EPCOT celebrates its 40th anniversary on October 1, 2022 and these tours will be back as of October 2, 2022
Behind the Seeds is a one-hour walking tour that gives you an up-close and personal view of plants, insects and fish throughout EPCOT's four state-of-the-art greenhouses.

With EPCOT Seas Adventures – DiveQuest, you'll once again be able to dive into the 5.7-million-gallon saltwater tank and immerse yourself into the sea life surrounding the coral reef. This experience offers SCUBA-certified guests guaranteed calm seas, unlimited visibility, no rip currents and great marine life.

With the return of EPCOT Seas Adventures – Dolphins in Depth, you can meet bottlenose dolphins at The Seas and learn about their undersea behavior from the experts who work with them every day.

All three tours return on October 2 and are on sale now at DisneyWorld.com or the My Disney Experience app. Advance bookings are highly recommended. Please note the Behind the Seeds experience requires a valid theme park admission and reservation.
