A boat Dark Ride with one continuous theme song. Dolls dressed as children from many nationalities sing the ride's theme, which has been seen as a message of tolerance and understanding for generations.
I did like hunting for the "updated" dolls Disney added a few years back. It made this venerable diversion slightly more interesting. - James Rao
Featuring the worlds most famous theme park song, small world is a delightful ride. The ride is lengthy, relaxing and perfect for a mid day rest. The scenes are nicely set up and I really like how they included Disney characters in the attraction. - Manny Barron
Our family enjoy's the ride but! we were disappointed when an outside company was hired to re-record the music. I think this was in the late 1990's. The original soundtrack had that "magical" quality that made this ride so appealing. When the music was "cleaned up" with high tech equipment, it lost the warmth and magic and the nostalgia. Our family noticed it right away. I discussed this with some Disney employees and they felt the same way. It's just about impossible to re-record music from the 50's & 60's and still retain the original warmth and feeling. Since then, we have not enjoyed this ride nearly as much as we used to. - Frank Dookun
I like this ride a lot, the song is soo catchy. - daniel reyes
The outside and gardens are brilliant. The inside is nice too, but I was not impressed with the interior scenes as I was with WDW's version. - Skipper Adam
Went on this ride with the little cousins and it was a big hit, not only because my two year old cousin was so thrilled that he "danced" while on the ride, but it was also a perfect opportunity when my dad and I returned alone later (after the fireworks show) to give our tiring legs a break. A very pleasant ride :) - Teddy D.
Liked seeing the movie characters embedded in the ride. - Amy Tupper
