I agree with you, I still like this attraction. I've also done the "Behind the Seeds Tour", it's about 2 hours and I think it's only around $10-$12. If you plan it right with Fast Passes to Soarin' and late lunch at Seasons, you could easily spend 4 hours inside this pavilion during the hottest portion of a Florida afternoon.

I enjoy going on this ride. I love to spot Mickey shaped fruit and vegetables.

Is the "Behind the Seeds" tour really that inexpensive? Speaking of tour pricing, can anyone tell me where to find that kind of info online? I couldn't find pricing on the Disney site, just tour descriptions.

...ok, sorry back on topic now

I believe Ms. Swann mentioned the Animation Academy at DCA and I wholeheartedly agree. I think I did 3 classes in a row once...none of the drawings were any good though. :shock:

We did the "Behind the Seeds" tour on our last trip 12/09 and it was not that cheap, I wish it were! I believe with our Disney Visa discount we payed $45 for DH and I.

I thought you could see prices of tours on that section of the site?! If not, you could always call I suppose?!

I didn't know there was so much love for "Living with the Land"!

I knew it was fairly inexpensive, I think we also had a FL resident discount if I remember correctly.

Here are the photos of my tour:

Nice pictures Lobelto ~ It is amazing how they grow some of the produce! Was that a pumpkin being forced into a mickey shape in that form? I was thinking tomato but then in the later picture it looked like pumpkins around it. It looks like it would be an interesting tour :D

Cool pictures Lobelto, as I have never been on this ride or tour. I wonder how they smuggled in the Cuban Oregano??? ;)
