From immersive attractions, flavorful festivals, and interactive pavilions that spark your curiosity and enable you to experience cultures and cuisine from around the world, EPCOT truly offers something for everyone. And with the park transforming before our eyes – and preparing to celebrate its 40th anniversary on Oct. 1 – it’s an exciting time to experience EPCOT!
And now, there are three more reasons to visit! I’m thrilled to share additional fan-favorite tours from our Enchanting Extras Collection are returning to EPCOT beginning Oct. 2, adding to and completing the previously announced lineup of highly popular tours returning to Walt Disney World Resort.
These personalized experiences offer an exciting look at the magic of possibilities and provide you with the unique ability to experience EPCOT by land and by sea!
Experience The Land:
If you like the Living with the Land attraction at EPCOT or have an interest in gardening and natural sciences, then you’ll love Behind the Seeds!
This one-hour walking tour gives you an up-close and personal view of amazing plants, insects and fish throughout four state-of-the-art greenhouses.
Take in the sights and smells of unusual crops from around the world as you explore the future of agriculture. Your knowledgeable guide will help you discover some of the latest plant-growing techniques in use at The Land, including hydroponics, and provide ideas you can try at home in your own garden!
Experience The Seas:
The Seas with Nemo & Friends is home to more than 2,000 sea creatures representing over 90 aquatic species including sea turtles, angelfish, dolphins, eagle rays and sharks.
With the return of EPCOT Seas Adventures – DiveQuest, guests once again can dive right into this 5.7-million-gallon saltwater environment and immerse themselves into the sea life surrounding the coral reef. This experience offers SCUBA-certified guests guaranteed calm seas, unlimited visibility, no current and incredible marine life.
If you aren’t SCUBA-certified or prefer to stay on your “sea legs,” don’t worry; there is a tour for you, too! With the return of EPCOT Seas Adventures – Dolphins in Depth, guests can meet the bottlenose dolphins at The Seas to learn about their complex undersea behavior and talk with the experts who work with them every day.
These guest-favorite tours return beginning Oct. 2 and are on sale beginning Aug. 22 on DisneyWorld.com or the My Disney Experience app. Due to the popularity of these tours, advance bookings are highly recommended. Please note the Behind the Seeds experience requires a valid theme park admission and reservation. For a complete list of the Enchanting Extras Collection across Walt Disney World Resort, click here.
