Does anyone know if there have been any pics posted of the Small World rehab work? I'd love to see what the new load area looks like! Being a Disneylander, I was suprised and disapointed with the Magic Kingdom's iasw and its odd indoor load area!
Hahahaha, if there's anything actually worse than a bad painting of the Small World facade stuffed into an indoor queue area, it's a scale model of the Small World facade stuffed into an indoor queue area.
On my first trip to WDW in 1996 after so many trips to Disneyland, I stood in open mouthed horror when we entered it's a small world. I know the color stylings were don by Mary Blair but boy was it....well...ugly!!! Of course I grew to get used to it. I really like the look of the repainted facade. It will brighten it up in there. It is to bad they couldn't add a fancy glass roof ala the Crystal Palace and get some small trees and shrubs planted in there as well.
I'm gonig back to the World at the end of March, so looking forward to seeing this ride in its after rehab look (crossing fingers that they don't delay it). Pictures probably don't do it justice yet, but its the ride I'm most looking forward to in the Magic Kingdom this tiem around due to a promising rehab.
Thank You Kyle! I should have asked sooner! You Rock! Much better than the dated look it had...WDW's small world always seemed like it was missing stuff... At Disneyland every space is used and full of dolls or sets... WDW seemed to have alot op space between dolls and Sets! I love the California facade much better than those strange pictures of kids in ethnic costumes on the walls!
