Boat ride

Opening Date:
Apr 15, 1983

One of Fantasyland’s headline attractions, It’s a Small World is based on an attraction that was originally developed by Disney for the 1964 World’s Fair in New York. Subsequently moved to Disneyland in California, the ride has proven to be an enduring favourite and clones have been built in Florida, Paris and Hong Kong as well at Tokyo Disneyland.

After boarding in an outdoor station, guests take an indoor boat ride through a series of scenes based around the different countries of the world. These are populated by more than 300 audio-animatronic dolls, all of which features child-like features and cheerful expressions. The journey is accompanied by one of Disney’s most famous theme tunes, which is sung in multiple languages to match the current scene.
