DDW Pic 465. Carousel of Progress - Panorama
Carousel of Progress - Panorama
The Carousel of Progress is one of my favorite Magic Kingdom attractions for many reasons. The primary one, however, is because this is an attraction that was developed and physically touched by Walt Disney himself. After debuting at the New York World's Fair in 1964, the attraction was moved to Disneyland, where it lived from 1967 to 1973. It was then transported to Walt Disney World and opened on January 15, 1975. This was the same day that Space Mountain debuted. I took this panorama of the final scene a few months ago, while giving a tour of the Magic Kingdom. You can see that it depicts a modern-day family celebrating Christmas. Each of the first three scenes features a different season and holiday, including Valentines Day, Independence Day, and Halloween. Although the Carousel of Progress isn't a "headliner," it is certainly worth seeing. There is almost never a wait, and it is truly a classic attraction.
