Was the artwork all Disney themed or was there other types of work? I'm a painter and looking into participating in this next year.

Not all of it was Disney themed. There were other non-Disney artists also showing their work.

and the food all looks incredible.

something I've always wondered, and never quite understood.. .. how do the food stands work? does Disney sell a "passport" that let's you sample all the food options? or do you need to buy each Ala carte?

if the 2nd, I could see that getting very expensive quickly, since I'd want to try everything!

but I'd do it. . . .

just wondering how the food stuff works?


I am pretty sure that I easily went through around $100 in food and drink during the spring garden/flower festival, Bert. And that's certainly not a complaint - it's just like you said...there is so much good stuff there that you want to try it all!

The main thing is to pace yourself and try not to overindulge on the heavy sweets (or beer) early so that you can eat a little, go do some attractions, rinse and repeat throughout the day/evening.

Hey TPR!


Just asking for a little bit of input about epcot.

First off, we are going to visit epcot in april. While looking at all the park has to offer, we came across the snorkeling experience at the living season pavilion and signed up for it. Has anyone on here experienced this? It was quite pricey, but we "hope" it will be as exciting as it looks.

Also, we were looking into the behind the seeds tour as well. Is it worth the time/money to check out?

Thanks for any input.

^I'm not a fan of snorkeling or scuba diving so I have not done either of those experiences. I know people who have done the Scuba experience and really enjoyed it, I'm assuming the snorkeling will be just as good.

We HAVE done the Behind the Seeds tour and really enjoyed it! Very cute and fun.

Thanks Robb for the review! Epcot is becoming one of my favorite parks in general so seeing things like this add to the experience is amazing.

I'll second that. It's short, inexpensive, educational, and entertaining. So if you've ever found yourself irrationally enjoying Living With the Land a little too much, it's definitely a good deal! :lmao:
