“There’s a great big beautiful tomorrow!” I know you just sang those words in your head. Carousel of Progress is one of my favorite attractions in all of Walt Disney World, purely for the nostalgia factor.

Located in Tomorrowland, the attraction is a 20 minute show taking Guests through a journey of how technological advances affected average families throughout the 20th century.

Walt Disney personally had a hand in creating this attraction for the 1964 World’s Fair in New York. After the fair was over in 1965, it moved to Disneyland for 6 years. The show finally made its home in Disney World where it has entertained and delighted Guests since 1975.

This is one attraction that I hope Disney never replaces, although I do think a more recent era should be added to the end of the show. It is great to watch if you love history and even better if you need a break in the air conditioning.

So, how can you take a piece of this attraction home? By heading across the way to Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies for the Uncle Orville bathtub sundae!

Yes, Disney put a sundae in a bathtub

Why would Disney put a sundae in a bathtub? This requires us to go back to the Carousel of Progress to one of the earlier scenes. You may remember Uncle Orville relaxing in a bathtub with one of those “air coolant” contraptions.

No privacy at all around this place!

Uncle Orville

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World, the Uncle Orville Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow sundae celebrates the history and nostalgia of the show. This is one attraction that is not represented at all, which is a real shame because it is a true classic.

This sundae has huge brownie pieces, ice cream, hot fudge, whipped cream, and sprinkles in a giant bathtub dish. Priced at $16.99, this sundae is the perfect treat to enjoy in the parks and then take home! Just make sure you clean it out before putting it in your bag.

Many people take their popcorn buckets and sippers to use once they return home, so now you can add the bathtub for homemade sundaes. This was a classic sundae, and I enjoyed it very much!

Do you love Carousel of Progress? Is this not the most perfect little souvenir to take home! Disney doesn’t have any Carousel of Progress merchandise. Join the conversation in the comments below and on Facebook.

  1. Honestly it’s a terrible ride and a waste of space. Legit people keeping this running as if it has any value is embarrassing. Just a waste on all fronts. Doesn’t even hold up to reality. People who want to keep this are ruining Disney, you terrible people.

  2. Mel Blanc….AKA Bugs Bunny

    Love the COP….Still miss it at Disneyland! It needs some love though. And a return to the Rex Allen version, with the exit via a speed ramp on the stage.

  3. Sadly Disney is changing so much it’s not the same anymore just like splash mountain,they’ve made it all about race when it wasn’t it was about family values and fun rides we grew up with being totally re done or taken away,Walt would be rolling in his grave if he only knew I personally won’t ever go back but I was born and raised here in Florida and carry many many memories with me of my mom and siblings going together the awesome times and camping at ft wilderness,the amusement park I loved is long gone I’m afraid

  4. Love COP!! My biggest fear is….they will decide its too costly to keep running. Please everyone ride this attraction, and let them know this is an important piece of Disney history. It would be nice if there was some merchandise. Maybe a Christmas ornament that played the song?

  5. Love the COP. Also agree with Uncle Orville that “there is no privacy at all around this place” (how did he know that Disney was going to make everyone pack information recording cell phones as part of their attendence)?

    Like the brownie sundae and that is represents the COP. Don’t like the $16.99 price (what a ripoff) or the fact that it is in a non-green plastic container (Disney thinks it’s OK to use a $0.05 piece of molded plastic if they can get another $10 of profit).

    Chepak a $$ whore. He’ll screw over guests and the environment just to make a buck.
