Walt Disney's Carousel of Progress
Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress

By Mike Ellis.

Last week we did a series of picture polls on our Facebook page regarding your favorite things at the Magic Kingdom.  First we took a look at your favorite Magic Kingdom Mountain, and now we are taking a look at your favorite Magic Kingdom shows!

Like last time, the picture at the top, Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress — is the show that wins based on Facebook likes for the picture, comments, and shares!  Overall, Carousel of Progress had 44 Facebook likes and 7 comments in favor of the show, for a grand total of 51 votes!

I think that Carousel of Progress won out because the show reminds us of how life used to be — slower, less hectic; it was just easier to stop and smell the roses!  While a lot of people feel like the closing scene needs to revamped and made more modern, I don’t agree with that sentiment.  Sure, it’s outdated — but it flows from one generation to the next, and if you upgraded the fourth scene to be more modern, I think it would feel like it was skipping something.  What do you all think?

Coming in second place, based on our informal voting — and something of a surprise selection in my opinion — is the Country Bear Jamboree.  It didn’t win because of comments; PhilharMagic had more comments in favor of it then Country Bear did — but it had more likes on the photo.  This may be a case where the quality of the image helped one candidate over another.  Or, perhaps Country Bear Jamboree came in second because it is a Magic Kingdom Opening Day attraction.  I’m not sure — what are your theories about it?  Please let me know in the comments.

That leaves us with Mickey’s PhilharMagic; our third place entry in our favorite Magic Kingdom Shows informal poll.  Whereas Country Bear Jamboree garnered 26 votes, PhilharMagic gathered in 21 votes, so it wasn’t a landslide, that’s for sure!  Still, if I had to rank them, I would rank them as Carousel of Progress at 1A, Mickey’s PhilharMagic at 1B, and Country Bear Jamboree a distant 3rd.  For me, what makes the PhilharMagic special is the scenes from the classic Disney films.  That is what I love about Mickey’s PhilharMagic.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I appreciate all that you do in reading our posts; please let me know what I can do to help bring you more Disney Magic into your daily life!  Thanks, and have a Disney Day!
