Return to Disney World-June 22 to 29: Part Two

My daughter and niece at Disney Springs.

The EPCOT park is made of different pavilions and the world showcase of nations. The original intent of the pavilions was to show human progress and sciences. The picture above is from "The Land" pavilion which mostly tells the story of agriculture through the centuries. These pictures highlight a different area, one where plants are grown using various methods like hydroponics and aquaculture. This highlights the science aspects as well as supplying a good deal of the fish, fruits, and vegetables used at the restaurants located at Disney World. This enclosure is largely cutoff from the outside and is  climate controlled.        

Here is a couple of coffee trees growing inside the building. Yes, they're using sand as a rooting medium.
The "boats" that take visitors through the historical part and the growing enclosure.

At the center of the enclosure is a pretty big date palm tree.
Back outside on the World Showcase and this is the main building of the Italian Pavilion. Each nation on the World Showcase as numerous restaurants, places of interest showing off that country, and is generally staffed by people from that nation. 

Spaceship Earth seen through a structure at the Chinese Pavilion. I'm sorry, I have no idea what that structure is called.

The Mexican pavilion.
Me with Goofy. Got to admit, my affinity for this Disney god pretty much typifies my own personality.

Another interesting day in paradise. Is that a pagoda? Hmmm...

I've been to Epcot but not Disney. Nice pictures. I'm curious about the gate at the Chinese pavilion. That's a Torii Gate and it's Japanese, often found outside Shinto Temples.

Sounds like you had a nice and a little goofy trip!

Epot was my favorite of all the parks - and I liked the Land Pavilion the most. I remember riding through it on one of those boats.

It's been a few years - I want to go back.

The Bug: While I do not consider myself a people person, I did enjoy being around and watching all the humanity that was on parade.

Jeff: Yes, I had forgotten the Japanese pavilion is close to the Chinese one. I was confused. The trip was unbelievably awesome. Not sure whether it was because we hadn't been in four to five years, or from my heart issues last year.

Pixel: When you go back, be sure to do the "Behind the Seeds" tour at the Land Pavilion.

Marja: Disney World is divided up in four separate theme parks. EPCOT is the most "grown up" with attractions not necessarily just for kids. The World Showcase suffers from on small issue, it needs more countries. There are rumors that Brazil and India might be added but I would like to see an African nation as well.
