    Wonders of Life

    Hi, I will be travelling to WDW from 2-28 to 3-5, and will be at WDW on 3-1 through 3-4 of 2009. I haven't kept up with what has gone on, but remember the WOL pavillion was closed when I went towards the end of March 2007. Really want to see Cranium Command. Will it be opened, or has something else gone in to this spot? I can't seem to find anything except it is mostly closed except for certain parts of the year, and some of it has been removed. Just wondering.

    Thanks

    It's closed and a wall is up around it at the moment. Sometimes the spot is used to hold special events.

    I really miss it. I hope they revamp it and bring it back, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Yep, its been closed for years now, I think they might have only opened it once during the last five years for actual guests wanting to do attractions.

    Unfortunately I think the WOL pavilion as we all used to know it is probably gone for good.

    Thanks. That is such a shame about WOL...as a somewhat "motion sickness sufferer", it was good that they had the various activities inside then the two shows. I don't miss not getting to go on Body Wars though! LOL! No Test Track, Mission: Space, or Soarin' for me.

    And one more question. I know that the Energy pavillion is going to be closed while I am there. Is it just closed, or are they working on it? What's going on? While it seemed a little dated, I liked the video with Ellen DeGeneres then the ride. I hope it doesn't get Disney/cartoon-oriented like Living Seas was. I don't have anything against having some Disney-themed rides, but it's nice to have some more "mature" themed stuff like Horizons and World of Motion were.

    Yeah......its a shame. They closed it permanantly due to the lack of a sponser. The pavillion itself was open during the food and wine festival.....i took a few pictures if anyone would like me to send them :-)

    To my knowledge the stuff going on at the UOE pavilion is just refurb type stuff, cleaning up and all. I haven't heard about any drastic changes happening to Energy.

    Too bad Energy is going to be closed in March.
