems before journeying through the pavilion's greenhouses, where Disney uses techniques such as hydroponics and aeroponics to grow some of the produce that's served in The Garden Grill restaurant that overlooks the boat ride. Living with the Land is one of Epcot's original attractions, though taped spiels have replaced the live cast members who used to narrate your ride.

It's a pretty good boat ride. It has two parts. The first part involves your boat passing through sets depicting different environments. It's really well done (especially the rain forest). The next part is a trip through the greenhouses. Seeing all the different fruits and the backstage area is actually pretty interesting. Waits are usually not to long, another reason to check this ride out. - Manny Barron

While waiting for my Fastpass time for Soarin', I decided to give Living with the Land I try, and I was pleasantly surprised. It is very relaxing, nicely themed, and very educational. Disney does a great job teaching the importance of conservation, without being in-your-face about it. It's a very lengthy ride, so be prepared if your on a tight schedule. If you have the chance though, don't miss it. While it is not Epcot's crown jewel, it may very well be its hidden gem. 7 out of 10. - Joshua Bixler

I really liked this ride. I did not want to go but the rest of my party did so I tagged along. I found it educational and interesting. Good way to rest and sit for a while. Has a long duration but it kept my attention the entire time. There was no wait at all for it either. Highly recommend. (9/10) - Lexi R

If your in need of a nap, or a place to rest your feet, this is one of Epcot's best offerings. - Mike Brilhart

This gentle water ride maybe describes best what Epcot is all about: edutainment and progress. It starts with a beautiful dark ride portion (see the rain forest scene, it's really breathtaking) before you pass the gate into various laboratories, in which the most different kinds of produce (plants, fruits and vegetables) are grewn. Although you might experience a flashback to your biology lessons in high school, it really is entertaining and educating at the same time. Maybe more important, you get a gilmpse behind the scenes. Watch out, you might witness some scientists at work. - Chris W.

Always a great after-lunch ride to take as it is slow and very educational. I love it and make a must-see whenever I go to EPCOT. - Jay Ubilla

Never fails to impress. A live guide and updates scenes would be nice. 8/10. - David L.

Living with the Land is a truely inspirational attraction. It shows us alot of the work Disney is doing to save the environment. I really like the aquaculture part of the ride. I love it too because its always a 5 min wait and the queue has interesting sayings to read. A definate must ride - Justin Knight

A very interesting calm ride on how humans impact the Land. And to hear about all the different ways Disney is helping the environment proves they care about the Land. - Justin Knight
