    Is Small World really coming back in December?

    I keep hearing people say Small World is coming back 11/28/2008.

    Others say it isn't going to be back till next year-- 2009.

    What is the official word?

    Re: Is Small World really coming back in December?

    It appears from the posts of many contributers in this forum that IASW is never coming back. It appears that it is being replaced with a new ride that looks a lot like IASW, but is themed in such a manner as to remove any remaining sheen of good taste and artistic quality. So in answer to your question, never.

    isaw should open in November 2008, but it will open as the holiday overlay version. The regular version of iasw will not open probably till late January / Early Feb 2009.

    OK, and so....does that mean that whatever changes are made won't be visible during the Holiday version?


    Or, will the Holiday version incorporate the new changes ?

    I am certainly hoping that if all goes well, I will be able to see the Holiday Verson of IASW in early December.

    Thats an unknown at this point I think if you are referring to the rainforest and Disney characters changes. The main reason for the closure is the replacement of the boats and a new flume installation plus general cleanup. Those changes will be in place when it re-opens.

    As far as the Disney characters and the rainforest, I am hoping those don't happen at all, but if they do, I don't think there is any idea yet if those are part of the holiday overlay or just the new normal version which will open in Jan / Feb 2009.

    Is it closed now?

    If no, when is it expected to close? Kind of a bummer if I miss it this June.

    Yes, that's what I'm wondering......how the Holiday theme will impact the Rainforest.

    Will we see a Rainforest covered in Tinsel? Will the new Disney characters be wearing Santa outfits?

    I'm just wondering if, or how, they plan to incorporate the Holiday theme with all the new characters and changes.

    The rainforest was always completely covered during the holiday layover. It'll give them more time to remove the bulldozers from the forest.
