You guys should let me gameshare it.



Disney is marking the 50th anniversary of the It’s a Small World ride at its parks around the globe today, but the attraction didn’t originally debut at any of them.

Developed by Disney “imagineers,” It’s a Small World first opened at the 1964 New York World’s Fair. It was “enjoyed by an estimated 10 million children” there in 1964 and 1965 before anyone ever rode it at Disneyland starting in 1966, according to a Times article on the ride’s debut in Anaheim.

But the Disneyland riders did experience something new: The attraction was expanded by one-third once it made the cross-country move. 

The ceremony marking the ride’s 1966 Disneyland opening sounds like a splashy affair. There were fireworks, 10,000 balloons and a flock of white doves.

Oh, and it was literally splashy: “Water from major oceans and seas around the world was flown to Disneyland, and [Walt] Disney and children from 16 Southern California ethnic groups poured it into Seven SeaWays,” The Times reported.

It’s a Small World and the teacup ride are my two earliest memories of Disneyland, a place I first visited as a 3-year-old. For Throwback Thursday, we encourage you to send your It’s a Small World memories and photos by messaging us here or tweeting them to @latimespast.

Happy birthday, It’s a Small World! Disney offers its own look at the ride’s resident dolls in this video:

To those who have never been to ITS A SMALL WORLD ride at any Disneyland before, I could assure you, you will be singing that song for weeks to come. I forced my family to go there, last time I went. My whole family was a bit upset. But, weeks later, my stepdad kept singing and humming the song haha.
