Living With the Land

Living With the Land is located near Soarin’ in “The Land” building (there’s also a Sea building). This ride features a boat ride through Disney’s greenhouses. You learn about innovative processes for growing food that are being pioneered.

There are no drops and the boats move quite slowly, so anyone should be able to ride. It’s wheelchair accessible,

too, although those in scooters will have to transfer to conventional wheelchairs. Other than a brief period in which the lights are dimmed, and a simulated thunder crack or two, it is fine for most children.

The only qualms you may have about bringing the kids on Living With the Land is whether they will be sufficiently entertained. There isn’t much action in this ride – no pirates or cursed mummies here. Most of the ride is composed of a trip through varied ecosystems, including a desert and a rain forest, a tour of the greenhouses, and a look inside Disney’s fish farm. It is very interesting, but smaller, more hyper children may find it difficult to sit still through the entire thing.

Disney’s new movie, Monsters University, is coming out in theaters June 2013. It’s sort of a prequel to Monsters Inc., that movie with the lovable fuzzy Sully, witty one-eyed Mike Wazowski, and the adorable human girl Boo. They stole our hearts years ago, and now they’re coming back! (Well, Sully and Mike are, I don’t think Boo is in this movie.) The movie explains how Mike and Sully came to be best friends during their time in college.

To promote the movie, Disney made a highly amusing spoof of a college website for Monsters University. Complete with a message from the dean, MU merchandise to show your school spirit, and an event calendar, the site is super fun to explore. Check it out for yourself here!
