Last week I posted the above picture and asked for guesses as to where it is located. While there were some great guesses, this one turned out to be a bit tough.
The picture can be found in one of the scenes from the Carousel of Progress. It’s in the 4th of July scene with the son and grandfather. The picture is on the wall behind them, so it’s definitely easy to miss when sitting in the audience. This classic ride is located in the Tomorrowland section of Magic Kingdom and the entrance can be seen when riding the PeopleMover.
The Carousel of Progress was originally designed by Walt Disney for Disneyland for a land called Edison Square, but when that didn’t work it was reimagined for the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair. The show was a success and so it then opened in Disneyland. In 1975 it opened in Magic Kingdom with a new theme song, “The Best Time of Your Life.” However, in 1994 the original theme song returned, “There’s a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow.”
This 20 minute ride takes guests on a tour of how technology has changed over the years. Thanks to the revolving theater, guests see four different generations of the same family and how technology has helped their lives. Plus, it’s a good place to sit for a bit if you’ve been on your feet all day or if you need to get out of the heat.
Thanks to everyone who played along this week! Another Where is it Wednesday picture will be up soon. Do you visit the Carousel of Progress when you’re in Magic Kingdom?
Thanks for reading!
I can’t believe I didn’t know this one, as many times as I have been on COP. It’s a must do for my family every trip. Oddly enough it’s one of my tween daughter’s favorite attractions. This was a tough one, but a really good one!
