Abstract (Document Summary)

Nor is Body Wars the only excellent thing in Metropolitan Life's new pavilion. Almost as fascinating is Cranium Command , a light- hearted look at the connection between brain and body, in which an "inexperienced brain pilot" - Buzzy, one of Disney's more likeable Audio-Animatronic robots - takes over the controls in the head of a 12-year-old boy for the day.

You sit up in the head with him and watch the world through two screens, representing the boy's eyes, following Bobby through a day of adolescent traumas, with Buzzy running things somewhat haphazardly and Hypothalamus (another Disney Animatronic character), right brain, left brain, adrenal gland, heart, lungs and stomach - all offering advice and making often-conflicting demands. A delight.

A one-day, one-park ticket, on which you can visit all the attractions and use all the rides in any one of the Magic Kingdom, Epcot or the Disney-MGM Studios Theme Park, costs $29 for adults, $23 for children 3 to 9.
