The whimsical exterior of this attraction features a working clock that strikes quarterly and features dancing figures marking the time. The façade of white and gold buildings is the backdrop to an amazing topiary menagerie. You'll board your boat and enter into this cheerful attraction. Here you'll find audio-animatronic dolls clad in native costumes and stylized animals from around the world. The simplistic and catchy "Small World" tune is sung in different languages as you pass through the diverse lands. During Christmas, this attraction is completely transformed with a holiday theme. The dolls sing a special version of Jingle Bells for guests visiting this "winter wonderland." This classic attraction made its debut at the New York World's Fair and has been entertaining guests ever since.
Disney characters, in the distinctive Mary Blair style, are also integrated into appropriate scenes in the attraction (complete with musical cues from the films, if you listen closely).
