I've read the reviews of the Pooh ride and it sounds like it's, uh, underwhelming compared to the Florida one (which is underwhelming compared to the Toyko Disneyland one, apparently). I'm not a Disney cynic though, and a lot of those reviewers like to just bash Disney stuff.

I love the submarine voyage. Great narration. Real water (the new one in Toyko is completely dry).

CircleVision is sheduled to be opened again.

Let's hope the do SOMETHING with Tomorrowland .... Like replace Innoventions with

it's just that Carousel was in more line with a 'world of tomorrow theme' - especially with the progress city model afterwards -
it's a shame they chopped the model city up - when we saw it in WDW in was a 1/3 or less of its original size and you sped past it on the people mover.

Since they got rid of those stupid Rocket Rods, they should re-do the People Mover, since the new Tron will be coming out soon and it would go hand in hand. Viva la People Mover!

Cwoool, Circlevision's coming back! In the long-run, though, I hear it might be replaced by Buzz Lightyear's Space Spin.

When is the new Tron movie coming out? I've only seen concept art for it on the Tron DVD, and I know there's a new Tron video game coming out. Were you referring to the game?

I never got to see the Progress City model up close. :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( I ALMOST went on Carousel of Progress in '72. My sister wanted to go on it, but my parents hated it because they thought it was just a big commercial for GE, and my mom thought the animatronic dog was tacky. So I didn't go on it until after it had moved to Florida. I loved it.

For a few years, the Progress City model remained at Disneyland, but you could only see it fleetingly from the People Mover, and I don't think you could see the whole model from up there. The narrator said something like, "This city is a dream...and if we all do things right, it may really happen." Then zip, out you went. At the time, I couldn't see what was so special about the city (i.e., the extensive monorails and People Movers). There wasn't enough time or enough explanation. I believe parts of it still moved then, but that doesn't seem to be the case any more.

Oh! Years ago, I read in the now-defunct Storyboard magazine that there was thought of duplicating Horizons on the site of the carousel theater! This was around 1989.

i have a copy of the monorail song on cd from when they had kiosks in tomorrowland and on main street where you could make your own cd of the park's music - don't know if they still do that???

i made 2 cds myself - got the entire soundtrack to Carousel of Progress, Adventure Through Inner Space theme (Miracles from Molecules which BTW was the theme song of my old !), House of the Future music and the Monorail song along with some of the Space Mountain concourse music.

if you can't still get them in the park - do searchs on ebay for "disneyland forever" - the title of these self made cd's. The monorail song is simply called just that - the monorail song.
