We chose Behind the Seeds tour at the Land Pavilion in EPCOT for our most recent Disney tour and it was AMAZING! I should mention that our family loves to garden, but even if you lack a green thumb, this backstage tour is really interesting. Bonus: It’s also one of the more budget-friendly backstage tour options (and if you’re a Disney Visa card holder, you get a discount!). Today, I’m going to walk you through a few photo tips/ideas that will help you build a photo story of your Behind the Seeds tour!
This was my first time on the tour, and although I’ve floated through the Living with the Land attraction a few times, I still didn’t know what to expect. Our tour guide was fantastic, answered all of our questions and gave us plenty of time to look around. Photo Tip #1: Get a picture of your guide talking to the group (or more specifically the part of the tour group that came with you). I took a couple of our guide talking to our group, but what I loved most about this one is the background – the dome is so cool and definitely reminds me of EPCOT.
One of my favorite parts of the tour were the huge (and I mean HUGE) lemons from the lemon tree. They were beautiful and we got to hold one in our hands. The kids (well, and adults too) were seriously impressed! Photo Tip #2: Take a photo of the setting. For me, this was my favorite setting (look at that perfectly raked sand):
Photo Tip #3: Take a few steps back and get an even bigger setting picture. The tour guide did not mind at all that I stayed back a ways to take a few photos. While you’re not allowed to touch the plants, you can use them to frame your picture like this:
Photo Tip #4: Finally, up close detail shots like the one below help tell your story even more. I waited until the littlest in our group was holding the lemon because I wanted to really show off how huge it looked!
There you go! Not too many things to get you sidetracked during your tour…after all you’ll definitely want to ENJOY it! Side note: it’s VERY hot during the tour and although they provide water at a couple of different stations, you’ll want to make sure you dress appropriately.
