An internal job posting has revealed that the interior of the former Wonders of Life pavilion is about to get a complete makeover.
The job posting, titled “Interior Designer – EC Wonder of Life,” is seeking candidates that have commercial design experience, primarily in the Retail or Hospitality sectors, and a minimum of 3 years of experience at Walt Disney Imagineering or another architecture or interior design firm. The candidate must also have an understanding of construction details, “particularly casework detailing,” according to the posting.
One of the main responsibilities of the job is the “design and production of a shop/restaurant or attraction” under the direction of a Senior or Principal Interior Designer.
Additional responsibilities of the job include the development of varied Interior Design project work at all stages of assigned projects from concept, feasibility or schematic design, through the preparation of construction documentation in accordance with established departmental and divisional quality standards. The candidate will also support the implementation of the design intent as a member of the project design team, and ensure that the interior design intent is achieved by successfully integrating design with allied disciplines, such as architecture, lighting, graphics, structural engineering, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing.
Based on this, it appears that, after the roof work is completed at Wonders of Life, the interior of the pavilion will be getting much more than just a refresh of what is already present. Whether this is for a new attraction, shop, and/or restaurant, or simply a revamped and custom-designed Festival Center, is yet to be revealed.
