    "it's a small world" Sing Along

    Some interesting fun from Disneyland Public Relations:

    "it's a small world" Sing Along
    You know the words, "it's small world after all...it's a small, small, world!" Take a ride on the recently reopened classic attraction "it's a small world" at Disneyland in Southern California. See the classic child dolls and keep your eyes peeled for new dolls costumed as some of your favorite Disney and Disney-Pixar characters. And sing along with contestants from the "Yamaha Celebrate Your Music" contest as they perform their own renditions of the famous song!


    Something New to Celebrate! 'it’s a small world’ Returns to Disneyland With New Magic
    A beloved Disneyland attraction returns to Fantasyland on Friday, Feb. 6, when “it’s a small world” opens with some new storytelling magic. With the premiere of a new “Spirit of America” scene, new musical enhancements, and a new look for some of the attraction’s familiar child dolls, “it’s a small world” will once again take guests of all ages on “the happiest cruise that ever sailed.”


    “it’s a small world” History & Fun Facts
    “it’s a small world” was originally conceived as an exhibit that would benefit UNICEF, the United Nations Children’s Fund, at the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair. Because UNICEF is dedicated to the welfare of children all over the world, the theme for “it’s a small world” became an international voyage celebrating the happy spirit of children everywhere.


    Celebrate the Sounds of the Disneyland Resort
    Listen to the sounds that bring the Disneyland Resort to life. From the boilers inside the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror to the drum beats of the Disneyland Band, every sound happens for a reason. In this edition of the Official Disneyland Resort Audio Podcast, you'll meet the people who use sound effects to transport Guests to another time and place, and hear the story of a band that turned a two-week gig into a 54-year run. As always, we take you behind the scenes to talk with the people who make the magic. So, sit back, listen and celebrate the sounds of the Happiest Place on Earth.

    Watch the pianist/singer near the end of the video. Somehow, the video's been flipped or shot in a mirror. The higher notes should be at the RIGHT end of the keyboard.

    Re: "it's a small world" Sing Along

    I think it is amazing that It's A Small World, which is just a theme park ride song, is so popular and is enjoyed outside of the context of the ride itself as a regular popular song.

    I don't know if it is because it's a small world is a great ride, if It's A Small World is a great song, or if it is a combination of the two.

    It really is a great song, and one that I don't mind having stuck in my head all day long!

    I'm more like Scar in my opinion of the Small World song: "Anything besides THAT!"

    Even Yo Ho Yo Ho A Pirates Life for me, Grim Grinning Ghosts, or the Tiki Room!

    I don't think these people are playing "it's a small world" for love of the song...

    There was a competition from Yamaha at the end of last year that involved playing/singing that song. Winners get a trip to Disneyland to perform and about $1,000 towards Yamaha instruments.

    The site is still active even though the competition is over : Celebrate your music with Yamaha!
