EPCOT’s 40th anniversary keeps inching closer, and we keep hoping for any updates on what Disney will be doing to celebrate. We did get some news from Disney about fan-favorite tours returning for the 40th birthday of EPCOT. Let’s take a look at what’s to come.
Experience The Land:
If guests like the Living with the Land attraction at EPCOT or are interested in gardening and natural sciences, they’ll love Behind the Seeds!
This one-hour walking tour gives guests an up-close and personal view of unique plants, insects, and fish throughout four state-of-the-art greenhouses.
Guests can take in the sights and smells of unusual crops from around the world as they explore the future of agriculture. Their knowledgeable guide will help them discover some of the latest plant-growing techniques at The Land, including hydroponics, and provide ideas they can try at home in their garden!
Experience The Seas:
The Seas with Nemo & Friends is home to over 2,000 sea creatures representing over 90 aquatic species, including sea turtles, angelfish, dolphins, eagle rays, and sharks.
With the return of EPCOT Seas Adventures – DiveQuest, guests once again can dive right into this 5.7-million-gallon saltwater environment and immerse themselves in the sea life surrounding the coral reef. This experience offers SCUBA-certified guests guaranteed calm seas, unlimited visibility, no current, and incredible marine life.
If guests aren’t SCUBA-certified or prefer to stay on their “sea legs,” don’t worry; there is a tour for them, too! With the return of EPCOT Seas Adventures – Dolphins in Depth, guests can meet the bottlenose dolphins at The Seas to learn about their complex undersea behavior and talk with the experts who work with them every day.
These fan-favorite tours return beginning Oct. 2 and are on sale beginning Aug. 22 on DisneyWorld.com or the My Disney Experience app. I highly recommend booking these tours in advance because these tours are very popular. It’s important to note that to participate in the Behind the Seeds experience; you need a valid theme park admission and reservation.
Hi, I'm Erica, and I write about all things Disney. Before working for The DIS, I was a theme park performer at SeaWorld, but I also performed at Disney. I have such an immense love for theme parks to the point I studied them in college.
