Carousel of Progress

[Disney Vacation Planner]

At A Glance One of the classic attractions, originally built for the 1964 World's Fair in New York. Now unfortunately running on seasonal opening (borrowed time) while Disney decide what to do with it, and as a result operating very limited hours.


The Carousel of Progress first aired at the New York's 1964 - 1965 World's Fair, and was moved to Walt Disney World in 1975.

It is a 20 minute show starring a "typical" American family (if an audio-animatronic family could ever be considered normal), and demonstrates how improvements have come about to everyday life through the use of Electricity.

Guests travel through the ride on a giant slow moving carousel.

The Carousel of Progress has been updated with a new final scene which shows what the future might be like, where an elderly woman plays a Virtual Reality game, and kitchen appliances talk.

Though seemingly constantly under the threat of imminent closure, the Carousel still remains open, though only seasonally when bigger crowds are expected at The Magic Kingdom, and even then very much operating on a restricted schedule, from 11:00 until 17:00.

This is a real shame, because while it's definitely a dated attraction it's still one of the original attractions that Walt had a hand in.
