With Walt Disney World Resort in the heart of Central Florida, storms are expected… especially in the summer months. With a recent storm producing excessive rain, EPCOT’s The Land Pavilion couldn’t seem to keep the water out.

We previously shared videos capturing a massive storm causing Guests to scream on Kilimanjaro Safaris at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, along with evacuations from Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover at Magic Kingdom Park.

Those videos were taken on August 2, 2022, the same day it looks like EPCOT’s The Land Pavilion in the World Discovery neighborhood couldn’t seem to keep the heavy rains from coming inside.

On August 2, @DiscMan2000 posted two photos inside The Land Pavilion at EPCOT, noting, “Looks like some serious water damage at The Land pavilion. Water still dripping from the ceiling.”

Following the photos shared, @thetonyman69 adds a brief video stating, “Saw this a few weeks ago. Water ended up somehow breaking the right hand automatic door.”

The Land Pavilion at EPCOT is typically a perfect haven when the rain sets in. Inside the Pavilion, Guests can experience three attractions including the popular hang-gliding attraction, Soarin’ Around the World, the quiet fan-favorite Living With the Land boat ride, as well as a theater attraction called Awesome Planet.

If attractions aren’t what you are looking for, it’s also a great place to grab a bite to eat at Sunshine Seasons, a quick-service restaurant.

But unfortunately, for these Disney Park Guests, the storm was so heavy that the theme park’s Land Pavilion seemed to have suffered serious water damage.

We’re sure, as usual, Disney was quick to correct the issues and likely is working to prevent future leaks from Florida’s occasional torrential downpours in the future.
