Carousel of Progress [DL]


I know i've probably beaten this subject to death... but i still find the current use of the carousel theater an utter waste of a unique building. It was built as a rotating show building not an exhibit hall. Everything inside could have easily been moved into a static building. Now i know i not everyone like the hole idea of bringing an old show back.....but ... unless an equally entertaining show can be developed.. it REALLY shuld be home to The Carousel of Progress...updated of course. ... and if possible... like the haunted mansion...a sound alike used for the finale...Rex Allens vocals and singing the theme...were such an integrate part of the original show...ive seen the walt disney world version... and it lacks a charm the original had...That original show had you humming that tune all day once you left theater.

I know the WDW version is not as charming as the original but hey at least we used Rex Allen as the grandfather in scene 4 so there was at least a tiny connection to the original.

I agree about the Carousel building/show at DL but I have to go a step further and say that IMO pretty much all of the "Tomorrowland" outdoor space is an utter waste. There are some incredible design options sitting in the drawer at WDI if only they could see the light of day.
 
So i decided to watch Summer Magic after many years...wow i totally did not realize that the opening credits, right after the buena vista title, start off with the opening music of the carousel of progress alternate reality version that was featured on the worlds fair cd set.
