it's a small world is currently open with its holiday overlay. During this time the attracition is thoroughly redecorated for Christmas and the music is changed.
Perhaps the most divisive ride in all the Disney theme parks, "it's a small world" has permeated the general culture more than any other attraction. Originally designed for the 1964 World's Fair in New York City, "it's a small world" moved to Disneyland in 1966 and has since been something every visitor has to do at least once. Whether to do it ever again after that is a decision each person has to make on their own. Travelling in small boats with an endless score of variations on the song "it's a small world (after all)" guests pass approximately 300 animatronic dolls representing the many cutlures from around the world. The very exterior of the ride is an attraction with its complex cuckoo clock going off every 15 minutes and topiary cut to animal shapes.
