If you like It’s a Small World at Disneyland, you’d better get there to ride this weekend…
This holiday weekend marks your last chance to ride It’s a Small World at Disneyland before the beloved boat ride undergoes a major overhaul.
The classic attraction goes down for a 10-month rehab starting Jan. 22, 2008, to replace the original flume and fleet of boats used at the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair, where the ride debuted.
Disney Imagineers are still trying to decide what – if any – changes and additions to make to the characters and scenes in the 14-minute show. The new Small World ride at Hong Kong Disneyland adds 30 Disney characters to the attraction (including Mulan, Peter Pan and Aladdin).
The Anaheim ride’s long hibernation is scheduled to end Nov. 28, 2008, according to Disney officials.
