After riding the It's a Small World attraction at Disneyland it's really hard to get that darn song out of your head. It really is catchy, even if you've heard it many times. This ride remains a lot of fun.

This attraction is so much better then the one in Orlando! The different scenes around the attractions are beautiful, and the fact that you load into the boat outside and go inside through the attraction was so cool! A must do attraction in Disneyland!

My wife and kids love Small World, and this original version is better than Florida's version. Lengthy ride, and very well done. Music has a habit of staying in your head for a while after though, lol

This is such a fun, relaxing ride! It takes quite awhile on a fun boat ride out of the sun to go through the whole thing! It's a great way to get out of the sun.

You visit any Disney Park, you have to do ‘It’s a small World’ ride. Quintessential, the music won’t get out of your head for days and all round the world. Then apparently they mix at the end all dressed in white. Read in to that...More

Even though the song will get stuck in your head you can’t go to Disneyland and not ride It’s A Small World. It is an easy water ride showcasing cultures from around the world and gets you out of the sun for awhile. We got...More

A great place to relax and just enjoy the ride.... on a hot day, it also offers some heat relief. Fabricated by the Disney Studios in Burbank, the ride was originally called Children of the World when it opened at the 1964 New York World's...More
