Whenever we visit a museum or park, I try to arrange a behind the scenes tour for our family as my experience has shown that this greatly enhances the visit.
One of our favorite "rides" at Epcot is the "Living With The Land Boat Ride".
When we were at Epcot last September with my parents, I discovered all the behind the scenes tours you can take at Walt Disney World. The "Living with the Land" one is one of the few that Ben and Shira are old enough to do. This January, when my cousin was visiting from South Africa, we went to Epcot and did the Living with the Land Behind the scenes tour.
I highly recommend the tour to all homeschooling parents. The educational aspect has just enough cookiness built in to make it a whole lot of fun for the kids.
They put growing pumpkins into Mickey Mouse molds and force the pumpkins into those shapes
They also do the same with cucumbers
My kids, the tomato eating fanatics, fell in love with the tomato tree.
Ben was fascinated by this brand new display of aquaculture combining with hydroponics
Did you know that they try to grow enough produce hydroponically to fulfill the needs of the table service restaurants?
