TMIP Special Report – Carousel of Progress / Who is This Kid?


TMIP INVESTIGATIVE SPECIAL REPORT –

“CAROUSEL OF PROGRESS / WHO IS THIS KID?!”

carousel of progress

In the opening act of Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress in Walt Disney World (currently celebrating the 50th anniversary of its inception at the 1964 New York World’s Fair) there is a scene on stage right where Sarah, the wife/ mother, is ironing and a small girl with long blonde pigtails is working a spinning wheel.  This child is clearly neither Patricia (“Papa, all these people!  I’m indecent!”) not is it James (“So that’s the Little Egypt doing the hoochie-coochie, eh dad?”) as both of them appear as teenagers in the opening act.

This child is clearly not identified in the opening act, and she does not appear in any other scene in the Carousel of Progress.  Sooooooo…. this TMIP Investigative Special Report asks the question, “Who in the world is this kid?”  This is something that I have always wondered.

If you have any ideas, or even just a wild conjecture, [lease leave your comments in the space provided below and be sure to check out the new forums at WDW 360!

    My wife feels that maybe she died from a childhood illness which was very common in that time period. Walt Disney may have been sensitive to that, but did not want it explained.

    Maybe it’s Uncle Orville’s kid?
