Disney closes Epcot ride for upgrade - Orlando Business Journal:
Walt Disney World has closed the Living With the Land boat ride at Epcot for refurbishment of the backstage area.
In a statement, the theme park said it plans to reopen the ride this fall after the work is complete. The boat ride takes visitors through a mock-up of the evolution of the land. It has 40 animatronics and takes people through the Disney World greenhouse where more than 30 tons of fruits and vegetables are grown annually.
Unofficial Disney Web sites say the ride was closed Aug. 2 without notice.
