Walt Disney's Carousel of Progress is a show for all ages presented in a revolving

story of the evolution of technology in the 20th century.

remarkable family of Audio-Animatronic performers. Travel through time from decade
to decade as the family discovers fantastic new technologies that make their lives
more easy, comfortable and fun—and sometimes a bit more complicated!

The Carousel Theater

The theater for Walt Disney's Carousel of Progress is almost as impressive as the
show. The audience rotates around a central stage, which allows a new group of
Guests to take a seat every few minutes, instead of having to wait the full length of
the show. This ingenious piece of technology is the perfect way to frame a show about
the power of innovation.


Originally named General Electric Carousel of Progress, the show was personally created
by Walt Disney for the 1964-65 New York World's Fair. It played at Disneyland theme
park in California from July 2, 1967 until September 9, 1973. The show next moved to
Magic Kingdom theme park in Florida where it opened on January 15, 1975. In 1994,
the show was rewritten and restaged with the new name Walt Disney's Carousel of Progress.


The 21-minutes stage show is located in Tomorrowland's central hub. Walt Disney's
Carousel of Progress is open seasonally.
