It’s a Small World at the Magic Kingdom

Florida Guide > Disney Parks

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.

This is the haunting tune to one of the most popular rides for Disney’s youngest guests and their parents/carers. Originally built at the magic Kingdom in 1966 it has recently undergone restoration and been returned to its original brilliance, with a new sound system and lighting.

As you approach the ride you see turrets and towers and a huge clock with a smiling face that swings to and fro and dolls that come in and out of the clock every 15 minutes and a bell rings to tell you the time. The gardens contain topiary animals.

The ride takes you on a boat along a canal, winding through displays of animated dolls of children of the world. The ride passes through each country, the small world song being translated into the different languages.

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.

As you glide along in your boat passing through the different countries and scenes, you pass through the Arctic/North pole, where the dolls are dressed in the national costume to complete the scene, next comes Europe, Asia, Africa, South America, the South seas where the song is sung as if its underwater with gurgling as if by mermaids, North America and then you pass into the final room where all the dolls are dressed in white and all singing together in English.

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.

The ride lasts for 12-14 minutes and the little ones are mesmerised by it. The look on their faces is amazing and heart-warming.

It’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all, and it’s a small world after all it’s a small small world. This haunting song will stay in your head for ages, and you will catch yourself singing it as you walk around the magic Kingdom for the rest of the day!

Here are the lyrics so you don’t forget!

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!
