Disney World Ride Features a Secret Greenhouse
ORLANDO, FL - If you doubt that Disney is the happiest place on Earth, maybe it's because you didn't know it has some skin in the fruit and veg game. According to delish, Disney World features a futuristic greenhouse that’s available for guests’ viewing via the Living with the Land ride, an educational boat tour located in Future World. The ride highlights the history of farming in addition to a glimpse at agricultural advances that have yet to come.
Disney pitches the ride as such: "Discover a cornucopia of fruits and veggies from around the world—some modified to jaw-dropping effect." This is in reference to the customized Mickey Mouse-shaped pumpkins, nine-pound lemons, and other uniquely-grown items featured in the greenhouse.
Travel & Leisure, reports that Disney World also harbors a food lab where innovative studies are conducted. Furthermore, soil-less hydroponic and integrated pest management systems can be accessed via the “Behind the Seeds” tour, where guests can interact with animals, sample produce, and learn about growing techniques used at the park.
