OK, first a warning....as always, things can change, but these plans are correct as of now..
Carousel of Progress will be open for the Christmas season!! Plans indicate it being open from 12/23/01 to 1/2/02. It will still be running on reduced hours during that time, but will at least be open.
If the COP is hugely popular during this time, it may just have the effect of changing some minds in Management about the future of Walt's COP. So when it does open, make sure you ride it over and over!!
