No worries, why do you think that I mentioned that it's a snoozefest? I have gotten a few ZZZ's in there myself. Give me a quiet spot in the air conditioning at about 3:30pm and I am gone to LaLaLand.

me too -- I remember taking my daughter on it 20-some years ago (pre Bill & Ellen) and having to tell her the Apatosaurus was "just like Freddy" (the family pony at the time). Had to give the same speech to my grandson last March -- only change was the pony's name...

We must be a family of geeks because we all 4 love the ride (yes even the kids who are 9 and 11 and both are Bill Nye, Ellen and Jeopardy fans).

Love this ride and we all love Ellen in it with Bill and Alex T.
One of my favs!
And Ellen's wedding photos in people were gorgeous and I wanted to go back see her in this ride after seeing those!

I love this ride! Ellen + Bill Nye is a can't beat combination. My DW on the other hand I have to beg her to ride it with me.

Aww what's wrong with Ellen & Bill Nye? They're two of my favourites!!!

That being said, I grew up when Bill's show was still being made!

For those of us who appreciate it, I bet it will be gone soon so enjoy it while it lasts.

To you Universe of Energy haters-I bet it won't be there for so much longer so don't worry. lol. Just my thought.

Going to EPCOT Future World as a kid definitely shaped me in becoming a scientist. As an ovarian cancer researcher, I'm kinda saddened that Wonders of Life next door to Universe of Energy is closed.
I like Ellen and Bill, but it is a bit dated. I hope Disney doesn't make it into another Pixar attraction. Yes, I'm an EPCOT purist! Energy, you make the world go round!

Ellen was pretty hot in her wedding garb, and Portia looked like a ballerina dancer!

We loved Wonders of Life as well. The Cranium Comand show was one of my favorute attarctions (and the kids thought it was great even though they didn't have a clue who the SNL characters were). I guess we are EPCOT purists also--loved the learning mixed with fun the older attractions had.

I would just like to go on the record as saying that I love Ellen's Energy Adventure. I have no idea why, and recognize that it makes me a huge dork...but I don't care!

I like the ride as well. Ellen is great in it. It is a bit dated, but it still fun.

I have to say, I was JUST on the ride when I was there, and it was quite a slow moving ride, but I say they need to keep it around, it is different, AND it is an Epcot ride, not a Pixar one.
Also, everyone's mentioning Ellen/Bill Nye/Alex T./Jeopardy, but NOT A SINGLE PERSON mentioned Jamie Lee Curtis is in it! I was shocked that no one forewarned me, I would have been screaming like Halloween in there! LOL.
