    Wonders of Life Pavillion

    I swear I'm not meaning this to be sarcastic but... is anyone going to miss the Wonders of Life Pavillion? In reading a few other random threads where it's mentioned, it seems not many folks are upset about it's closing. Can anyone say they have a fond memory of something in it?
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    About the only things I'll miss are the Body Wars and maybe the opening cartoon of Cranium Command. I didn't really hang out there a lot.

    I'll miss it. I didn't get to spend as much time as I wanted in there, but I enjoyed my time there. However given my educational and career background, I guess that isn't unusual.

    I liked Cranium Command but Body Wars was terrible, all i can remember about that ride is having my eyes closed and feeling sick.

    Being a big classic animation fan, I loved Goofy Over Health. I loved how it incorporated the Goofy "everyman" shorts into a fun multimedia production. It was also a great spot to sit and relax for a while.

    When WOL was running full blast in the 1990s, with all of it areas active, I thought it was really great. I really enjoyed the theming and experience of Body Wars. It really fit well into Future World. Cranium Command was a lot of fun.

    I don't think Disney really wants to give up on it--but they're certainly not going to do anything with it until they can find a corporate sponser to cough up some $$$$.

    I don't think it's closed yet; just open speratically and for very short time periods. In Birnbaums and the Unofficial guides I read this, so hopefully I'll get to see it one more time.
    My name is Emily and I am addicted to Walt Disney World. There, I said it and I'm proud.

    Louis Mongello, you are my hero!

    Moving to St. Petersburg, FL in November!!!
    I will be at WDW every two weeks then... I can't wait!

    Actually, it did close officially. However and quite surprisingly, it was recently announced it will be open for this holiday season.

    So the fate of this attraction still hangs in the balance.

    I will miss Cranium Command, that was good fun. Body Wars made me sick and I never saw The Making of Me - did anyone? It always seemed to be a bit of a strange thing to have in a theme park!

    Never saw Making of Me. I don't think I missed much.
