It is a history lesson. The original post of the clip came from the Magic Blitz Podcast Twitter feed, and then the rest of DisTwitter jumped on it to have a bit of fun. I thought they might be shutting it down or removing it from the park. Updated would include a new finale scene and other general enhancements. *pushes nerd spectacles up nose* Actually, “Great Big…” is the original song. Also, VR has made a resurgence. Walt was very hands on with this, and if anyone wants to get a feel for what Walt was like, this is the place to go. In Edison Square, guests would be treated to a show which was supposed to be called "Harnessing the Lighting" hosted by an "electro-mechanical" man named "Wilbur K. Watt". I’d like to see more of the intervening years. Knowing how involved Walt was with it makes it special! Video surfaced yesterday of the Carousel of Progress having some minor issues as the animatronic main character of John had a minor seizure on stage. The Carousel of Progress, originally named The Carousel Theater of Progress was brought to the Disneyland Resort and remained there from 1967 to 1973 moving to Walt Disney World in 1975. I suppose it wouldn't be the first time a Disney park just tried to save money by adding a dance party in an unused space. pic.twitter.com/uQkROjUtY4.
The theater that it had been in at Disneyland became the location for "America Sings" (1…
You are not the center of the universe. John could make a quick reference to how his mom (in the 20s or 30s) didn’t have some of the cool stuff he did? Love the COP, a must when visiting WDW! That means we’ll be getting the TRON Lightcycle Power Run roller coaster attraction, set to open in time for the anniversary in 2021, and possibly even the Wreck-It Ralph attraction rumored to replace Stitch’s Great Escape in 2022 (which we may see announced this week during the D23 Expo 2019), before we see any updates to the beloved classic Carousel of Progress. Updating The Carousel of Progress...50 years later The Carousel of Progress is one of the oldest pieces of WDW, and one of Walt's all-time favorite attractions. Being stuck in the nineties is the least of its problems, in that when it came out for the ’64 World’s Fair there was roughly a 20 year gap between each scene.
I’m so glad to hear that it will be getting an update and not removed or IP nonsense added. It switched to “Now is the time…” when it moved to WDW, because the sponsor, GE (General Electric), wanted to sell TVs NOW, not tomorrow. Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress at the Magic Kingdom Slated for Updates Following Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary Last updated: April 7, 2020 There’s a great, big, beautiful tomorrow, shining at the end of every day! In the ultimate irony, some technologies in that final scene have come full circle, like virtual reality video games. They've been lonely, and maybe you'll be treated to an impromptu dance party. I think a great sigh of progress would be to fire Bob Iger and then how someone who actually shares Walt’s values, in other words, not someone who hates Christianity and glorifies homosexuality. Maybe they could restore it to the original 1964 script, after snipping out any references to General Electric.
Armchair Imagineer. Now John Progress (as he is known) is having a solo dance party inside the Carousel of Progress, and it's best attraction retheme I've ever seen. It helps us to imagine what it was like back then. But, isn’t that the point? ???? Oh, @DaveedDiggs would be proud. It has quite the history behind it and has gotten around before making its final destination.
That last scene does need an update. My heart skipped a beat with I first saw the headline. We realized that our son had not been on it, and didn’t understand the slightly silly tone when mommy and daddy sang “IT’S A GREAT BIG BEAUTIFUL TOMORROW!” at him. I was on the floor, laughing. It was entertaining to see, and not all that uncommon an event all things considered, but it took a life of its own when Disney Parks fans started adding music to it. Your email address will not be published. As much as I’d hate to lose 00s and 20s, perhaps we could do 50s, 80s, 00s, Future? Copyright © 2020 WDWNT, LLC.
;). While there is an update scheduled and in the works, sadly it is not scheduled for completion until Summer of 2023. I’m a bit skeptical of the refurb. I was so confused when the “future” portion I remembered from my childhood was almost exactly the the same when I went back 20 years later. It just needs some changes at the end to bring it up to date – and perhaps more scenes to show the advances from the 80’s until today. Walt Disney World hasn't reopened to the general public quite yet, that happens in a couple of days. It may also help younger people appreciate how far we’ve come as a society. The show would chronicle the evolution of electricity in the home, from the late 19th century to the present and beyond — showing how much electrical appliances, … My take on the Carousel of Progress Dance Party™?.

It has been an icon throughout the years and I make a point to visit it every time I am in the Magic Kingdom. We just rode this the other day. Plus it always confused me how it jumps from the 40s to the ‘future’ with nothing in between. So if you're one of the people visiting Walt Disney World when it reopens this weekend, take a minute to visit John and his family at the Carousel of Progress. I guess the oven could be the equivalent of a Siri or Alexa. Taking a modern kid on it now, they often think that the ‘future’ scene is set in the present as the tech is all now readily available. Look forward to seeing what the Imagineers have up their sleeves to improve the last couple of scenes. The purpose of the special day was, in part, a test run for Magic Kingdom reopening after months of being closed, and apparently, that was needed, as some of the attractions had some kinks to work out. Change to current technology AA figures, do away with the 1940s scene, bring back the 1960s “future” scene, followed by a new futuristic scene. I remember back in the 80’s the theme song was different, I liked the original, Now is the time. Finally! Agreed — can’t expect them to be *too* far-reaching, since the future is an ever-moving target, but maybe once-a-decade updates would be reasonable. There is a rumor of 50 additions to Walt DIsney World by the 50th Anniversary, and the enhancements to the Carousel of Progress are a candidate for one of those 50 additions. Bob Chapek’s “administration” is incapable of creating anything that isn’t tied to a franchise. And tomorrow’s just a refurb away. In the late 1950s, after Disneyland's initial success, Walt Disney planned to expand the Main Street, U.S.A. area with two districts: "International Street" and "Edison Square". When I went in the 90s, it was the future. The whole ride needs an update, no one remembers 1900 or 1920, and the only people who remember the 40s are in their 80s and there aren’t a lot of people in their 80s at Disney World.

and so on…………. In the grand scheme of things this is probably the best thing to happen to the Carousel of Progress, it isn't exactly the most popular attraction at Magic Kingdom, but now people are talking about it again, and for fans, that's a good thing. The mind boggles. Now I'm imagining a modern animatronic Daveed Diggs busting this out and I want to see it happen.

Good Lord. Epcot Stan. I’d love to see Disney … That’s great news…even if it is a wait. And tomorrow’s just a refurb away. A Distant Future. The animatronics could use some updates to look more realistic.
I still like to sing “Now is the time…” Maybe they will bring it back! They've never sat unused for so long. Only later, after I explained, did she realize I was quoting “The Wizard”, not talking about the ride itself.… Read more ». The attraction debuted at the New York World's Fair as Progressland on April 22, 1964. With all this talk about updates and refurbishments for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary, one can’t help but think of the classics who are in need of the most help. The Carousel of Progress was first created by WED Enterprises, the precursor to Walt Disney Imagineering, for the 1964 World's Fair. During its time in Disneyland, the carousel was sponsored by General Electric due to its success. They can update it all they want, just don’t remove it! Yes, the last act does need a tech update when TV’s and computers change but the rest of the ride is how it should be because it’s showing how the past was and how far we’ve come.
