    We are visiting Disney World in May and I know my husband, who is a science guy, would love to do the Behind the Seeds tour at Epcot. I'm wondering if my 7 year old son, who loves to do experiments with his dad, would also enjoy it?

    Greetings Karen and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    How wonderful that you're looking into unique Walt Disney World Resort experiences and tours!

    The Behind the Seeds Tour at Epcot is a great choice for people of all ages. Offering an in-depth look at the futuristic side of agriculture including hydroponics, there are ample discovery and learning opportunities. Hands-on activities including holding giant fruits and vegetables as well as interesting crops from around the world with visits to the American alligators and fish farm are all included.

    I particularly enjoyed the room with all the bugs, they're under control of course, but we were led to a greater understanding of their purpose, in that of the good bugs eating the bad bugs. It was enjoyable to see the guide distribute sealed bags with good bugs to volunteers who would then have the opportunity to release them into the greenhouse to eat the bad bugs. The children found that quite entertaining.

    May I suggest wearing comfortable shoes for this walking tour that takes approximately 1-hour. A resting spot is offered mid-way with a chance to drink water from a water cooler and relax on benches.
    Please plan on arriving approximately 15-minutes prior to your tour start time at The Tour desk near Soarin' in The Land Pavilion.

    Karen, I hope this information is useful to you and it would be our pleasure to assist you further with your Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning in the near future.
