It’s a Small World


It’s the “happiest cruise that ever sailed”, and of course it’s found at the most magical place on Earth!  It’s a Small World is located in Fantasyland, and it is a must do attraction!  You’ll enjoy the sweet children from around the world who sing the happy tune while you sail along, visiting many countries from around the world.  Suddenly, as you exit, everyone is dressed the same, yet enjoying their cultural differences.

  • It’s a Small World is a great attraction for the whole family.  There is no height requirement, and taking your little one for a sail on the “happiest cruise that ever sailed” is a memory you’ll always cherish. 
  • The ride lasts about 10.5 minutes, and the wait time is minimal.  Boats load quickly, and you can relax in the air conditioning.
  • Each boat holds about twenty people.
  • If your boat is stopped in a “traffic jam”, make sure you keep your little ones seated.  Enjoy the sights and sounds, along with the air conditioning, before venturing back out to tour the Magic Kingdom.

It’s a Small World is an attraction you’ll want to visit again and again.  Everyone in your family will love it, and you’ll find yourself returning to it again and again!

Quick Tip:  When your boat is ready to sail, look up.  You’ll see a window to Pinocchio’s Village Haus, and you can wave to the guests eating inside.

Overall, we give this attraction an “A+”.

    Hey guys its me Miliana! My 3 year old daughter Sahvana loves this ride. The ride is great for children 6 and under but it gets pretty boring for anyone older then that. My 11 year old son Chase despises this ride and so does my husband, Riko. The tune can get stuck in your head but children love it. Overall I would rate it a C+. I hate the boat jams and my neice, Lindy knows what i’m talking about.

    What is there not to love about ‘it’s a small world’.. seriously, it’s a classic family favorite, the staple of what was and is Disney.. Yes the song gets stuck in your head for a while, but it’s the sweetest thing ever, and especially for kids when they see the little dolls and all the fun, colorful, exciting ways Disney has depicted all the countries, it’s a learning experience to. I think parents should make it a fun like game to go through the ride and try to have your kids guess the countries. In my opinion, it’s great! Yes it’s not an exhilarating roller coaster ride like Space Mountain, Splash Mountain or Big Thunder Mountain.. but if you go on it with that mentality, then you won’t enjoy the ride.. It’s a nice, relaxing, cute, fun ride that the whole family can enjoy.. besides, a little variety goes far, not everyone wants fast going, heart pounding rides ALL the time. 😉
