Nature-Inspired Design


Discover the wonder of nature-inspired design as you glide through land, sea and air at Epcot. This 3-hour backstage tour allows you to experience the symbiotic relationship between nature and the nature-inspired designs incorporated into Epcot pavilions and attractions. Glide over California on Soarin', tour the greenhouses at The Land pavilion, explore The Seas with Nemo & Friends and visit Life Support scientists to learn how technology helps us maintain a better balance with nature. 

After completing a required product overview and training, you will be equipped with a helmet and a Segway Personal Transporter X-2 to experience this unique off-road tour. Epcot Cast Member scientists share how their work environments are inspired by nature's own design and how they use evolving technologies to maintain a balance with the world around them. After experiencing "air, land and sea" you will have the opportunity to ride your Segway X-2 in a designated off-road backstage area at Epcot.
