The fan-favorite EPCOT ride, Living with the Land, experienced prolonged downtime as it was unexpectedly closed for one full week for reasons unknown.

The good news is that this morning, when EPCOT opened to the public, Living with the Land did as well! The bad news is that the ride was only open for about 20 minutes before it was listed as temporarily unavailable once again.

EPCOT opened to Guests at 11 a.m., to which Living with the Land also did. This surprised many as it was unexpectedly closed for one full week due to reasons unknown. However, at approximately 11:20 a.m., Living with the Land is once again experiencing downtime as it was listed as temporarily interrupted.

Per WDW Stats on Twitter:

Living with the Land has been temporarily interrupted. On average, an interruption takes 280 minutes. http://wdwst.at/detail/80010161 #Epcot #WDW #WaltDisneyWorld #DisneyWorld

This is also reflected on the My Disney Experience app as seen in the screenshot below, taken at approximately 11:30 a.m.

We also recently reported that the attraction’s FastPass signage has disappeared during the unexpected closure, which you can read more about here.

At this time we are unsure of what is causing this prolonged closure (and re-closure), but Inside the Magic will continue to update you as we get information.
