    As filed HERE, WoL is to be partially gutted. This is being done in order to prepare for the Food and Wine Festival.

    I guess it's a bigger space than the old odesy restaurant or the special events pavilion. of course gutting it doesn't mean they cant reuse it as a new pavilion at a later date either.

    Oh, I'm excited to see what they do with it. Although I hope they don't move the food booths in there, I like walking the WS and trying the different foods.

    Best Case Scenario: After the F&W Festival, they take a giant bulldozer and demolish the entire pavilion, putting an entire new attraction in its place.

    Worst Case Scenario: After the F&W Festival, they hand the space over to conventions and the general public never enters that area of Epcot again.

    i would agree, except change the word attraction to pavilion. Future World needs less attractions, and more pavilions which include attractions.

    Well technically, Disney lists pavilions as attractions, so.......


    Pavilion, attraction... doesn't really bother me. So far, Disney has yet to replace one with the other (Horizons->MS, WoM->TT, UoE->EEE, Imagination pavilion->Imagination Institute, The Land & Seas both as pavilions, etc).

    Well considering you were hoping that this pavilion with multiple attractions be converted into a single one, the point is very puissant here.

    Re: Wonders of Life Gutting Confirmed

    important to note that this has been reported as a gutting ONLY of the open area in the front of the pavilion. The two rides were slated to stay at this time. This is to gut out all the displays that were in the foyer area. To open up the space for activities (such as F&W)

    I have it on pretty good authority (and I realize that means nothing coming from me, but, eh) that the WOL attractions are still scheduled to open for the Christmas. I hope this is true, because I've never gotten to see Body Wars or Cranium Command.

    i really liked the WoL pavilion. I remember being there when it opened when I was kid. But when I went two years ago it felt old and dated. I hope they get a sponsor and they re-do this pavilion. Epcot should keep the current theme of the pavilion but with newer rides.

    are they getting rid of Body Wars?

    I was just wondering, are they ever going to do something with that restaurant?
    And why did it close in the first place?

    WHAT I'VE LEARNED FROM MICECHAT...
    1. IF YOU APPRECIATE SOMETHING THAT ISN'T THE MAJORITY OPINION, YOU'RE NOT WANTED HERE.
    2. IF THERE'S CHIPPED PAINT IN THE QUEUE FOR A LINE, EXPECT SOMEONE TO WRITE OUT A BIG STORY BASHING IT. WOOHOO.
    3. IF YOU'RE UNDER THE AGE OF 24, YOU'RE AN 'EISNER BRAT.'
    4. PEOPLE WHO ARE DEEMED AS 'MODERATORS' AND OTHER ADMINISTRATION ARE MORE IMPORTANT DIETIES THAN JESUS CHRIST.
    5. YOU CAN EXCPECT TO BE BADLY REPPED IF YOU TRY AND MAKE A SERIOUS POINT.
    6. YOU ARENT TAKEN SERIOUS IF YOU'RE UNDER THE AGE OF 16.
    7. AS AN ADD-ON TO #6, YOU SHOULD BE TREATED AS A SUBORDINATEIF YOU ARE IN A THEME PARK WAITING 30 MINUTES IN LINE FOR A DRINK WHILE SOMEONE HAS TO RECOUNT PIZZAS.
    8. "Disney may not care to hear your comments, but we do." WTFFF??? THIS ISN'T A DISNEY FAN FORUM, IT'S A DISNETY BASHING SITE.
    9. CERTAIN PEOPLE OVER ANALYZE A SIMPLE THREAD AND CONSIDER IT TO BE A CONTRACT FULL OF LOOPHOLES THAT HE/SHE CAN GET AROUND.
    AND FINALLY...
    10. PROLONGED USE OF THIS SITE CAN CAUSE AN EXTREME HATE OF DISNEY AND ALL DISNEY RELATED THINGS.

    As far as I know, Cranium Command and Body Wars shall remain.


    Let me add that several more cameras are to be added to TT's queue. Possibly to aid with the wait times.

    Not to go off-topic, but what pavilion in FW used to be a multi-attraction pavilion that is no longer one?

    Universe of Energy - Different story, but it went from a single attraction to a single attraction.

    Mission: Space - As far as I remember, we went from single-attraction Horizons (possibly plus a post-show) to a single-attraction MS (again, with a post-show).

    Test Track - Again, single attraction WoM+postshow vs. single attraction TT+[likely worse] postshow

    The Seas - Multi-attraction Living Seas to multi-attraction The Seas with Nemo & friends

    The Land - Attractions have changed, but it remains a multi-attraction pavilion

    Imagination Institute - Again, the two attractions have changed over the years, but it still remains a multi-attraction pavilion

    Spaceship Earth - The story has been altered, but it has always been a single attraction and postshow

    Innoventions - I would call this a multi-mini-attraction pavilion

    So am I missing anything? The only pavilion I haven't listed for obvious reasons is WoL, which at last opening was still a multi-attraction pavilion.
