It's a small world after all
It's a small world after all
It's a small world after all
It's a small, small world

It's a world of laughter, a world of tears
It's a world of hopes and a world of fears
There's so much that we share
That it's time we're aware
It's a small world after all

It's a small world after all
It's a small world after all
It's a small world after all
It's a small, small world

There is just one moon and one golden sun
And a smile means friendship to everyone
Though the mountains divide
And the oceans are wide
It's a small world after all

It's a small world after all
It's a small world after all
It's a small world after all
It's a small, small world

Yes, let's update the song with Tears For Fears "Everybody wants to rule the world" - or some German oom pah ditty.

My three year old girl absolutely loves that ride. I don't think it's intolerably bad, and certainly not the worst in Disney history. Yes, I'm looking at you, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea...

I've lived in Florida most of my life and have been to Disney countless times. But I've never set foot on that ride. I don't think I need that experience.

The last time my wife and I went to Disney World, we had the Extra Magic Hours at our resort so we could stay late at the park. We rode It's A Small World at 2 AM with no one else on it, which felt like some Zombieland post-apolcalyptic nightmare. It was creepy.

But then again, my Disney bubble popped a longass time ago.

I love the whole pirates chasing wenches for plates of food, though. One step forward, two steps back.

We did Disney's 'Grad Night' when I graduated, they opened the park back up at midnight for HS graduates, until something like 6 am. I didn't sleep the night before graduation, except about 45 minutes, didn't sleep the night of graduation, then the next day we got on the bus to CA. Didn't sleep that day, and so I was pretty punchy by 6 am of the 3rd morning. As a result, the last ride we went on was 'It's a Small World', since we had a few minutes to kill at the end of the night. As a result of being so farking tired, I fell asleep in the darlk spots in between the rooms and got jolted awake by that farking song every time we entered a new room. It's very traumatic... That song just goes on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on  and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on  and on and on and on and on and on and on  and on and on and on and on and on and on  and on and on and on and on and on and on  and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on  and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on  and on and on and on  and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on  and on and on and on  and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on  and on and on and on  and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on  and on and on and on  and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on  and on and on and on  and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on  and on and on and on  and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on  and on and on and on  and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on  and on and on and on  and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on  and on and on and on  and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on  and on and on and on  and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on  and on and on and on  and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on  and on and on and on  and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on...

That's what it was like in my post above... Deserted, freaky, and that SONG...

That damned song should be banned as psychological torture under the rules of the Geneva convention.

It's cute, kind of a throwback in terms of the feel of the ride, and that song does get kind of annoying before it's over, but personally, I think the hatred of it is a bit overblown. It's kind of boring for an adult, but little kids get kind of excited going through. Honestly, I like it more for watching my daughter's reaction than the ride itself.

People who take flash photos on Disney rides should be dragged out back of the park and beaten with rubber hoses before being banned for life from ever returning.

Just went to Disneyland last week while on vacation.  That ride was closed.  Guess there were getting it ready for this week.

Fun times.

Yeah, that is annoying. At least for mine, my Lumia phone was able to do low-light well enough that I didn't need to use a flash.

It's a world of acne, a world of germs.
It's your brand new dog coming down with worms.
It's the notes being played
By a cockroach parade,
It's the real world after all.

It's a world of ulcers, a world of cysts.
It's the hole in the road that you never miss.
It's the cheap underwear
Creeping up to your hair,
It's the real world after all.

It's the real world after all,
It's the real world after all,
It's the real world after all,
It's the real world after all.

It's a world of hunger, a world of sin.
It's a million products to keep you thin.
It's machinery exhaust
Causing air to be lost.
It's the real world after all.

It's a world of stark mediocrity,
It's a world of mindless activity.
It's the little white lie
Inside Mom's apple pie,
It's the real world after all.

It's the real world after all,
Cold hard steel world after all,
Slimy eel world after all,
Well, it's the real world after all.

It's a world that's black and a world that's blue,
And you must duck logic to get you through.
It's the sudden attack 
Of a knife in your back,
It's the real world after all.

It's the real world after all, 
Spinning wheel world after all,
Cold hard steel world after all, 
Well, it's the real world after all.

It's a good ride to go on late at night, with no line, and you just want to sit and don't mind listening to crappy music.

Funny story. My wife and I, along with two other couples, decided to go on Small World just before closing. We were all sitting on the right side of the boat. As soon as we hit the first corner (left turn) the boat tipped to the side and water started pouring in. The first two couples in front got pretty wet, but my wife and I were riding in back and did not. I've never knew one of those boats could tip like that.
 
