Oh, I do hope it’s not just rumor that updating the “today” scene of Carousel of Progress is being done. That so-very-90s scene needs it.
As I proposed a while back on a thread about the need for an update, I think the final scene should depict how an American home looked when the ride first appeared in the 1964 World’s Fair. It celebrates 20th century America otherwise so makes more sense to me to keep the theme consistent.
What would really enhance such a redo would be a recording, if one exists, of Walt Disney talking about the ride. Reportedly, it was a favorite of his, and he expressed the desire that it never be removed.
As for the other rumored changes, something new is always exciting to see. None of those particularly thrills me, though. Maybe when they’re actually up and running.

I'd love to see an update to that final scene in Carousel of Progress as well. However, it might need to be some of the descendants talking about their grandparents' memories... even now, I struggle to work out how little they've aged between the first three scenes and the last one, given there's supposed to be about 50 years in it...
Frankly, I'm with Dot - just let's go back to a 1960s scene. I think that would work perfectly.

Tommorowland is very dated and needs a remodel. I hope they do the update of COP.
I really like the attraction and worry that it could be leaving soon. I'm not surprised if they make a change to electric cars at the Speedway. Sometime the fumes in that area are very bad. I'm always in favor new rides and attractions especially if Disney is not removing anything.
