It's a fine balance at Disney. Older folks love the older rides, etc. but they bore the kids. Not a shock. You hate to see them go, but I also understand when they need to update things. The things I go to like Pirates and the Haunted Mansion and Carousel don't thrill the kiddies. See if while it's there. At some point, they'll replace it with something totally different. The best you can hope for is that they would upgrade and make a modern, more exciting iteration to attract new folks.
I too attended the 1964-65 Worlds Fair, and saw the GE Carousel of Progress. Of course there were no video games, the last scene of progress hadn't arrived yet. I remember Its a Small World was there, as was the Abraham Lincoln audio animatronics display, as I recall it was presented by the State of Illinois.
Does anyone remeber the giant smoke ring creating machine? It would launch a 20 foot diameter smoke ring hundreds of feet in the air.

Unfortunately, this company that made this pavilion will never be the same again. I am speaking of course of Kodak.

I saw it when I was at Disney this past Spring. I think I was the only one who liked it!
