Walter sez, "The Carousel of Progress is a classic Walt Disney World attraction consisting of an Audio-Animatronic stage show that follows a family throughout the technological progress of the 20th century. The Carousel of Progress also happens to be my wife Carrie's favorite Disney attraction. Carrie turns 30 this month, and as a surprise, I want to put together a big enthusiastic audience to join her in a viewing of the show. The Carousel is obscure and unpopular with most Disney guests, so a big enthusiastic audience would make Carrie overwhelmed with happiness. If you can make it out to Magic Kingdom this Saturday at 11:30AM, please join in."
The Carousel is one of my all-time favorites, too. I named a book after its main theme. I always sit in the front row, and sing along. My wife sings too, but her words go, "There's a great big hairy Cory Doctorow, sitting in the front row every day." She is less enthusiastic about scenes of animatronic technological progress than I am.
But she is a patient woman.
