This classic Disney attraction is a legacy to Walt Disney himself. It’s a Small World is a gentle boat ride that has long been a favorite among guest of all ages. Located in Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom theme park this ride was created as a tribute to the children of the world for the UNICEF pavilion at the 1964/65 World’s Fair.

As you make your way down the boat ramp, guest can check out the silhouettes of the world’s most recognizable landmarks. They are decorated with different textures in white paint and highlighted in gold. Make sure to pay attention to the clock tower with the “seesawing” clock face, for every 15 minutes there are surprises.

As your boat serenely glides along the Seven Seaways canal guest will be entertained by 289 Audio-Animatronics Doll Figures, 147 toys and 36 animated props all dancing on the shores of the Seven Seaways . The seven contents are represented as guest pass through each room that has the Audio-Animatronics dolls outfitted in clothing with props that reflect their respective cultures.

These Audio-Animatronic dolls are dressed in costumes representing more than 100 nations, sing “it’s a small world” song lyrics in 5 languages, allowing boundaries to dissolve and continents become connected through a singular song.
