Mission Commander (Body Wars)

Who is Mission Commander?

The Mission Commander is a character in the now-closed Disney theme park attraction “Body Wars.” Body Wars was a motion simulator ride located in Epcot’s Wonders of Life Pavilion at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. The attraction allowed visitors to “shrink” down to a tiny size and take a journey through the human body.

The Mission Commander, played by actor Dakin Matthews, was a central character in the pre-show and storyline of the attraction. The character was portrayed as a knowledgeable and authoritative figure who guided visitors through the mission inside the human body. The mission involved traveling through the bloodstream and other biological systems to locate and help a white blood cell combat an infection.

While the Mission Commander’s role was primarily instructional and expository, the character added a sense of adventure and urgency to the experience. Visitors would embark on this scientific adventure with the Mission Commander as their guide, making the educational journey entertaining and engaging.
