I'm surprised that attendance would be that poor in Future World that they need to make Wonders a seasonal attraction.  Are people going to Mission Space and then leaving the park?  

I thought I saw an article recently that listed the estimated attendance figures in 2002 for all theme parks, either in N. Amer or the world, and Epcot was #2.  So I don't get it.  Is this an attendance issue or just simply a way to save money?  I haven't been in Wonders lately, is the attraction outdated?

Yoo Hoo, Disney EchoEars!

This thread has now been moved out of the Rumors forum to the WDW forum, because it is true.

Disney has announced that started January 5, 2003, Epcot's sponsorless Wonders of Life pavillion will only be open seasonally. That pavillion includes the Body Wars simulator ride. Disney spokeswoman Rena Langley said the 33 employees at Wonders of Life are being moved to other jobs.

Read the full details here, including news about Disney cutting rates at its new Pop Century Resort and its All-Star Resorts to $55 a night (for travel from Jan. 1 through Feb. 11 but must be booked by Dec. 29th), and the Courtyard resort at Downtown Disney matching that rate as it is in the process of being converted to a Holiday Inn (It had a $59 special in place but dropped it to $55 on Wednesday when the hotel learned of Disney's deal).
