The Making of Me is a 1989 film about conception and birth directed by Glenn Gordon Caron and starring Martin Short. The film was shown at the Wonders of Life pavilion at Epcot when the pavilion was open. As of 2007, the theater remains open during the International Food & Wine Festival; however, the film being shown is about food. As of 2008, Martin Short now stars in an unrelated short film called O Canada! in the Canada Pavilion.


Martin Short tells the story about how we are born, by explaining how his parents met during the course of their lives - at a high school dance, getting married, going on their honeymoon, and having their first child (him).

The film also explains the process of fertilization between sperm and eggs in an animated form, as well as the development of the fetus by using imagery of fetal development taken by Lennart Nielsen.


According to producers, the film was "...somewhat a departure for a Disney attraction". Given that birth and conception is a sensitive issue around families, an advisory sign was placed near the entrance of the theater, in order to advise parents to decide whether the film is suitable for them.
