Listen To The Land

You may be familiar with the Living With The Land boat ride inside The Land pavilion at Epcot. This attraction originally opened as Listen To The Land on October 1, 1982, Epcot Center’s opening day. The original attraction had a fabulous theme song entitled Listen To The Land. In fact, this is one of my favorite Epcot songs. In September of 1993, Listen To The Land was closed and the original opening, theme song, and ending were removed. The attraction re-opened in December as Living With The Land. While the Listen To The Land theme song can no longer be heard in its original form at the attraction, an instrumental version of the song can be heard as background music outside of The Land pavilion and also at the Garden Grill restaurant.

Take a closer look at the vikings near the center of the ship. Much like many of the park’s guests, one of the vikings is wearing a pair of mouse ears!

Churros

One of my favorite snacks to eat while visiting Epcot is the churro. These fried dough snacks, covered in cinnamon and sugar, are delicious! While you can find churros elsewhere throughout Walt Disney World, there is just something extra special about getting a churro from the Mexico Pavilion at Epcot.
