It’s a Small World | Disneyland Description
In Disneyland’s It’s a Small World ride, sing along to the classic anthem of world peace during a musical boat tour hosted by the children of the world. Climb aboard a cozy boat and set sail along the Seven Seaways canal for an approximate 15-minute journey, presented by Siemens.
Amid a vibrant, multi-colored backdrop exquisitely crafted out of papier-mâché, glitter and fabric, behold a cast of almost 300 traditionally dressed dimple darlings from nearly every corner of the globe sing a simple song in their native language about universal harmony and dance. Travel to all 7 continents and, by journey’s end, see for yourself that it truly is a small world after all.
From the snow-capped Swiss Alps to the golden Serengeti, the children of the world are ready to make your acquaintance. During your tour, experience a rainbow of diverse cultures from such far-off locales as:
- The Polar Regions
- The British Isles
- Western Europe
- Eastern Europe
- The Middle East
- South America
- The South Pacific
- The United States
Before returning home, the children reunite for a grand finale, reminding us of our common bonds of friendship, laughter and happiness—and by seeing the world through the eyes of a child, we are all basically the same.
Some familiar new faces debuted on February 6, 2009 with the addition of dolls representing select Disney and Disney•Pixar characters.
