Breaking: Living with the Land Adds Plastic Separators

New safety measures have been put into place at Epcot’s Living with the Land, and like Kilimanjaro Safari, the view you have may not be a pleasant one. See the photos below!

Our favorite pirate has been in the parks extensively since reopening, and today he discovered a new safety measure that has been implemented on the Living with the Land attraction at Epcot.

Living with the Land

Living with the Land is a slow and gentle boat attraction located in Future World. Guests will see firsthand how Walt Disney World horticulturists are using innovative growing techniques and cross-breeding crops to help feed the planet.

During this tour, Guests will be inspired by a hopeful vision for farming’s future.

Even better: you can enjoy the food that is grown at the Living with the Land attraction during your stay at Epcot! Both Sunshine Seasons and Garden Grill Restaurant serve fresh produce and seafood from the farm!

What Safety Measures Have Been Implemented?

Upon Epcot’s reopening, which occurred on July 15, current safety measures included no plastic partitions and seating Guests every other row.

Even as recently as this morning when Kenny rode the boat tour this morning, the above measures were being used.

However, within one hour of riding, Kenny the Pirate noticed a change when he went to ride it a second time: now Guests are seated every row but plastic separators were installed.

Check out the photo below:

Plastic separators are also used on that ride as well, located in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and they cause a terrible view from the middle seats.

Not such a great view, huh? We would recommend if you ride Living with the Land to ask to be seated on the outside seats. Or, at the very least, be prepared to avoid looking straight ahead.

What do you think of these separators? Do you think they diminish the overall experience of the attraction? Share your thoughts with us on Facebook. You can also join our friendly KtP Crew and continue the discussion.

  1. We rode this on Sunday, and it was not a big deal for us on this ride. I image that it could cause bigger issues on other rides.

  2. I usually look out the sides, not the front. What you want to see for the most part can be seen out the sides, I don’t see this as a big deal. It gives the attraction more capacity and keeps guests safe.
