Man has the Dream and that’s the start
he follows his dream with mind and heart
and when it becomes a reality, its a dream come true for you and me!

haha, had to finish off the verse :tongue:

Does anyone remember the words to the old Carousel of Progress song?

I only know this song from what I’ve heard on Internet Radio and YouTube.

Now is the time,
Now is the best time,
Now is the best time of your life!
Life is a prize,
Live every minute
Open your eyes and watch how you win it

Yesterday’s mem’ries may sparkle and gleam,
Tomorrow is still but a dream
Right here and now,
You’ve got it made,
The world’s forward marching and you’re in the parade!

Now is the time,
Now is the best time,
Be it a time of joy or strife,
There’s so much to cheer for,
Be glad you’re here for it’s the best time of your life!

I only know of the song “There’s a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow”, I wasnt aware of an older version of a COP song…


#11

Remember when it was sponsored by G.E.? The carousel has been around for almost fifty years right? Wasn’t it a World’s Fair presentation?


#12

My DDs LOVE this attraction too! :happy: Classic Disney! :heart:

I think in the off season it only runs on certain days, but in season it’s up and running everyday.


#13

I love CoP and hope to see the show again in Sept. I just didn’t like when it went down last May and was pgoing over the same scene 5 times.


#14

Yes, and I saw it there in 1965. The fair ran for two seasons 1964 and 1965.


#15

A trip to WDW is not complete if I cannot get a COP fix.


#16

where did you get the audio files??
