Children from around the world were on hand for the opening of It’s A Small World. Walt asked each of them to bring a small container of water from a local body of water. These were poured into the attraction’s flume before the ride opened.
And if you can’t stand It’s A Small World, you can still thank it for one thing. Because It’s A Small World was such a hit at the New York World’s Fair (over ten million ride tickets sold), and since the constantly dispatching boats kept the line moving, the plans for Pirates of the Caribbean were changed from being a walk-through attraction to a boat ride. Without Small World, Pirates would be a very different experience today.
Just don’t go overboard with your appreciation. Not too many people will enjoy your rendition of ♫It’s a small world after all♫ during the cannon fight between the Wicked Wench and the Spanish fort.
