It’s a small world but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a colorful one! The paint job on Walt Disney World’s most iconic boat ride is now finished! Just in time for the 50th Anniversary festivities to begin, a refreshed color scheme and touch-up have this ride looking better than new.
Back in 2005, “it’s a small world” was refurbished and the team overseeing the work decided to match Disneyland’s version. White and gold are a classic look, but the bright colors are making a comeback! With bold blues, greens, oranges, and purples, these colors are reminiscent of the multicultural celebration that awaits on the ride itself. Guests waiting in line are sure to have their eyes drawn to the sparkling details on each element of the decor.
According to Disney, “it’s a small world” was created for the 1964-1965 New York World’s Fair. Walt Disney himself oversaw the project in support of UNICEF. After the attraction spent 2 seasons there and drew tremendous praise, it was shipped to Disneyland park and has been part of the park since May 28, 1966. The ride was recreated in 1971 for Opening Day at Walt Disney World Resort and has remained popular since its conception. Disney fans around the world have ridden it at their “home” Disney parks, such as Disneyland Paris and Hong Kong Disneyland.
Head over to Magic Kingdom and enjoy the sight of “it’s a small world” in its newly-painted glory. Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary is already looking brighter than ever!
