Now is the Time! was the song that I grew up with, but I like Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow better just because of how extra positive/optimistic it is. :P

I love Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow. I think the ride gets overlooked cause it's tucked away. I would like to see an update though

Have you ever been trapped in the Carousel of Progress with a little one just bawling? It's heart-breaking, and at the same time, really distracting. Do you think it's ok to ask the cast member to ask the parents to step outside, especially if it just goes on and on?

Now Is the Time

Post by kcookiebaker » Aug Sun 02, 2009 4:05 pm

Sorry, I think the poll is over and I didn't get my thought in.
I like Now Is the Time, I think it's because we did it so many times eons ago that it is etched in my mind...sort of like It's a Small World After All. ..except more interesting.

I couldn't vote either, but it would have been a tought choice, I like both of them. They are equally catchy and seem to stay with you, kind of like if you've ridden its a small world a few times in a row.

I know I've already vote on this one, but I think my real favorite is the one I'm listening to at the time. :D

Well, as Jean Shepherd says, "...you're in for a real treat.."

GBBT is one of my favorites, it's one of the first things we do when we get to WDW as it really puts us in the "Disney Mood".
