Epcot's Future World

One of Walt Disney Worlds hidden little treasures is in The Land. EPCOT stands for "Experimental Community of Tomorrow" and the $6 walking tour at The Land, an expedition into experimental gardening called the Behind the Seeds Tour, is a delight for curious gardeners.

Walt Disney World's experimental horticultural program is an effort in conjunction with a number of U.S. Federal agencies to research and develop major food crops with the intention of increasing plant yield, efficiency and nutritional value. They are also experimenting with cloning plants for faster maturation and are developing new species of food crops. Beneficial insects are also in use in these research facilities.
