While Walt didn’t live long enough to see his Florida Project come to life, his impact can still be felt around the parks. Especially when visiting the attractions that he not only oversaw but loved as well.
One such attraction is Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress, which made it’s debut at the 1964 World’s Fair. Packed with the newest GE home technology, Audio Animatronics, glimpses of what the future would bring and bolstered by one of the catchiest songs ever thanks to Robert and Richard Sherman, it was the darling of the Fair.
The Carousel of Progress has traveled around a bit from New York to California and ultimately to it’s current home in Florida, but the heart and ideas of this attraction still hold as true as they did in 1964. That alone is deserving of Walt’s name above the marquee.
