Living with the Land takes you on a quick boat tour of the ecosystems
of the world from rainforest, to desert, to the farmlands of the
North American plains.
After describing each of these in turn, the problems of poor
land management and over population are reviewed -- and some of
the technology and techniques that are being developed to improve
those situations are introduced.
Towards the middle of the ride, problem and theory gives way
to practical solutions as the boat tours a huge agricultural development
lab. Multiple crops, vertical growing, hydroponics, sea farming
(in which fish and eels are "cultivated") and other techniques
(including several NASA experiements) are displayed and explained.
Much of the salad greens that are served at the various EPCOT
restaurants is actually grown in the Land pavilion.
This is truely an educational attraction, while being interesting
and entertaining at the same time.
Note: Living with the Land now features the Disney FastPass system.
