The kids might think this attraction is boring and slow, but to me it's pure Disney Magic. Knowing the history behind this attraction undoubtedly slants my opinion. I’ve seen videos of this attraction, and I have some short low resolution videos for you today, but you gotta see it in person. The stage is much small than I envisioned, definitely smaller than America Sings.
This was a free attraction at Disneyland and the Magic Kingdom, from what I can tell there was never a ticket charge to see this show. If anyone has info, please let me know.
The main building has changed very little, basically just the sign and the upper level railings have been replaced. And of course the color has changed.

Inside the theater, the show is about to begin. No flash photo’s, so you get this blurry shot of the curtains.
I recorded the first line from the song in each of the 4 time periods. There are plenty of full versions on YouTube if you want to see the whole show. These just give you a glimpse of the show and the great mega catchy tune!

On with the show, by the way, “There's a great big beautiful tomorrow, shining at the end of every day!”
You’ll be singing that tune all day! It beats singing “It’s a small world”…
More great architecture, the paint job is ok and actually works as far as blending in to the area.
This was taken from the moving PeopleMover on the upper level of the Carousel of Progress. It looks like an older sign, I like it.
It’s amazing that Walt’s 1964 World’s fair ideas just keep on giving! There is a great posting over at Yesterland about the Carousel of Progress (link) be sure to check it out.
Between the Carousel of Progress and the WEDWay PeopleMover, its almost like visiting Disneyland in a time machine. Almost...
