The Wonders of Life, closed since Janaury 2006, is now reopened at Epcot for you to explore.
The attraction itself is a true Epcot “pavilion” offering many options under one comfortable climate controlled roof. The golden dome rises up from the berm between the Universe of Energy and Mission: SPACE in Future World East providing a relaxing respite from peak season crowds.
Hanging from the roof of the massive dome, a large colorful mobile spins continuously giving the area a unique kinetic energy. The Wonders of Life was once the most popular attraction at Epcot with wait times to enter the building itself.
Body Wars is located toward to rear of the dome and was once Epcot’s most thrilling attraction with 4 hours waits that encircled the entire dome walkways. During this breif reopening, you can probably expect to walk on to this piece of history. It’s still a fun ride based on the Star Tours simulator technology.
Cranium Command is a fanciful audio animatronic show that is full of Epcot nostalgia.
Finally, be sure to check out some of the lesser-known parts of the Wonders of Life. Goofy About Health is a fun presentation featuring some classic Goofy animated shorts and the Sensory Funhouse has activites worth exploring. There is also a small Kidcot area added to the pavilion where kids can paint part of a large banner to be displayed in the pavilion.
Wonders of Life may not be on the park map, but it is open and is worth a look.
