    And I wanted to marry Michael Jackson.

    There are some things we should all just keep to ourselves.

Even though it did for a while have a "Best Time of Your Life" version, it is now more reserved on the same level as Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room. But they do have a couple tributes to the original in the current show, such as Cousin Orville, whose voice has not changed and the voice of Grandpa in the final scene is actually the voice of the original COP Father.
    There were more significant changes to the script in the older scenes than just removing references to GE. I don't recall them all, since the original is burned into my brain from listening to it so many times in the car.

    WHAT I'VE LEARNED FROM MICECHAT...
    1. IF YOU APPRECIATE SOMETHING THAT ISN'T THE MAJORITY OPINION, YOU'RE NOT WANTED HERE.
    2. IF THERE'S CHIPPED PAINT IN THE QUEUE FOR A LINE, EXPECT SOMEONE TO WRITE OUT A BIG STORY BASHING IT. WOOHOO.
    3. IF YOU'RE UNDER THE AGE OF 24, YOU'RE AN 'EISNER BRAT.'
    4. PEOPLE WHO ARE DEEMED AS 'MODERATORS' AND OTHER ADMINISTRATION ARE MORE IMPORTANT DIETIES THAN JESUS CHRIST.
    5. YOU CAN EXCPECT TO BE BADLY REPPED IF YOU TRY AND MAKE A SERIOUS POINT.
    6. YOU ARENT TAKEN SERIOUS IF YOU'RE UNDER THE AGE OF 16.
    7. AS AN ADD-ON TO #6, YOU SHOULD BE TREATED AS A SUBORDINATEIF YOU ARE IN A THEME PARK WAITING 30 MINUTES IN LINE FOR A DRINK WHILE SOMEONE HAS TO RECOUNT PIZZAS.
    8. "Disney may not care to hear your comments, but we do." WTFFF??? THIS ISN'T A DISNEY FAN FORUM, IT'S A DISNETY BASHING SITE.
    9. CERTAIN PEOPLE OVER ANALYZE A SIMPLE THREAD AND CONSIDER IT TO BE A CONTRACT FULL OF LOOPHOLES THAT HE/SHE CAN GET AROUND.
    AND FINALLY...
    10. PROLONGED USE OF THIS SITE CAN CAUSE AN EXTREME HATE OF DISNEY AND ALL DISNEY RELATED THINGS.

    Re: Carousel Of Progress question.

    Dog's name: Rover, Buster, and Sport. He isn't named in the fourth scene, and "Sport" is used again in the audio for Progress City.

    Just remembered. The TV "shootout" is missing from WDW version.

    What TV "shootout"? I never got to see it in DL.

    In the last scene in WDW, Grandma battles the son in a virtual reality space game. Is this an updated version of DL's "shootout"?
    These are the games that never end.

    Re: Carousel Of Progress question.

    Oh, I hope they don't take this away. Disney should have some sort of 'historical ride' marker, in which it is illegal to remove such rides that have been designated as such. Yea, I realize that things change, but some are just that...classic.

    In the original COP at Disneyland...that model was not named EPCOT or Prototype Community of Tomorrow...but was called simply "Progress City." Although the spiel did mention it as a prototype city.

    Also...what you see on the TTA Peoplemover at the Magic Kingdom at WDW...is only a small part of the original model. I would guess you're only seeing about 25% of the original model today. This is the current TTA spiel:

    The Tomorrowland Metro Retro Historical Society presents Walt Disney’s twentieth century vision of the future. These models represent what Walt believed to be the perfect community in which to work, live, and play.
    The original was huge. Took up the entire upper floor of the COP building, behind many windows stretching in a curving arc around the model, with likewise curving platform-walkways on which to view the model from many angles and vantage points. The towers of the center part of the city sat way in the back of the model room, and there was tons more stuff leading up to the glass. And it was really alive! All the little Peoplemovers and Monorails and the carnival and such were all animated and moving. Lot's of little lights blinking in all the cars and such.

    You listened to a pre-recorded spiel about this city of the future...and as the voice talked about various parts of Progress City...that section would light up by spotlight. You were taking a tour of the city, in effect...section by section.

    Here's an old Panavue slide of Progress City when it was the upstairs post-show of COP at Disneyland. But even it only covers a small section.

    Re: Carousel Of Progress question.

    Does it cost a lot of money to run it each time? Even if they don't have much of a crowd?
