Walt Disney World’s Behind the Seeds Tour Inspired Guest’s Career Path

It is amazing to see the way that Disney has an impact on everyday lives.  Disney Parks Blog shared an amazing story about Michael Ogden, who credits the Behind the Seeds tour at Epcot.  He took this tour back when he was a teenager and it sparked his interest in plants.  He build his own hydroponic system of fruits and vegetables in his family’s basement in Canada.  Since then, Michael continued his studies and interest to become a plant scientist, focusing PhD research on molecular biology. Michael visited the Disney Agricultural Sciences team to celebrate their passion for all things plants.

Take a look at this fun video of the visit:

It is cool that Disney had such an impact on a guest and helped to shape his career forever.  For other guests who are interested in agriculture and plants, they should definitely check out the Living with the Land attraction as well as the Behind the Seeds tour.  The tour takes guests on a journey to explore the science behind sustainable food production and learn how hydroponics and diverse planting methods can work together to help feed the world.

The Behind the Seeds tour is offered at Epcot’s The Land pavilion a few times throughout the day.  Guests can book the tour by calling 407-WDW-TOUR to make a reservation.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
