    I'd like to think they'll keep Carousel, but I expect it will be closed eventually. Disney does not seem as concerned anymore about past classics, and probably will close rides if they're not popular.

    I think Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder, Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribeean, and It's a Small World are totally safe.

    I hope they keep the Jungle Cruise, but it could use an update.

    Cheers!

    I dont see them getting rid of this... But I can imagine them closing it down and getting rid of most of it to expand the Magic Kingdom... But then putting the train around the new expansion.
    Life isn't about the destination, everybody gets to that. It is about the journey.

    New to posting anything - here goes! It would be sad to see the Carousel of Progress shut down - I'm guessing I'm the oldest in this chat, but when I was 10, I remember going on it at the New York World's Fair along with Small World and seeing Mr. Lincoln stand up and give an address in the Illinois Pavillion - a haunting memory.
    I agree Jungle Cruise could use an update. I thought it was a little flat the last time I went on it. But get rid of it???? Never!

    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.
