Instead of investigating a splinter, you’ll be fighting a virus of some sort.

WALT DISNEY WORLD, FL — Finally, some good Covid-related news!

No, there’s no vaccine yet. Yes, people are still panicking. But we’ll get a really cool Disney ride back!

Body Wars is coming back to Epcot!

Not sure how this will work with the Epcot 2.0 plans

The Star Tours-esque motion simulator ride used to “miniaturize” guests to be injected into a body to observe its functioning. Fun Fact: it was Michael Eisner’s body!

Things of course went horribly wrong when the body you’d entered ate a cream-cheese pretzel. Let’s just say the process of being expelled from Eisner wasn’t pleasant to experience (he’s lactose-intolerant). At least he had a very nice bathroom.

Details of the reopened ride are scarce, but word is that you’ll be sent in to fight a virus. And this time it won’t be Michael Eisner you enter, but any random guest that shows up at the Epcot gates with a fever higher than 101 degrees.

Did you know it was Eisner? Let us know in the comments below!
