The world comes together to celebrate Disney's iconic 'It's a Small World' attraction!
To celebrate 50 years of the iconic 'It's a Small World' attraction at the Disney Parks, Disney are pulling out all the stops to recognise this very special song and this much loved attraction, that brings the whole world together!
'It's a Small World' is an interior boat cruise attraction that can be found at the Fantasyland themed area of all five Disney parks across the globe; Disneyland Park in California, Magic Kingdom in Florida, Disneyland Paris' Disneyland Park as well as Tokyo Disneyland and Hong Kong Disneyland. It's a Small World invites Disney guests to hop on board a magical voyage and admire the coming together of continents, countries and cultures from across the globe. The attraction is themed around a vision of global peace and international unity, which is conveyed by 300 audio animatronic dolls representing countries around the world, all singing and dancing to the same song, 'It's a Small World'.
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.
