    Nice photos Figment and Eeyore... but question - aren't those the same signs they had up last year and put up to help with the extra amount of holiday visitors? (I can't find a photo, but my camera broke last December... but I think jimmybop should have a picture that we could use to compare.)

    Anyway... how was Cranium Command? I've only been able to see it once but FELL IN LOVE WITH IT!!!!!

    I really liked the cheesy 80's goodness of Cranium Command, I even snapped some photos! I should probably get my trip report up today, I think I will do that now. LOL

    i forgot how much fun cranium command was. it's a shame really because they have the makings of a great pavilion it just needs some updating. even if everything didn't work it really just needs some work and it could be a great pavilion promoting healthy eating and excersize. especially with the couch potatoe generation. There are all sorts of possibilities for this pavilion. disney spent their own funds on living seas and it's very popular, they could do the same thing with this pavilion with the help of the fab five and not pixar this time.

    Wonderful pictures. I especially like the tag with the WW3 Barge.

    Just to let you know, the Siemens label is shown on the Earth Globe as well as SSE.

    Any good business knows that success has to do with three things, location, location, and location. Wonders of Life has a CRAPPY location.

    The building is obscured, the sign is hard to read, and it is a walk to get there. I think that the theme of the body and health is a great topic for wonderful interactions, but the poor location really limits it.

    Cranium Command is a fun show that should be updated, as the rest of the pavillion. It is a treat to see. I know that it is dated, but still a fun show.

    anyone remember the two hour wait to ride body wars before test track opened??

    they let the trees grow in when the sponsorship ended... and its not that much of a hike to get there...

    "Where do you think you are, Disney World?! lol "

    Yes, they used temporary LED boards last year to help out the Guests. This new one however, is more of the permanent kind.

    Did they refill the water at the base of the Wonders of Life sign?
