Jungle Cruise, Pirates, Haunted Mansion, Country Bear Jamboree, Peter Pan, Dumbo's. All rides that have been around for various years, and while some of the above have the need for a change, update or refurb, none of these compare to the drab, boring and creepiness of It's a Small World (IASW).

This is a slow, painful journey through the nations with the same ridiculously annoying song played throughout but sometimes in different languages. Now for educational (vaguely) and nostalgic reasons, I don't understand how anyone can enjoy this. It has become a pretty famous ride for Disney for some reason, meaning that more people actually queue for this than you'd expect. Most I would say will leave Magic Kingdom with the song firmly etched into their heads and they will hum the tune all the way back to their hotel. That is not a good thing at all! The tune reminds me of a sinister tune from a horror movie. Pretty creepy especially with the dolls in the ride.

It's just boring, irritating, and it's my Nan's favourite ride. Says it all really
