Well, Walt Disney World is nothing if not interesting lately. Guests have been adapting to the “new normal” with the pandemic protocols and procedures. Animatronic issues have been happening and now the boats at Living With The Land, in EPCOT, were going backwards for several minutes according to Twitter.

Apparently this happened yesterday.

Jonathan Anderson posted this video on Twitter:



I wish there was more video of this!  I guess that’s one way to “freshen up” an older attraction.

My kids love Living With The Land and insist on riding it every trip. Hopefully, when Disney is messing around changing everything, they leave it alone!

Of course the Twitter comments were fantastic:

People did point out that it was likely and E-Stop(Emergency Stop) for some reason:

If they would decide to run it in reverse I have some new words for the first part of “Listen to the Land” that was in the early EPCOT days.

“Just make believe you’re a full grown plant, a full grown plant that’s going back to the size of an ant.”  I have more but I will spare you all. Yes I know I’m a dork.

What do you think? Would you like to ride the attraction backwards?

Disney has been a big part of my life for years--from family trips to WDW to growing up on Disney classics, TV, and movies. Prior to Pirates and Princesses I successfully ran social media and websites since 2010. I've also been a public speaker and presenter since 2007. I'm the co-host for the YouTube channel Clownfish TV as well as the podcast/ Youtube Pirates and Princesses (PNP) channel. Former contributor, online personality and acting social media manager at The Kingdom Insider (which we built from the ground up and ran from 1997-2019 --Thom didn't quit FYI) Pirates and Princesses was started by my husband and I several years ago. We loved Disney and wanted to honestly cover all aspects from pop-culture to the parks from a consumer focused stance. Living OUR happily ever after getting to do what we love with our two kids! Creating fun content and building new things. Certified art teacher, and mom. Opinions are all mine.
