    Wonders of Life use for the Food and Wine Festival

    Today I got a brochure about the Food and Wine Festival today, and while looking at it, I found this passage:

In addition, you will also find two seminars (sic) areas featuring daily complementary wine seminars and a location for the daily International Beers of the World seminars.
    The Odyssey will also continue to house the culinary demonstrations, but I thought that I would just pass this info along.

    They should open Cranium Command for it too.

    I am looking forward to the pavilion being used, though.

    Heh, I bet Cranium Command is a lot funnier after several glasses of wine or beer

    Re: Wonder of Life use for the Food and Wine Festival

    Does anyone else see this as odd? The theming doesn't make sense. At least in the old place, the space was pretty generic. 2007 Festival, which is pretty classy and sophisticated for a theme park, in a stale, old, pink and purple, screaming of 1980's, health/body exploration pavilion?

    Clearly the marketing managers won this fight. Let's move a nice, successful, movie-tie-in/characterless, signature event to a dump so we can make more room for characters that don't belong. Then we can use that opportunity to sell more merchandise.

    it's sick. more money, less product. yay wall st.!!

    ^^Well in preparation for the Festival, they're removing all the bolted down things still left inside the pavilion (the old exercise bikes and stuff that have been covered up for ages) and they already painted over the Body Wars mural.

    Yep, the entire pavilion (minus the two attractions) is being gutted, and both the DNA Tower & Entrance Sign have been removed.

    Re: Wonder of Life use for the Food and Wine Festival

    Here is just a wild thought...
    The Sign is gone.
    The place is totally being remodelled.
    Im thinking after the food & wine festival, disney is going to do something drastic to the pavillion.
    Maybe they finally got a new sponsor?
    Disney must be up to something if they are taking down the sign, and gutting the place BUT still leaving the attractions...
    hmmm...
    ADD ME.[:


    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.

    I have been told by reliable sources in Epcot that Cranium Command and Body Wars are still on the schedule to open this Christmas season and all the remodeling is just for food and wine. So I doubt there are big things coming soon, maybe after the new year though...

    Unfortunately, after the F&W festival, the pavilion is handed over to convention space (ala Odyssey & World Showplace).

    Thanks yoyo. Looks like we'll be there for the festival. It is one of my husband's favorite times to go. We drink way too much wine and eat way to much , but it is all good.

    My goal one day is to drink too much wine at the Food and Wine Festival.

    Oh well, guess I'll have to look forward to drinking around the world instead.

    Sorry pal, "Convention Space" is not an area of the company that anything can be handed over to.

    I suppose you mean Event Services or Special Events... but they also don't have the final say on "convention space." That's park management, and now, WDI.

    Being used as convention space isn't the same as permanently given to someone.
