The world’s second “ it’s a small world ” attraction debuted at Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort on the park’s opening day, October 1, 1971.
The attraction’s queue features a white and gold facade structure, inspired by the original exterior of the attraction at Disneyland park. The interior of the Magic Kingdom Park attraction features a total of 289 dolls, 147 toys and 36 animated props. Guests who embark on a trip through “it’s a small world” will travel through six scenes, including Europe, Asia, Africa, Central/South America, South Pacific Islands, and a Finale scene. The attraction’s theme song can be heard in a total of five different languages – English, Italian, Japanese, Spanish and Swedish – throughout the attraction.
Check back this afternoon for another sing-along video celebrating “it’s a small world.” Join the celebration by creating your own “it’s a small world” doll at SmallWorld50.com.
