    Wonders of Life Pavillion Today

    Hey everyone. I was just wondering if anyone that has gone to The Food&Wine festival this year, has gone into the Wonders of Life Pavillion aka. "The Festival Center". And if you did then share your opinions about it and, if you have any, show a few pictures for the people that can't get down to Disney World to see Wonders of Life. I hope that all wasn't too confusing, I just want to hear about the pavillion so bad. haha.

    I took lots of shots of WOL during it's last year in operation, a few years ago. Haven't gone back since to see anything else in there, and this past trip I didn't get to Epcot early enough in the day to be able to do any touring. Arrived at 9pm, and it just started raining.

    I miss Wonder's of Life...
    I hope we never lose sight of one thing,
    that it was all started by a mouse.

    I think I miss the BGM most from there, more so than the rides. Then again, I've always been a Ray Lynch fan.

    Yesterland has a few articles about the erasing of the pavilion, as Warner Weiss (the author and "owner of Yesterland") visits the festival every year.

    I never got to see the pavilion but it's sad to watch something slip until it disappears.

    It breaks my heart to go to epcot and have a vacant Wonders of Life pavilion! We sure had fun there back in 1994. Will they do anything with it now?

    I have pictures taken a few months ago of the WOL pavilion (inside and out) on another thread.

    The Body Wars sign was all painted over with just a flat white paint. You can no longer see the name of the ride or the inside body mural. The queue line is still there. The little show areas where they showcased The Making of Me and a few other stuff are still there, but were showing garden presentations, the name likewise gone from the building. Cranium Command was in a similar situation and a lot of the interactive stuff like the bikes are completely gone.
