“It’s a Small World” is a boat ride in the Fantasyland area of many Disney theme parks around the world, including Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California, Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort in Bay Lake, Florida, Tokyo Disneyland, Disneyland Paris, and Hong Kong Disneyland. The first version of “It’s a Small World” debuted at the New York World’s Fair in 1964 before moving to Disneyland.
The ride has more than 300 audio-animatronic dolls dressed in traditional clothes from different cultures around the world. They dance and sing the attraction’s title song, which is about world peace. Time.com says that “It’s a Small World” by the Sherman Brothers is the song that has been played in public the most. In recent years, the Small World attractions at the different Disney parks have been updated to include Disney characters, but in a style similar to Mary Blair’s original design from the 1960s. The original characters have also been kept.
Children of the World was made at the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank by WED Enterprises. It was then shipped to the Pepsi-sponsored UNICEF pavilion at the 1964 New York World’s Fair, where Rolly Crump’s kinetic sculpture The Tower of the Four Winds, a 120-foot mobile that keeps spinning, stood at the entrance. It was added to four attractions that were already in the works: the Magic Skyway (sponsored by Ford), Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln (sponsored by Illinois), The Carousel of Progress (sponsored by General Electric), and CircleVision 360 (sponsored by Kodak). These attractions were used by Disney to sponsor, fund, and test ideas for ride systems and new entertainment that would be moved to Disneyland after the World’s Fair ended in 1966.
Mary Blair was in charge of the whimsical design and color scheme of the attraction. Blair was the art director for Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, and Peter Pan, all of which were animated movies made by Disney. Scenes and characters were made by Marc Davis, and his wife, Alice Davis, made the dolls’ clothes. The toys and other figures on display were made by Rolly Crump. Blaine Gibson made the designs and sculptures for the dolls that move. Walt helped Gibson and Greg S. Marinello come up with the designs for the dolls’ faces. Each face of an animated doll is exactly the same shape.
Arrow Development did a lot of work on the design of the boats that carry people and the system that moves them. Arrow Development staff filed two patents that were given to The Walt Disney Company. The patents show passenger boats and vehicle guidance systems with a lot of the same features that were later used on the Disneyland version of the attraction. People say that the company made the installation at Disneyland.
