    That is really cool! My mom remembers going to the World Fair and seeing Carousel of Progress and It's a Small World. She always talks about it whenever we go to Disney!

    I was born in '66 so just missed out! But both my family and my wife's have oodles of photos - I should go through them all and see if they are in each other's photos!
