Call me sentimental or nostalgic, but I make this a must-stop every time I'm in the Magic Kingdom. It never has a line, which is a shame as it represents the ideal themed show, in my books. Sure, its visions for the future are straight-80s, but that somehow adds to it.
I'm interested to see its competition.
I remember the 50's very well, my mother lived in the 20's and my father lived in the early 1900's. So CoP, is like a trip into my familys' past, and how they lived. And Robert, I'm proud to say I fell in love with CoP, when I first saw it at Disneyland with my wife and her family many years ago. So count me in as one of those old folks who love the show and Zachary as one of the young folks!!!!
WORD TO YOUR MOTHER!!!!!!!!!
I just love the song, history, and animatronics which aren't too shabby.
Something tells me that this will be around for awhile since it is the only "Classic Disney" attraction that WDW has (meaning that Walt Disney actually built and rode).
I love the message and the whole feel goodness of it all. I hope for an update, buts its not too shabby right now. Lets all be a little more positive about this attraction! I would like to see it perhaps moved so that it can stay in place forever. Not sure if its really prime real estate in Tomorrowland. Why not get rid of the stage that is never used?
Theres a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow just a dream away......
CoP is a unique, entertaining, immersive attraction, without which many of the animatronic adventures everyone loves today would not exist. It is a shame that so many people are too focused on the next three minute thrill to stop and enjoy the classics that inspired an entire generation of theme park enthusiasts.
And for the record, I am GEN X. "Good taste" was not retired circa 1960.
I was born in '87, and I love this attraction. Much better than most of the "thrill rides" in the park, like Big Thunder Mountain Failroad.
Oh, and luis, mentioning baby boomers and "the bee's knees" in the same sentence...well, that's just wrong! By several decades. Now, THAT'S outdated.
Kids these days... =)
