It would seem that one of Epcot’s longest-standing attractions is getting even more love this year with the addition of Merry and Bright Nights! Following on from changes to scenes earlier in the year, the team at Epcot are taking things further and have given the attraction a full holiday overlay!

If you’ve ever been lucky enough to ride the attraction during the evening, you will know that it feels like a totally different experience. With the addition of twinkling holiday lights sprinkled throughout the entire attraction, it becomes even more of a great nighttime experience.

Not only that, but Disney has also added other holiday surprises such as stockings, snowmen, and more!

It’s worth keeping in mind that the holiday overlay only applies to the greenhouses within the attraction, the rest of the experience remains the same.

Something to keep in mind, the clue is in the name, Merry and Bright Nights at Living with the Land is only available as part of the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays. The Festival starts on November 29th and runs until December 30th.

All of this means that Living with the Land is open until park close every day instead of the usual closing time of 7 p.m.

Despite all of the construction work happening around the park, it is great that Disney are still making an effort to provide something new to guests on an ongoing basis.
