PHOTOS: See Living with the Land Transformed For the Holidays
Every holiday season, Disney World is transformed for the holidays — but some of our favorite transformations involve rides!
In Magic Kingdom, the Jungle Cruise becomes the Jingle Cruise, and in EPCOT, Figment gets a holiday sweater while Living with the Land gets some holiday updates too. And now it’s time for one of those EPCOT rides to shine!
Living with the Land Holiday Overlay
Over in the Land Pavilion, Living with the Land is ready for the holidays!
Let’s go on a visual tour of one of Disney’s best overlays! And we can tell ’tis the season because the produce has gifts stacked on top!
As we enter this part of Living with the Land, the holiday lights come into view. It’s a breathtaking sight I anticipate each year!
A biotech lab should never look this stunning, right? Don’t miss the holiday workers asking Santa to fill their stockings!
Of course, we really know the holidays have arrived when we glimpse the sparkling trees.
You’ll notice a path of lights from the sand to the top of the trees.
Here’s one of the cinematic tree decorations:
That puts the Christmas tree in my living room to shame!
In this shot, notice the picturesque Spaceship Earth setting surrounding the area. Disney hides its splendor in plain sight.
Imagineers do a remarkable job of framing the view from the boat, too. Pay attention to the three different attention-drawing spots in the sightline.
I also adore the way that cast members have decorated the plants.
The shrubberies on the left make me feel like I’m slacking with the holiday decorations in my front yard.
Speaking of which, hey, aquarium enthusiasts, here’s your measuring stick this holiday season!
Just look how tranquil this setting is.
Then, as you enter the new area, it’s equally calming.
Disney has even added the most unique Hidden Mickey at The Land pavilion at this overlay.
The glory of Living with the Land as a holiday overlay is that cast members decorate nearly everything.
No matter how many times I ride the Living with the Land holiday overlay, I will never get tired of this view.
While a picture is worth a thousand words, you may want some video. Here you go:
