The  award winning 'It's a Small World' song forms the soundtrack to the attraction and was penned by the genius songwriter duo and brothers, Richard Sherman and the late Robert Sherman. The songwriters are particularly dear to Disney, writing and composing many award winning and critically acclaimed songs for the Walt Disney Company, including songs for Disney  films like The Jungle Book's I Wanna Be Like You  and Mary Poppins Superkalifragilistikexpialigetisch.   It's a Small World catchy song lyrics and the attraction's utopian ambitions combined, have been touching the hearts of Disney guests for fifty years and has become as synonymous with a Disney visit as witnessing the Cinderella Castle.
