  • News "Selective demolition" for Wonders of Life pavilion

    As reported on Stitch Kingdom today, "Walt Disney Imagineering filed a notice of commencement

    It can mean a full bulldoze or partial. Anyone think this means there might be a big announcement by the time of the anniversary?

    Maybe they will announce they are installing benches inside.

      haha true, it could all just be that simple! Perhaps tearing out Body Wars to make more festival space? Though I would love to see the inside gutted and a new ride etc brought to that end of the park. Am I getting my hopes up? hehe

        Probably the truth.

        But Body Wars was already gutted by Imagineering. So I really doubt there is anything left to Demo in there.

        I would hope... but after the benches announcement, I have lost hope.

          Great! This means they'll use the space for a new E-ticket and couldn't possibly mean that they're just going to remove old attraction infrastructure with absolutely no intention of replacing it with anything.

          Hahaha, well done sir.
          I knew if this business was ever to get anywhere, if this business was ever to grow, it could never do it by having to answer to someone unsympathetic to its possibilities, by having to answer to someone with only one thought or interest, namely profits. For my idea of how to make profits has differed greatly from those who generally control businesses such as ours. I have blind faith in the policy that quality, tempered with good judgment and showmanship, will win against all odds.

            Yay! More vacant space! This is what we pay for each year with the price increases!

              Maybe they are taking the benches out of the old Cranium Command and Making of Me theaters to be used for Fantasmic!

              Edit: Oh, Anicomical Players and Goofy About Health also had some sweet benches. Maybe management realized that they had a veritable bench goldmine over there.

                Bench gold mine. That would be flipping hilarious If that is really where the benches came from!

                  Finally. At least they can get rid of that damn eye sore. I never cared much for that pavilion and I think having open space is much prettier than having that ugly thing sit there and rot away.

                    It is a selective demolition permit so it honestly might be removal of benches.

                      Imagine if they were using Body Wars to show a 30th Anniv retrospective movie on Epcot, complete with working simulators!

                        My guess is that the three theaters in the center of the space are being removed to open up the floor.

                          That is my guess as well. Disney has basically slated it as event space unless they can somehow find a sponsor. Removing those theaters would not only improve astethics (get rid of the carnival theme) but open it for more event space. Painting over the Body Wars mural, removing the Cranium Command sign, and getting rid of those theaters would definitely make it feel like a less temporary set up for Food and Wine festival.

                            The Wonders of Live pavilion was my favorite. Cranium Command and Body Wars were my two favorite WDW attractions (of course I was 11 the last time I was at WDW) but I do remember both very well.

                                I would have to agree, that this is probably just to open up this convention/meeting/event space even more.

                                  thats why i don't go to WDW anymore. I used to go every year but the last time i went i was disappointed with seeing so much of the resorts infrastructure rotting away with empty buildings and bad maintenance. Pleasure Island walled up and lifeless and little to do in DHS that kept me entertained. I actually spent more time in DAK then the other three parks and that is because i love animals

                                  I ended up spending two and a half days of the seven days i had planned for WDW and instead changed my plans spent more time at universal, Sea World and Busch Gardens and other local attractions

                                    They will probably be converting the space to another princess meet and greet. Got to milk that Disney brand for all its worth...

                                      All the situation wit WOL is really depressing, but I rather see it demolished that having the rotten corpse of what it was.


                                      I do miss a lot WOL, but faking that it never existed and having the locked attractions getting years of dust, rust and neglet is more hearthbreaking to me, just take the building down and build something wort of a park.

                                      But please no more giant shopping mall generic stuff, I can go in a car to a nearby mall and in less than 15 minutes I'm in the mall and get into a store and buy a Mickey Mouse piyamas is that easily, I'm not going to make a trip tp another country and waste a lot of money only to get some generic Mickey Mouse pijamas that only says "Disney parks" in the label or having a picture wit Snow White, and no rides to enjoy.
