Rehabilitate? Or, Eliminate? – Living with the Land

Living with the Land.  Should we rehabilitate?  Give it a bit of a facelift, maybe?  Should we eliminate?  Replace it altogether?  Or, should we leave it alone?  What’s your vote?

OK.  Last chance to jump back to trivia, everyone!  The answers are just below the next pictures.  C’mon!  You know you want to go back and take the challenge!

#1 – Living with the Land was originally opened in 1982!

#2 – In the prairie scene, how many buffalo roam free?  3!  See?  Two adults and a ‘itty bitty’ baby!

#3 – In the farm scene, what sits atop the mailbox?  A rooster!

#4 – In cooperation with the USDA, during the ride, Living with the Land presents a peek inside their Biotechnology Lab!

#5 – There are five distinct areas of Epcot’s “living laboratory”.  Laboratory Greenhouse is not one of those areas.

#6 – Living with the Land replaced a former attraction called Listen to the Land!

#7 – Each ride through Living with the Land takes 19 minutes and 55 seconds!

#8 – The attraction is currently sponsored by Chiquita!

How did you do?  Did you ace the “test”?  If so, leave us a comment and tout your feat!  Hey!  Don’t forget the ‘Rehabilitate? Or, Eliminate?’ challenge, all.  It’ll run for a few more days!

Rehabilitate? Or, Eliminate? – Living with the Land

Do you remember this feature, folks?  Rehabilitate?  Eliminate?  I’ll admit it.  It has been a long time since I’ve run one.

Well, if you need a reminder – or are new to the site – let me tell you how it works.  Warning, my friends.  It’s time to “make believe”!

Welcome to the The Walt Disney Company!  I hope you are enjoying your “career” in Disney’s design and development division – Walt Disney Imagineering!

As you know, WDI is responsible for the creation and construction of Disney theme parks worldwide, and we need your help!

Tap into your creativity.  Imagine that you’re an … Imagineer!  Yes!  In fact, in today’s case, you’re a “re-imagineer”!

Living with the Land.  Should we rehabilitate?  Give it a bit of a facelift, maybe?  Should we eliminate?  Replace it altogether?  Or, should we leave it alone?

Your task, today, is a two-part job.  First, what’s your vote?  Second, if you want to rehabilitate, what do you suggest we do?  If you want to eliminate, what should take its place?  What’s your “Project Plan”?

Leave your comments on this post, on Facebook, or on Twitter, my friends!  Have some fun!  What should we do with Epcot’s “living laboratory”?

Let’s Have Some Fun “with the Land”! This Week’s Trivia BLAST!

Good Wednesday, folks!  One has to wonder … with Disney pretty much refurbishing everything in sight, is Epcot’s Living with the Land on their ‘hit list’?

As attractions go, it’s not the most exciting experience in Walt Disney World.  Having said that, it’s one of our family favorites.

It sure does serve a purpose, though, doesn’t it?  Hey!  What else are you going to do while you’re waiting for your Soarin’ FP+ to come to life?

Like us, I bet you’ve enjoyed Living with the Land dozens of times.  Have you paid attention to its detail, however?

Tackle these trivia questions, folks.  Are you an expert in each of The Land’s nuances?  Yes?  Let’s see!

The answers will come in a few days, my friends, so stay tuned!  Oh!  And, by the way, I’ll unveil yet another exciting “challenge” tomorrow!  Stop back!

OUR Favorite WDW Things That Are NOT Attractions!

On the latest episode of the WDW Main Street Podcast, Doug, Dennis, and John hung out at the pub to discuss their favorite things to do … that are not attractions.

WDW Main Street – Episode #365 – Our Favorite Things That Are NOT Attractions!

Hmm.  That got me to thinking.  What are our favorite things to do that are not attractions?  Mrs. All in WDW?  What do you think?

1  –  Disney Springs

Definitely Disney Springs.  At one point, Doug Davis asked us if we were going to visit anywhere else in WDW other than Disney Springs.

Why would we?  Actually, we do go to the parks plenty, of course, but Disney has done a great job re-imagining Downtown Disney.  Here are just a few of our favorite “attractions”:

  • Paddlefish
  • The Boathouse
  • Morimoto Asia
  • Splitsville
  • Wolfgang Puck Express – Marketplace
  • Starbucks – West Side

2  –  Crescent Lake

We love, love, love, Crescent Lake … especially the BoardWalk.  Let us describe the ways!

We love a morning walk from Disney’s Hollywood Studios to the BoardWalk area.  In fact, Mrs. All in WDW really enjoys going over early in the morning for a cup of coffee and a walk.

We love lounging along Stormalong Bay.  Sometimes, we’ll buy a bottle of wine, grab a couple of outdoor chairs at the Yacht Club, and enjoy the afternoon sunshine.

Other times, we’ll pull up a stool at Hurricane Hanna’s Waterside Bar and Grill.  A great pool view.  Friendly bartenders.  Refreshing drinks.  Yum!

Then, there are the restaurants and bars.  Great places like …

  • Belle Vue Lounge
  • ESPN Club
  • Cape May Cafe
  • Crew’s Cup Lounge
  • Captain’s Grille
  • Ale and Compass Lounge
  • Cabana Bar and Beach Club
  • Shula’s Steak House
  • Todd English’s bluezoo

3  –  Laguna Bar

In light of the massive refurbishment going on at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, Mrs. All in WDW and I live in fear of Laguna’s demise.

We’ve made, what we hope to be, lifetime friends at that little lakeside bar, and it holds a very special place in our hearts.  If it survives, we’ll be overjoyed!

That’s the short list for us, folks.  How about you?  What are your favorite things that are NOT attractions?  Leave us some comments and let us know!
