    Chiquita Sponsorship

    “I’m Chiquita Banana And I’m Here To Sponsor” | WDW News Today

    Long article, one little piece got my attention:
    As part of the agreement, Chiquita will serve as the sponsor of both the “Crush ‘n’ Gusher” at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, themed around a tropical fruit processing center, and the “Living with the Land” attraction at Epcot, where Chiquita will join forces with Disney to help teach Guests about nutrition.

    1) New sponsorship of just a single attraction and not a whole pavilion is interesting.

    2) Do I see another change to Living With the Land in our future?

    I hope they do not change Living with the Land.

    The only thing that made me curious was the fact that it says they will be partnering to educate about proper nutrition... by way of Living with the Land. Thing is, that's not entirely the theme of the attraction today. Just things that make you go hmmmm.

    The older version of the ride (when CMs did the spiel) talked more nutrition than the current auto spiel. Not thrilled about a sponsor budging in on it but will have to wait and see what the end up doing.
