Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress – Magic Kingdom – Walt Disney World – Attraction Checklist #41

Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress – Magic Kingdom – Walt Disney World – Attraction Checklist #41

http://www.attractionchecklist.com – It’s time to experience an iconic Disney attraction, Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom.  Joining me is John B. deHaas.  We learn a little about the attraction and then give it a ride.  Recorded on May 25, 2017.

The attraction audio recorded for this episode is available exclusively to the Saturday Morning Media Patron Patron.  Support the show and get fun Bonus content over at http://www.patreon.com/saturdaymorningmedia

INTRO TRANSCRIPT:

Welcome to Attraction Checklist.

It’s time to experience a classic!  This episode we head to Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom to take a spin on Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress.  Located in Tomorrowland, the guide map describes this attraction thusly, “Travel through the 20th Century to see how technology has improved our way of life.”  There are no age or height requirements for this attraction and the thrill level describes this attraction as being a slow ride.  Before we answer the age old question of just what is shining at the end of every day, here are five fast facts about Walt Disney’s Carousel of progress.

1. In the 1950’s Walt Disney came up with the foundation of the idea for the Carousel of Progress but the technology available to the Imagineers at the time made it impossible.  It wasn’t until General Electric approached Walt Disney to develop a show for the 1964//65 World’s Fair that Walt was able to make the show a reality, opening on April 22, 1964.  After a successful run at the Fair, the show was moved to Disneyland where it opened on July 2, 1967.  The show ran at Disneyland until September 1973 when it was moved, at General Electric’s urging, to Walt Disney World.  The show opened at the Magic Kingdom on January 15, 1975 and still runs daily at the time of this recording.

2.  The carousel theatre concept, where the audience revolves around the stage, was developed by a team of imagineers led by Bob Gurr and Roger E. Broggie.  This allowed the guests to remain seated during the duration of the show rather than getting up and moving to the next theatre as had been the original plan.

3.  The attraction’s iconic song, There’s A Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow’ was written by Disney Legends, The Sherman Brothers.  When it first opened at Walt Disney World, it had a new song, also written by the Sherman Brothers called The Best Time Of Your Life.  In 1993, when the show was given a major overhaul and an update, There’s A Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow returned to the show.  The Sherman Brothers have stated that that song, There’s A Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow was Walt Disney’s Theme Song as he was always so optimistic about the future.

4.  The show’s original narrator, playing the part of the father, was singing cowboy Rex Allen.  When the show was overhauled in 1993, that role went to radio personality Jean Shepherd, author of the stories that inspired the movie A Christmas Story.  Rex Allen was still in the show, this time playing the Grandfather in Act 3.  One other voiceover note, Mel Blanc, the legendary voice actor behind Bugs Bunny and Daffy duck, plays Uncle Orville in the show.  And Janet Waldo who voices the grandmother in Act 4 was also the voice of Judy Jetson on The Jetsons

5.  Of the 32 different audio animatronic figures in the attraction, a crowd favorite is Rover, the family dog.  In the current show, Rover is the dog’s name the entire time.  When the attraction first opened at Walt Disney World, the dog had a different name in every scene including Buster, Sprot, Quieenie and Rover.

Now let’s sit back and enjoy Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress.  Joining me today is John B. dehaas and after the ride audio we’ll give you our shouts on this classic attraction.  This is a binaural recording so if you have headphones, put them on now as we are about to experience Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress at Walt Disney WOrld’s Magic Kingdom!

Stitch’s Great Escape! – Magic Kingdom – Walt Disney World

Stitch’s Great Escape! – Magic Kingdom – Walt Disney World

http://www.attractionchecklist.com – Let’s head to Tomorrowland in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom to experience Stitch’s Great Escape!  We learn a little about the attraction and then hear it in binaural audio!  Recorded on May 25, 2016.

The attraction audio recorded for this episode is available exclusively to the Saturday Morning Media Patron Patron.  Support the show and get fun Bonus content over at http://www.patreon.com/saturdaymorningmedia

INTRO TRANSCRIPT:

Welcome to Attraction Checklist.

This episode we head to Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World to experience the Tomorrowland attraction Stitch’s Great Escape!  The guide map says: Interact with a mischievous Stitch in this dark theatre-in-the-round experience.  There is a height requirement of 40” for this attraction and the Thrill Level describes Stitch’s Great Escape! as being Dark, Scary and Loud.

1. Stitch’s Great Escape opened at The Magic Kingdom on November 16, 2004.  To celebrate the attraction’s opening, Cinderella’s Castle at Magic Kingdom was covered in toilet paper.  Supposedly a prank by Experiment 626, Stitch, himself.

2.  Stitch’s Great escape is the fourth attraction to occupy this show building in Tomorrowland.  The original right was Flight To The Moon which later became Mission to Mars.  After that, the building was home for ExtraTERRORestriel Alien Encounter.  When that ride was shuttered, Stitch’s Great Escape moved in.

3.  Several show elements from Alien Encounter remain in Stitch’s Great Escape.  Including the alien known as Skippy during the pre-show.

4.  With the attraction being based on the film Lilo and Stitch, many of the voice actors from the film reprise their roles in this attraction.  This includes Kevin MacDonald as pleakly and Chris Sanders as Stitch.  The storyline of this attraction takes place before the events of the movie.

5.  The Stitch audio animatronic built for the show stands approximately 39” tall and is, reportedly, the first audio animatronic ever to spit.

Now, let’s check out Stitch’s Great Escape.  I have edited down the audio during the transitions between rooms to make the show flow a bit quicker.  Keep listening after the attraction audio I’ll give you my thoughts on this attraction and if you have headphones, put them on now as this is a binaural recording of Stitch’s Great Escape at Walt Disney WOrld’s Magic Kingdom.
