Mar 14: Pre-Aladdin Magic Carpet

On this day in 1975, Magic Carpet 'Round the World, a Circle Vision 360° film shown at Disney World, ended its run.
Shown in the same Tomorrowland theater that had originally featured America the Beautiful, Magic Carpet had first debuted back in March 1974. The film took guests on a tour of landmarks across the four corners of the globe. Sponsored by Monsanto, Magic Carpet would later return for an encore in 1979 (and run until 1984).
A revised version of America the Beautiful replaced Magic Carpet the following day, March 15. American Journeys took over the theater in 1984 only to be ultimately replaced by The Timekeeper in 1994.
