We think it might be for the Food & Wine Festival in the fall

The loading area was modified at Journey Into Imagination this week

The loading area was pushed way back from the loading platform

We did Behind the Seeds tour yesterday and I specifically asked about the hops. The guide said they have no intention of using them. She made a comment about the joke about that greenhouse is how its so alcohol related (hops, agave, sugar cane, wheat and barley… all used in alcohol production.)
