Tips & Fun Facts
CoP can be a good place to visit when waiting for a fastpass time on one of the other Tomorrowland attractions.
Another 'escape the heat and crowds and take a time out' type attraction, especially at peak times. Wait times rarely exceed 10 minutes.
The 'Carousel of Progress' first came to light at the 1964 New York World fair as part of GE's Progressland. It was then relocated to Disneyland where it stayed from 1967 until 1973.
In 1975, the show was moved once again to it's current home at WDW's Magic Kingdom.
The show's original and current theme song "There's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow" and its pre-1994 song "Now is the Time" were both written by the Oscar-winning Sherman Brothers.
The show is split between 6 different theatres, 4 of which feature audio-animatronic characters. Each theatre can accommodate 240 guests.
In case you wondered: The parents' names are John and Sara, the children's names are Patricia and Jimmy and the uncle's name is Orville.
Guests may remain in wheelchairs or ECVs to experience the attraction.

There are lots of neat surprises in the last scene: check out the nutcracker on the fireplace, the plush toy peeking out of the present, the wrapping paper, and the white pepper mill on the kitchen counter.
Also, the painting on the back wall is an abstract version of Mickey Mouse from "Fantasia."
