While on the subject of one of my sentimental favorites, I wanted to use your collective knowledge to answer a question that has bugged me for years: in the Orlando attraction, where is Canada represented? We have looked for years, first as a child, and now as a parent. Can someone solve this eternal riddle for me? Thanks!

Canada is the very 1st scene. The mounty is there before you exit the room and there's a totem pole type thing above his head.

When I was in the MKCP, a CM who worked at 'It's a Small World' told me, "Everyone who is boarding the ride is singing the song. And everyone has a different set of lyrics."

According to multiple online sources, Canada is represented in the "North Pole" portion representing Canada & Scandinavia

I've managed to avoid this ride in the Magic Kingdom now for about 15 years since my children are now in their 20s and 30s, but that streak is about to end now that the grandkids are old enough to ride it.

Maybe earplugs will help when when we go to the MK with the grandkids this spring?

Just go one and have some fun, Grandpa! I'm 32 and go on every time I visit.

Why no exterior picture of WDW's Small World? Cause it's UGLY! I wish we had the prettier facade. The Toyko facade it beautiful and I love Disney Land's as well.

I used to enjoy It's a Small World quite a bit. It was a good break from the heat with a relatively short line, and you could get off your feet and relax.

...and then there was the time when my daughter who was then 5 years old wanted to go on it 3 times in a row. The first time my wife rode it with us. The second time my wife excused herself for a bathroom break, and then we couldn't find her after the ride (This was in the days before cellphones made us all instantly accessible.), so my daughter who was tired of waiting and near a meltdown asked for a third ride. I had no choice.

After that ride, we found my wife, and because it was the end of the day, we decided to go back to the hotel room, and I carried my daughter out of the park on my shoulders - while she hummed and sang what she could remember about the theme song right above my ears.

...and during the monorail ride,

...and on the tram out to the parking lot,

...and in the car until she fell asleep.

They say insanity is hereditary - you get it from your kids. It's true.
