    Should Carrosel of Progress be in EPCOT?

    I had this thought last night. Tommorowland seems to be wavering away from the "look to the future" idea it was founded on, and some people in the company have thought about removing Carrosel of Progress, however Walt said so himself that he didn't want it gone so I had an idea. I once thought of EPCOT as one big Tommorowland. Especially Future world. So, what would you think if they remolded Future world as a park similar to what Tommorowland used to be, and the center of it could be Carrosel of Progress. Surrounding it would be other attractions involving Walt's idea of his city of Tomorrow. What do you think?

    Carousel of Progress: Part Two was at Epcot, it was known as Horizons.

    I didn't know that.

    Lol.

    Well, while I do agree that Tomorrowland is losing its image of a look into the future, what better way to preserve it than to keep an original icon in there?

    I think it could work over there, as long as they don't get rid of it, it's a classic!:mickey:
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible!

    I think it's fine in Tomorrowland. It's part of the Kitsch that the rest of the land has become!

    Sound like epcot would be a great place for the CoP it would be a great additoon there but iff added they should do a littl bit of updating to make it more cutting edge.

    If it does get moved to Epcot, it could go into the Wonders of Life Pavilion and bring back Horizons. But i cant' think of anything else to add there yet, or what to name it.

    I think it should stay right where it is. As much as i love the attraction. I also need a place to go when i need to burn time for a fastpass.

    I think it's fine where it is right now. But i wouldn't mind it being in Epcot.

    Good topic. On one hand, I can see why CoP would go in Epcot, with the theme of that park. Of course CoP was Walt's creation, and so in many ways, is timeless. I always think of those attractions belonging in MK, the park that I always think of the "park that walt built".
    I am in need of some Disney magic!!

    Interesting idea... but I think it belongs right where Walt left it (OK, maybe not Walt, but it sounded good, so go with me here)

    I definetley agree with lou, CoP was walt's original idea and it belongs in the park that I believe is dedicated in his memory.
