The fan-favorite EPCOT ride, Living with the Land, has been in the news quite a lot lately as it experienced prolonged downtime as it was unexpectedly closed for nearly two weeks. Though we still do not know why Living with the Land was unexpectedly closed, the good news is that the ride is back up and running.

In case you aren’t familiar, the fan-favorite ride takes Guests ride through a tour in The Land pavilion. As they float past vegetation and other elements, there are small signs located in appropriate areas to help show the riders what is planted where. For example, in front of the fish tanks, signs appear along the waterway to describe exactly which fish are swimming around.

Well, while aboard Living With the Land, one Guest noticed a sign that read “Welcome Back. We’ve Missed You”.

I’ve missed you too, Living with the Land from WaltDisneyWorld

Reports have come in that this sign was installed once EPCOT reopened after the prolonged closure due to the ongoing pandemic. This is such a sweet addition to the ride as it shows Disney Imagineers and Cast Members really go the extra mile to show Guests their love and appreciation.
