Located in Future World East, The Wonders of Life pavilion was the last pavilion to be added to Future World (with the exception of Mission: SPACE after the Horizons demolition). It featured shows, attractions, and exhibits that focused on health, medicine, healthy eating and the human body.
On February 21, 2019, it was announced that the Wonders of Life pavilion would finally become a pavilion dedicated to “play.” Coming out of COVID, many of the plans for EPCOT’s renewal were shelved. While no official announcement about Play! Pavilion was ever made, all references to the pavilion as “coming soon” were removed from maps, websites, etc. in early 2023. Shortly thereafter, statements were made by Bob Iger to imply no further work was planned for EPCOT after the “expansion” effort was complete (hub changes), effectively returning the Wonders of Life pavilion to an abandoned state.
