    Carousel of Progress

    This will probably be a quick and easy-to-answer question. I read on Yesterland that COP has more or less been shut down, with the exception of peak seasons. Is this true?

    Thank you in advance for your help!


    P.S. The YL article does make mention of the WDW version, inside the DL COP article, which is what I'm basing this off of.

    Re: Carousel of Progress

    That was a few years ago, ever since Alien Encounter close to make make for Stitch, the Carousel of Progress has been open every day, though sometimes with limited hours.

    Ah. Thank you very much for the info! I thought it was so sad that they all but closed it down. Good to hear it's going again.

    That's sad you had to drag them. This used to be one hot ticket! I still think of it that way, even though I've never been on it. Or to WDW, or FL, for that matter. I'm hoping to be going in '09, and I will definately go see the show, at least once. I've only ever experienced this through the DL 50th 6-CD set, and on YouTube. Frankly, though, I like the original voice acting better. But, regardless, I'm happy that this piece of Disney history is still around.

    Another question: is there ever a huge line for it, esp. at peak seasons? Or has it, sadly, fallen to the wayside?

    Usually it's not too bad to get in. Might have to wait for the next turn of the theater but won't have to wait long.

    Re: Carousel of Progress

    Cool. I know this thing just eats up the peeps, but I didn't know what the actual popularity of it is. So... a mild to moderate guest interest? Kind of like for DCA?

    I've been in some shows in which the theater was pretty full. I have no idea what the other theaters are like or if I was just with a group of FastPass holders waiting for Space Mountain to reopen from a 101.

    I would say its moderate. I rarely see more than a theater-load or so in queue at once, but there are allways people going though it.

    And its my 8 year olds absolute favorite ride. We go on it 3 or 4 times every time we go.

    I love AA heavy attractions, too! And that is too cute that he was singing it!!

    But, yeah... 2 and 6? I can understand the dragging now. "But mommy, why do we have to sit still for so long?? I want to go see Pooh Bear!!" lol

    I've been at many different times of the year and it is always open. I've never had to wait more than about 10 minutes for it.
