The famous EPCOT Behind the Seeds tour is back starting Oct. 2, 2022. Scroll on for details.

When Walt Disney World reopened following its brief closure for COVID-19 in 2020, many of its beloved experiences, like character meet-and-greets and backstage tours, were put on pause. Slowly, Disney has been bringing back some of these special experiences. The latest to get the greenlight? The beloved (and cheap!) EPCOT Behind the Seeds tour.

The EPCOT Behind the Seeds tour officially returns Oct. 2, 2022, with ticket sales starting on Aug. 16, 2022.

What Is the EPCOT Behind the Seeds Tour?

EPCOT’s Behind the Seeds tour gives guests a unique opportunity to tour The Land Pavilion on foot. Guests can regularly tour the pavilion by boat on Living with the Land, but this attraction doesn’t offer the exclusive encounters of the special tour.

During the Behind the Seeds tour, guests encounter the fish farm and four greenhouses, learning about everything from hydroponics to fish farming. Guests even get to check out the massive fruits and vegetables that EPCOT is famous for growing.

How Much Does Behind the Seeds Tour Cost?

Behind the Seeds costs $35 per person, plus tax. This was the cost of the tour before the COVID-19 closure; Disney has not yet clarified if the cost will go up upon reopening.

You will also need theme park admission and an EPCOT Park Pass Reservation for the day of your scheduled tour.

How Long Is Behind the Seeds?

The EPCOT Behind the Seeds tour lasts approximately 1 hour, so it doesn’t cut in much to your day at EPCOT. On some days, you might stand in line longer to ride Living with the Land.

Keep in mind that this is a walking tour, so you will be on your feet for a full hour.

How Old Do You Have to Be for Behind the Seeds?

Disney says that Behind the Seeds is appropriate for preschoolers, kids, tweens, teens, and adults.

When he's not drinking around the world at EPCOT or gobbling down Mickey Waffles for breakfast, he can usually be found with his partner hiking and kayaking the great outdoors, putting off writing his novel by playing Nintendo Switch, or telling his dogs Goomba and Blooper that they're the best boys in the world ad nauseam (because they are).
