Body Wars- it seemed dated long before even Star Tours... and ST kept its appeal only ...
Re: Wonders of Life
You make a good point. IMO, Wonders of Life was dated in 1995. It needed updating in the mid-90s, and they still even had a sponsor...what was holding them back? I wonder if Metlife ended their sponsorship because Disney didn't do anything to try to update WoL?

Traffic was so low to the place because it wasn't worth visiting. Disney did nothing to try to keep it interesting or innovative/updated, even when it had a sponsor!! Be they good or bad, just about everything got more updates than this pavilion. The whole appearance was dated and needed new paint inside when it was 5 years old, those colors screamed 1980s. I still don't think the "no sponsor" excuse works with Wonders of Life. That hasn't stopped The Land, Energy, or The Seas. The lack of quality attractions and location killed it. If there had been decent drawing attractions in 2001, people would have found it, and location wouldn't have been an issue. I never thought of how they had the sponsorship money coming in but never used it to better the pavilion in the 1990s.
I know The Making of Me has been replaced...they use that theater for a film about wine. I always thought that was a stupid show.

Re: Wonders of Life
it was... i think it needs a major E-ticket thrill ride... that would allow traffic back there again...!
