    Still a good show, even though the last scene is dated, the first three are fun, my kids love it, it's a great way to relax in the afternoon, never seen it closed

    I'm pretty sure it's open during Magic Hours too, or at least it was when I went.

    I love this attraction, the concept is untouchable. The engineering solution to people throughput is just about perfect !

    It needs updating though.

    I was there just over a week ago and it was open during my entire stay.

    It hasn't been officially 'seasonal' in ages nor have I ever seen it breakdown. I've even seen it running during evening extra magic hours and special events. The old thing is a horse.

    From what I've heard is that it went seasonal but it never closed like a seasonal attraction does, so technically, it isn't a seasonal attraction. It should be open when you go.

    Ah. Thanks.

    Well, that's just simple supply and demand, right? Where are all those crowds going to go when one of the Mountain is down. Logically, across Rockettower Plaza.

    For a second there my brain was thinking, "Well, they could just have less shows per day." Then I remembered that it doesn't really work that way. inch:

    Definition please? (Sorry.)

    My guess is Operational Hourly Ride Capacity. So you're saying that, when the ride ran, it was full?

    The last instance of it being "seasonal" was before space went 10-1 for the "upgrades". The fact that the OHRC was hit almost every hour made the managers think twice about it being seasonal again. =P

    It is not listed as seasonal on park maps or WDW's website and it is always operational. Where are you getting this seasonal/breaks down stuff from? I have ridden CoP over 20 times in the last year. I experienced one E-stop due to stupid people standing up during the show.

    Every time I visit WDW, CoP is always open. It's definitely not seasonal anymore.

    HALLELUJAH Carousel is back, baby!

    I saw it in August with my family and really liked it. It's such a nice change of pace from, say, Stitch's Great Escape. *yuck*

Being that Memorial weekend is right around the corner you may be lucky too and it could be open. You also might want to call to find out.
    That CM was wrong. CoP is now operating on a normal schedule (has been for a number of years now). It is open everyday during regular park hours. You will have no problem riding/watching it.

    Thanks for the information! I really really hope that attraction is open. I am most excited to see it. As a long time Disneyland fan, it is something that I never had the privilege of seeing since I was born a bit too late.
    Should I contact the main guest relations number to find out if it will be open?
    Thanks again!
