Carousel of Progress Fails to Open, Now Temporarily Closed at the Magic Kingdom
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 earlier today at the Magic Kingdom during park open, and has since remained temporarily closed for the remainder of the day.
The attraction’s status has since 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.
