One of my favorite attractions at Walt Disney World is Living with the Land. I especially love the second half of the ride where you take the slow journey through the greenhouses. This is likely because I am such a bad gardener and am awed but the amazing plants and trees on display. That’s why we were so excited to do the Behind the Seeds Tour at Epcot’s The Land Pavilion during our #EPICDisney vacation. Not only was it incredibly informative, it has to be one of the biggest hidden bargains at Walt Disney World. For the low, low, low, low bargain price of $25pp you get a one-hour-ish (likely a little more) walking tour of the research facility and greenhouses.
