WDW Radio Show #244 – Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress – History, Legacy, Details and Future


Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress – History, Legacy, Details and Future


Hello and welcome to The WDW Radio Show – Your Walt Disney World Information Station. I am your host, Lou Mongello, and this is show #244 for the week of October 16, 2011.

As we continue to look back at Walt Disney World’s history in honor of its 40th anniversary, I want to take a close look at an attraction which may not have been part of the Magic Kingdom’s opening day, but is deeply rooted in its history and sense of nostalgia. While there may always be a great, big beautiful tomorrow, now is the time – now is the best time to explore the history, legacy, details and future of Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress. Jim Korkis joins me on a segment that is part Wayback Machine, part DSI: Disney Scene Investigation, and we’ll leave you with some thought-provoking questions that I encourage you to share your thoughts on.

I’ll give you more details about this year’s annual WDW Radio Epcot Food and Wine Festival Walkabout, taking place next weekend, before sharing a few announcements and playing more of your voicemails at the end of the show. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this week’s episode of the WDW Radio show.

Thanks for listening! Be sure to tune in next week!
