Wonders of Life


Wonders of Life is a pavilion at Epcot as part of Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. The pavilion is dedicated to health and body style attractions. Wonders of Life is located inside the gold dome between Mission: Space and Universe of Energy. The display that was part of Wonders of Life has closed; however, the pavilion still remains as a place for special events. Much of the exhibit has been removed leaving only part of it behind.

The idea of the structure was an original concept for the Epcot Center. To be built Disney used a corporate sponsor: Metlife. At the time two main attractions were built with the pavilion: Body Wars and Cranium Command. Body Wars was the first ride in Epcot. The pavilion was also home to a theater including the video The Making of Me. A restaurant and interactive attractions were also present all based around the concept of health and wellness. The exhibits were closed as of 2007, but the 100,000 square feet of space is often filled with temporary decorations especially around the Christmas season. Often corporate and private events are held in the hall. In 2007, the DNA helix that was 72 feet tall along with the sign was removed.
