The Land

The Land is located in Future World of WDW Epcot. The mission for this building to show human civilization’s interaction with the Earth through travel and agriculture.  As you walk up to the building make sure you stop to look at the beautiful tile mosaic on either side of the entrance. This is a perfect piece of modern art that will just give you a glimpse of what is in store for you once you enter the land. AS you enter the building you will notice that it is decorated in bright lush colors in a very contemporary feel. You will be entering the Land on the second floor of the building. Walk left or right, either way, you will make your way to the Garden Grill restaurant. Currently, the Garden Grill is the only attraction on this level.

Garden Grill

 

The Garden Grill Restaurant is an especially unique dining experience at Epcot. This slow-moving restaurant takes you throughout the different agricultural regions as seen in Living with the Land the attraction below.  Listen to the beautiful music giving you a feeling that you are eating outside. The Garden Grill is served family-style breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

At Breakfast make sure you save room for Chip’s Sticky Bun Bake. You will need extra napkins but it so worth it! During Lunch and Dinner, the menu is inspired by what is in season and harvested from Disney Greenhouses. If this dining experience wasn’t magical enough make sure you have your camera and autograph books ready as Chip, Dale, Mickey, and Pluto (characters are subject to change) come to your table to say hello in their best country farmer attire.  Due to the true uniqueness of this dining experience reservations are highly recommend and can be made 180 days in advance.
