|Welcome, to Walt Disney's Carousel
of Progress. You're in for a real treat. The Carousel of
Progress was Walt's own idea from beginning to end. He
loved it. He introduced the show at the World's Fair in
New York City in 1964 and it was an immediate smash hit.
Millions of people came to see it and since then, the
Carousel of Progress has had more performances than any
other stage show in the history of American theater. You
know, Walt loved the idea of progress and he loved the
American family. He himself was probably as American as
anyone could possibly be. He thought it would be fun to
watch the American family go through the twentieth
century experiencing all new wonders as they came. And he
put them together in a show called Carousel of Progress,
which we are about to see. Although our Carousel family
has experienced a few changes over the years, our show
still revolves around the same theme - and that's
progress. May the century begin.
