I enjoyed it so much more as a kid and it is a little annoying now for me to listen too it but there is no doubt this ride is a true classic, it has stood the test of time. Thanks for the tour.

I think the fact that every Disney Magic Kingdom has a version of this ride is testimony to its durability; the one at Hong Kong Disney is particularly nice, and California's "Small World Holiday" is a very well done Christmas version.

I'll never forget seeing the original at the NY Worlds Fair in 1964. I was in 3rd grade and it was all very exciting for me!

I was talking with my dad about Its a Small World and he said he saw the original at the Worlds Fair. He was 13 at the time, wish he had pictures I would have loved to see that!

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?

Having Seven Dwarfs Mine Train possibly opening during my trip in May is really messing with my trip planning in a good way! :lmao:

What I'm wondering, is if they're going to put one in the new Shanghai Disneyland?
It's not on the (currently?) released list of attractions and services in and outside
of the park, in the Fantasy Land list. No mention of it at all.

:(

But there's certainly enough space for it to be built, if they want one.

And I can't wait to see and ride this great looking coaster-dark ride
based on the Dwarfs Mine adventures. Hi Ho indeed!

The Disney Parks Blog posted a little preview of the Dwarfs themselves on You Tube.

(I saw the new video earlier on another site - the whole thing with the AAs and the face mapping
looks awesome. I was wondering if the 'facial features' would be good and work, and they look like they are!)
