The theme song, "(There's a) Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow" premiered with the attraction at the New York 1964-1965 World's Fair. After nearly a decade at Disneyland the attraction was moved to the Magic Kingdom with a new song "Now is the Time." With the New Tomorrowland in 1994 the Carousel of Progress reopened with updated scenes and the return of the classic song.
