    Epcot Attraction Question

    I remember there being an attraction in the Future World section of Epcot called "The Human Body". The idea of the attraction was that someone got a splinter and a medical crew (led by Tim Matheson) shrunk down to a microscopic size to get the splinter out (not really sure about that last part). They end up getting ****ed into the lungs and travel to other parts of the body.

    Does this sound familiar, and if so, is it still an attraction in Epcot? I've tried looking at the Disney website, but they don't describe the attractions within the different Epcot buildings. My son saw a video of this ride from the last time my wife and I went and keeps asking to go on it.

    Re: Epcot Attraction Question

    Sounds like you're talking about Body Wars to me. I don't ever remember the attraction being called The Human Body.

    Anyway, the attraction is in the Wonders of Life pavilion at Epcot, which is still there. However, the attraction (and for the most part the pavilion) hasn't been open for several years (thinking maybe 08 or 07 was the last time it was functioning) and all practical indicators would probably say this ride is done for and won't be coming back anytime soon. I'd probably look for this one to go the way of Horizons after it just sat there for a few years not doing anything.

    The pavilion is occasionally open during events like Flower & Garden, but none of the attractions inside are ever on line.

    That's right! It's called Body Wars. That's a shame, because after meeting Woody and Mickey Mouse, that's all my son can talk about. I'll keep an eye out, maybe we'll get lucky. Thanks for the reply.

    Re: Epcot Attraction Question

    The pavilion itself was open during the International Flower and Garden Festival this year. However, it was used only as additional flower-and-garden-related exhibits. Since I was only there for two days, I opted to use my time in Epcot elsewhere and did not go in. From what I've seen/heard, just about everything has been stripped out of the pavilion, and the Body Wars mural and entrance queue has been painted over and walled up. Quite unfortunate, really...

    Re: Epcot Attraction Question

    I believe the last time it was in operation was December 2006, where the pavilion was generally open briefly. The pavilion has not been open in general since then - only for special events and then only for the purposes of the event. As said none of the attractions have been in operation.

    Interestingly, the signage for Body Wars was lit during the F&W for 2007 and 2008, and I think it was even updated slightly in 2008 - but it was gone last year.

    Re: Epcot Attraction Question

    I visited the pavilion the last year it was open. Took lots of great shots, but it was virtually empty. Guess no one cared it was closing down for good.

    The one thing I remember most about Body Wars was how they used the same exact commet sequence from Star Tours, only they tinted the crystals red instead of blue.

    That's a shame because my son (and my wife) were really looking forward to it.

    Talking Re: Epcot Attraction Question

    I asked a cast member friend that works in Epcot during my last trip and she said that there are no plans for the former Wonders Of Life pavilion. It is just being used as meeting space for group events.