2014-04-10 03:23:44 PM
My daughter. She insisted on going on that damn ride. It was her 4th birthday, so I had no choice but to agree.

Now she's an International Studies major. Thanks a lot, Disney.
 
2014-04-10 03:26:07 PM
In defense of the ride, it should be noted that the air conditioning in that building is world-class.

On a really hot day, it's totally worth putting up with that insipid earworm music.

Incoming CSB.

I got my moniker because during my 20s I spent basically my entire time bouncing around the world both for work and for play. The odd thing was I had never been to Disneyland. So one time after returning from three months in the pacific islands I decided to correct that oversight. Anyway, I got on this ride and I spent the whole time singing the verse out loud but twisted, "It's NOT a small world after all."

People looked at me weird but I had fun.

Excited to jump off of the ride. Only reason I went on it twice was my parents forced me to the second time we visited the park. It was horrible the first.

It's a world of violence
a world of mistrust
where you die like a dog
just for riding the bus
and the militants fight
on the left and the right
it's a third world after all!

I can't remember which comedian said it, but he posed the idea to give every person 4 softballs to see how many dolls you can peg off during the ride. I would wait in line for that.

I have a relevant CSB.  I was kicked out of Disneyland for sinking one of the boats on that ride.

not asked to never return or anything, but me and the kids I was there with as part of our summer-camp field trip were escorted out, and given (I kid you not) mickey-mouse shaped pamphlets explaining the things that we may have potentially done to get kicked out.

They just did a major overhaul of Small World to account for all the ham planets.  The old, small boats couldn't handle the loads and would frequently get stuck requiring excess sized passengers to be manually removed from the ride.  We just went on the updated ride and the boats are rock solid now.

I enjoyed that ride. I was 5 years old and already destined to become an engineer. I spent about 90% of my time on that ride checking out the mechanical systems that ran the ride.  Apparently I annoyed my mother enough that she still tells the story of how I didn't 'just enjoy the ride' but to be honest that was probably the only way that I would have enjoyed it.  I'm pretty much only one step away from model train or train simulator enthusiast as an adult so anything on rails was like crack with a side order of crack for 5 year old me.

As a kid back in the 60's, my dad was kicked out twice. Once for falling off the raft on the "Tom Sawyer" ride. Another time for jumping off a ride and kicking down some cutouts.

He became a successful attorney.

This makes me really sad.  I hope they add a fast-food joint to the ride, and just have the boat pull over while everyone on it orders crappy fast food marked up 2500% for the 'novelty' of getting it while hearing that terrible song.

Man, that's not fair. To become an attorney, I have to try harder I guess.  Next time i'm there, I'm going to kick a costumed character in the balls and teabag it if I can.

I was about 4 the one and only time I went to Disney, I wasn't terribly impressed by the ride. Actually, I wasn't particularly thrilled by any of it because I didn't get to do any of the height restricted rides and the rest were fun enough but didn't blow me away. Never felt the need to ask my parents to take me back.

speaking of drinking, I would pay any amount of money to get very very very stoned and then ride it at 2 AM.  Preferably with a very very very naked Sofia Vergara next to me, and a some gorditas in between us.

When I die and get my own personal heaven, that is exactly what it will be.  minus the music and the puppets and the enclosed space and anything disney-related.

you and I are a bit of kinderd souls in that regard.. I spent a great deal of my childhood hanging out Kings Dominion in Virginia and being the son of a mechanical engineer I knew some things about how the stuff worked, and lets face it, ride a ride enough times and you start to pay attention to little details, like how something would start happening once the boat passed by a sensor looking thing...

that stuff never left my imagination, years later, my first real job would turn out to be as an apprentance for an industrial controls and automations firm through my fathers mechanical engineering firm.. eventually I found my self traveling the world fixing and updating the controls systems for industrial machinery. long story short.. that shop closed up under me and I found myself working in a brewery managing and maintaining all the packaging equipment.

that was 15 years ago....

if the brewery gig hadnt fell into my lap the very afternoon I laid myself off? I was going to send my resume to all the amusement parks in the country because I love that shiat

Hey awesome. I worked for two years in a brewery bottling plant.  I'm in the pulp and paper industry now (we make consumables for paper making) basically just doing project management.  I don't get to play with the toys very often anymore but I used to spend whole days in the warehouse catwalks moving and adjusting reflectors and laser sensors.  We had a really long conveyor line and until modular conveyor with built in rollers were invented we used to have to control conveyor pressure to prevent breakage.  The roller stuff was great though. I got to add as many zones as I wanted.
