    CoP is a must-do for us on every trip. And we sing along as well, but usually quietly unless others are singing, too!

    We usually make a point to see it, though I do agree that it needs a little updating...I would hate to see this Walt original ever get run down or closed...

    My second favorite attraction in WDW, though the last scene needs something done. I'm not an imagineer or anything, so I have no clue what I would do to fix it. I like the suggestion that they change the intervals from 20 to 40 years, but then it would have to span two different centuries, and it seems to me that part of the point is that we see the "typical American family" throughout the 20th century.

    If we can dream it, we can do it

    Must do!
    I know I've posted this on this site before, regarding CoP, but we had never even heard of it when we took the kiddos on their first trip in '01. It was a sweltering afternoon in Tomorrowland in July and we were lookin' for a place to cool off for a bit. We stumbled across it and it looked promising. We were hooked! Saw it at least a coupla' more times that trip and on susequent trips. It's tradition for us now...when we can actually get to WDW, anyway...!

    It's a must do for my family. We were on it last Saturday. I always wondered how the family looked so young after 100 year. I think they are vampires.
