    Hello and welcome to The WDW Radio Show - Your Walt Disney World Information Station. I am your host, Lou Mongello, and this is show #227 for the week of June 19, 2011.

    In our continuing Epcot Retrospective series, were going to step back in time, and inside the gold dome of the Wonders of Life pavilion. Well explore its origins, original concepts that never came to be, and changes through the years. Well also take a closer look at not only the exhibits inside, but also its attractions, such as Body Wars, Cranium Command and the Making of Me. Its a look back in time, and forward, as we explore what may become of the Future World venue.

    Ill have some announcements, and then play some of your voicemails at the end of the show. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this week's episode of the WDW Radio Show

    A counter service called "Plain and Simple" sold fruits, vegetables and "wonder waffles". Too bad it's not still there even in an updated form. I believe it's now used just for special events at Food & Wine and Flower & Garden festivals

    You could tern the pavilion into a spots themed pavilion that focuses on physical activities and the importance of excessive. Also you could showcase sports from around the world and have space age futuristic sports using virtual reality and new technologies.

    Or you could tern it into a pavilion which is centered around eco friendly and green technology. It could display exhibits with eco friendly car ideas, ways of preserving the oceans, ways of using space to help preserve our planet, and other ways of producing energy that is clean and reliable. It could be a pavilion that brings all of the Futureworld Epcot together and show how these technologies can help preserve our fragile earth.

    Great retrospective on "Wonders of Life", Lou.

    You need to check out "Fantastic Voyage" the real inspiration for "Body Wars."

    Also, the "Body Wars" edit that you mentioned wasn't done because of any objectionable material or running length. The edit was done in the section of the ride that was isolated as causing the most "protein spills."

    After a couple of years of dealing with full motion platforms in Star Tours and Body Wars, one of the reasons that was pined down as what made people feel more "urpy" on Body Wars was the lack of an horizon line. The original Star Tours had multiple cues to the audience about which way was up, but Body Wars, not so much. The not too subtle edit in Body Wars addressed the worst area of the ride that was causing supposedly the worst problems.

    This nugget was told to me by a former Imagineer who was a show designer on EPCOT from '82-'94.
