    Hi Rick , please no need to apologize for the song LOL. Haveing never been to DisneyWorld and being a fixture at Disneyland, I couldnt even immagine Its a Small World without the outside que. Does WDW not have the topiaries or the clock as well ? Half of the enjoyment here in california is the outside que, facade and the gardens. As for the question of the week, I would guess most might like to have our Matterhorn but I dont believe that will ever happen because its never been reproduced anywhere else either. I may be totally wrong though, I know many really miss Mr Toad and that same crowd may really love the Alice in Wonderland attraction we have also. Thanks for the vieos! As soon as my little boys are a little bit older we will be making our first trip to WDW and people like you and my friend Amanda Tinney are paving the way for us.

    I would bring Casey Jr. Circus Train to WDW. When my children were little, they absolutely loved this ride. I must admit, I really enjoyed it too! Thanks, Rick!


  3. Debbie Bolen says:

    Oh – thanks – now I need to go back and see the WDW Small World video to compare – LOL. Just kidding!
    Although this isn’t one of my must do every trip, I do enjoy it, especially when traveling with little ones. I love seeing the look on their faces as they enjoy the trip thru the land.
    I haven’t been to Disneyland in over 20 years, but the one thing I remember about Small World in CA is the facade was awesome, but standing in line out in the sun was hot.
    Since I haven’t been to Disneyland is so many years (it was still just one park then), I really don’t know what I’d like to bring to WDW. I think I like each having their own highlights!
    Love the video, as usual! Keep up the great work! You have an awesome job!

    Love the song, makes ya smile as you sing or hum it! Thanks Rick, It’s A Small World in DL is much different with the outside que, I actually liked it a little better, seeing the gardens and train, pretty cool! I would like to see Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride back at WDW, but that’s wishful thinking. I know I’d like to have Cars Land in WDW, I wish the Disney imagineers would bring it to both coasts! 18 days till my long weekend in WDW, I am so thankful for that! Keep smilin’ my friend!


  5. I like thrill rides so I am going to say California Screamin, BUT I would also like to see Indiana Jones™ Adventure and the classic Matterhorn Bobsleds.


  6. Gracie N says:

    I think the Matterhorn Bobsleds would be a fun addition to Walt Disney World. I have always enjoyed this attraction in Disneyland. Thank you for a fun video, Rick.


  7. Carrie Freistuhler says:

    Well, I have never been to Disneyland so I don’t speak from experience but I think the Matterhorn would be what I would want to ride most.
    Really like seeing the Disneyland rides. Thanks.


  8. Peggy Hickey says:

    I have never been to Disney Land, just Disney World, but i did see the original at the Worlds Fair. I noticed some updates with a lot of Disney characters in the present DisneyLand version.
    I’d love to see the Indiana Jones Adventure ride, and Pinocchio’s Adventure, and I wish we could have My. Toad back on the east coast.
    I love seeing the Disney Land rides, so thanks again for sharing them with us.


  9. John Broadwater says:

    I think that the subs would be great to bring to Disney World. Great show some day we will get out to the west coast to see disneyland. thank again.


  10. Jeanne Cundiff says:

    Hi Rick!
    Thank you for showing this video. I love all the topiaries. I would love to see the Matterhorn in Florida.


  11. Penny Serrato says:

    I can’t answer the question I have never been to DL. I do however have a question of my own. When you first board the boats at Small World DL I heard the instructions for keeping you arms legs etc in in English and I think I heard it in at least 3 more languages, my question is how many different languages do they do that in? I think I heard English, German, French and Spanish but i thought I heard 1 more. Thanks for the song in my head and the video LOL.



  12. Steve Rydzyk says:

    Hey Rick,

    It’s a small world after all….It’s a small world aft…sorry, I regress. Great video as always. The attraction that is at Disneyland that I would love to see in Disney World has to be the Indiana Jones Adventure. Queue is awesome, and the ride is fantastic with a little pyro. Don’t look into the eye of MARA!

    Hi Rick,
    I was at DL last year at this time so thanks for having this video this week!

    I really enjoyed the new version of this attraction at DL because they added characters from Disney and Disney movies. As you rode through you could find then with a guide that was given to you.

    Now what I think everyone would like to have at DW would be the Indiana Jones Adventure Ride. It was exciting!

    Another attraction that would be great is the production of Aladdin. It was excellent.

    I also wish DW would get the Nemo submarines.

    Thanks again for memories!


  14. Jeff Barkee says:

    Another vote for the Indiana Jones Adventure. I always attempt to ride it multiple time when at Disneyland.
    I’d love to see it replace the Indiana Jones Stunt show at Hollywood Studios. I saw the stunt show almost 20 years ago, and although I enjoyed it, I’ve had no urge to go back and see it since. That wouldn’t be the case if Indy’s ride was put in there.


  15. Robert Nordmark says:

    And here is a third vote for the Indiana Jones Adventure. I too would also like to see the Aladin Production at Disney World.

    Rick, no need to apologize for the Small World theme song. It was great to hear it and it was great to see the video. Now I want to go ride the attraction again.



  16. Linda Miller says:

    Thanks for sharing “It’s A Small World” from Disneyland. I saw the original ride when I was a little girl at the 1964 World’s Fair and have been a fan ever since. I didn’t realize there were so many Disney characters included in the Disneyland version.

    My vote would be for the Matterhorn Bobsleds. I think they would be a nice addition to Walt Disney World. I haven’t had the pleasure of visiting Disneyland yet, but maybe next year!

    Thanks again for the great videos. I look forward to them every week!!

  17. Jim Minekime says:

    I’d love to see Alice in Wonderland at Disney World. Thanks for putting on all these videos of Disneyland, Rick, for those of us who can’t get to the west coast. I was surprised at how different Small World is at Disneyland. I was also pleased to see the Disney characters incorporated so well into the theming of the the attraction.



  18. Brad S says:

    We just got back from a great trip to Walt Disney World yesterday and have to say I still enjoy the original It’s A Small World attraction at Disneyland with the outside que lines and the clock outside compared to the inside lines and clock at WDW. I would really enjoy if they brought the Indiana Jones ride from Disneyland to Adventureland at WDW.


  19. Erin says:

    Having grown up with the west coast version I am looking forward to the east coast in December. I have a question, a heard from a friend that Disney has had to make modifications to It’s a Small World. Apparently due to the ever growing obesity in the US the boats were scraping along the bottom from too much weight. Has anyone else heard of this issue?


  20. Joanne S says:

    I haven’t seen the west coast version in years, it is still great! Any real Disney fan will sing that song in their heads at any given time, whether they want to or not, and not complain about it. It’s a classic. Great video! Thanks for the smile. 🙂

    I would like to have the new Nemo submarines at WDW.


  21. Mayra Lopez says:

    Great video!!! I love this attraction, but I haven’t seen the Disneyland version.

    The attraction I would like to see at Disney World is Indiana Jones Adventure.


  22. Tammy in Dexter says:

    I would love to have the Indiana jones ride. Thanks Tammy
