    I would like to know if I can use my ECV on the Behind the Seeds tour in Epcot. We will be there the 2nd week of May.

    Aloe-lujah, Sharon!  I'm so excited that you are considering booking the Behind the Seeds tour at Epcot!   I'm no green thumb myself, but this tour is one of those things I’d see at Epcot every time we went on Living With the Land.  My son and I finally got to experience it in 2017, and I'm happy we did! 

    First off,  this is probably the most affordable of all the tours Walt Disney World offers- current pricing is $25 per person ($20 for children 3-9), and if you happen to be a Disney Chase Visa member, Annual Passholder, or Disney Vacation Club member, there is a 15% discount.  Tours groups are kept small, usually less than ten people, which gives you a chance to interact with the cast members who are members of the Epcot Science Team. You'll probably be given a lesson on natural pest control using ladybugs. We also got to taste cucumbers grown on site hydroponically.   You may want to call 407-WDW-TOUR if you'd like to book it before you go on your trip.

    Although this is a one-hour walking tour, it is completely accessible, and you are welcome to remain on your ECV the entire time.  There are some sharp turns in the fish tank area that may be challenging, but not impossible.  One of my son's favorite parts of the tour was looking for all the Hidden Mickeys- there are several very clever ones.  He loved seeing the Nine Pound Lemon, too (imagine how much lemonade that sucker would make)!

    Please lettuce know if you have any more questions, Sharon!  Have a fantastic trip!
