Earlier this month, more news came out of Walt Disney World when it was announced the Carousel of Progress at Tomorrowland received an update. The family featured at the end of the ride have been given new, modern clothes. In addition to the new clothes, several of the animatronic characters also received facial makeovers. The father now has a darker hair color and the mother was given a new hairstyle and a new pair of glasses. The Carousel of Progress is one of Magic Kingdom's oldest rides and actually predates Magic Kingdom by nearly a decade. The ride originally was created for the World's Fair in 1964 in New York City, and was later moved to Disney.
