It's A World of Laughter....


Disneyland re-opened the It's A Small World ride today!! They did a lovely job with it too. The new characters blend right in and do not distract from the original beauty in any way. They have regrouped some of the scenes, but never for a moment does it feel like that old magic is gone. This was always my favorite ride as a child and I was worried about the changes ruining my memories, but that is not the case. It's perfect! It just seems as though the colors are more crisp and the sound is more clear. The addition of some classic Disney characters enhance the whole attraction.

Disneyland Press Release

As you may know, our family had a sneak preview last weekend. If you look carefully at the video below you will see the back of our heads in the first two rows of the boat going under the Asian arch and dragon kite (right after the flying carpet scene). It's just the back of Drew (white shirt and blue sweater vest in second row) and I (white shirt in front row of boat). Ha Ha! I know that it's slly to be excited about seeing the back of our heads on the video clip, but it was thrilling to be a part of the magic!

Did You Know?


The classic attraction “It’s A Small World” at Disneyland celebrates peace and honors humanity with a joyful boat ride around the globe.

For the first time, guests will be able to see the child dolls dressed as selected Disney characters, in countries where their stories take place.

Originally created for the 1964 New York World's Fair, "it's a small world" has more than 300 Audio-Animatronics® figures.

You can spy such globally recognized landmarks as the Taj Mahal, the Eiffel Tower and Big Ben.

The attraction has wheelchair access and handheld captioning is available.

A stylized sun or moon (“There is just one moon/And one golden sun …” ) appears somewhere in each region (some have both sun and moon.)

The design of the new characters replicates the bold yet childlike designs that were created by Disney Imagineering art director
and color stylist Mary Blair, who was honored as a “Disney Legend” posthumously in 1991.

“It’s a Small World (After All)” Lyrics
It’s a world of laughter
A world of tears;
It’s a world of hopes
And a world of fears.
There’s so much that we share
That it’s time we’re aware

It’s a small world after all.
It’s a small world after all,
It’s a small world after all,
It’s a small world after all,
It’s a small, small world.

There is just one moon
And one golden sun
And a smile means
Friendship to ev’ry one.
Though the mountains divide
And the oceans are wide,
It’s a small world after all.
