The Land Pavilion
More so than in any of the other Future World Pavilions, The Land Pavilion, both inside and outside exhibits ties to the environment. Even the landscaping around The Land was done in a fashion to embody the natural riches of our land while the trees nearest the entrance develop white blooms that are meant to look like clouds surrounding the upper portion of the mountain like building.
While glancing upward you will also notice the 5 large globes hanging from the ceiling. The upper most represents the earth, while the lower four each represent one of the seasons: Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall.
Entertainment + Education = Edutainment?
Walt Disney always believed that it was important to entertain the guests first, and if they were able to learn something in the process all the better. The topics presented in The Land are serious, but they are presented in a way that you can be entertained no matter your age or ability to grasp all of the concepts presented.
The Disney Imagineers do an excellent job of harmoniously linking the structure and its landscaping to the story of Environmental Awareness and Living in Harmony with Nature. The next time that you visit Epcot and you make your mad dash to ride Soarin', pay attention to everything else that The Land has to offer and you may come away with a better understanding of our Environment.
