The fact that this has happened twice is enough to make fans hesitant to ride…

In the heart of EPCOT’s Future World, nestled within The Land Pavilion, lies a captivating attraction known as Living with the Land. This educational boat ride takes guests on a journey through diverse ecosystems, showcasing innovative agricultural techniques and the wonders of nature. As the boat glides along the gentle currents, visitors are immersed in a world where sustainability and harmony with the environment are paramount.

While this ride is typically known for its tranquil and relaxing appeal, one guest recently experienced anything but that.

Living With the Land

Throughout the ride, guests can witness firsthand the magic of the creative greenhouse, where plants defy gravity and grow in unconventional ways. The string greenhouse, with its hanging crops, and the temperate greenhouse, showcasing a variety of fruits and vegetables, offer a glimpse into the future of farming. These greenhouses serve as a testament to human ingenuity and the endless possibilities of working with the land in innovative ways.

Living with the Land not only educates but also inspires guests to appreciate the interconnectedness of all living things. From learning about aquaculture and aquaponics to the importance of preserving natural resources, each scene along the journey conveys a message of stewardship and respect for the world around us. The ride is a celebration of sustainability, showcasing how, even in the modern age, traditional farming practices can coexist harmoniously with cutting-edge technology.

As the boat navigates through the tranquil waters, passing by scenes of thriving crops and serene landscapes, guests are reminded of the beauty and abundance that nature provides. The ride’s finale, featuring a bountiful prairie and a working farm, reinforces the idea that living in harmony with the land is not just a concept but a way of life. Living with the Land invites visitors to reflect on their role in preserving the environment and encourages them to carry forward the lessons learned during their journey.

However, one recent guest visiting the attraction did not quite get to experience this wonder and glory and was instead disrupted when the ride’s escalator ate their shoe.

“Claimed Another Victim”

One X post showing the incident reads;

“The escalator in The Land has claimed another victim.”

In the attached photo, you can see that a shoe has been deeply wedged into the teeth of the escalator.

Shockingly enough, this is not the first time that this has happened. Nevertheless, this incident is truly a nightmare for many Disney theme park guests who enjoy their shoes and would like to keep them. As a reminder, it is always important to keep your shoes safe from these teeth as you are exiting the escalator.

  1. I think the key here is to watch where you’re going and pick your feet up! If you just stand there when it hits the end it will “eat your shoes”. I’ve always been leery of those things!
