PHOTOS: Carousel of Progress Closed for Second Day at the Magic Kingdom; Maintenance Team On Site for Repairs

There may be a great, big, beautiful tomorrow aboard the Carousel of Progress, but today, things aren’t looking too hot for John, Rover, and the rest of the family. The Carousel of Progress attraction failed to open yesterday at the Magic Kingdom during park open, and remains closed still today.

The good news is that there seems to be some progress being made on the attraction, as maintenance crews were seen on-site actively trying to make some repairs.

The attraction’s status has been updated on the My Disney Experience app to reflect the downtime. Fans of the rotating show have noticed a number of issues with the attraction as of late, including faulty speakers and missing music tracks, and even more serious issues with the various animatronics, such as John’s hand falling off mid-show back in February.

We’ll continue to check on the status of this beloved Tomorrowland attraction, and hope that it’s back up soon to offer the crowds a welcome respite from the heat as well as a dose of Disney history.
