Dated Disney ride that's now gone
4 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's sad to see so many attractions at Walt Disney World be discarded and replaced, but this one was unfortunately dated in terms of special effects. However, it was a novel premise, perfect for Epcot, and in many ways a counterpoint to MGM's Star Tours ride based on "Star Wars." A pre-"Leaving Las Vegas" Elisabeth Shue appears in the film/ride, well cast as an explorer of the human body, though fewer would recognize her today. The ride was featured in the now-gutted Wonders of Life pavilion at Disney's Epcot in Orlando, which also housed "The Making of Me" film starring Martin Short and "Cranium Command." For its day it was very technologically advanced and fun.
