Disneyland Updates “it’s a small world” Dolls to Make More Inclusive
We’ve got some interesting news for our friends on the West Coast. Disneyland theme park announced that there are a few new additions to the beloved classic attraction “it’s a small world.” In addition, to the fabulous holiday overlay that transforms the ride each Christmas season, the ride now features dolls in wheelchairs, a move to honor guests and cast members with disabilities.
According to a piece appearing on NBC Los Angeles, the dolls will be featured in both the Latin American and final scenes of the boat ride.
Kim Irvine director at Walt Disney Imagineering said in a statement that these new additions to “it’s a small world” build upon the legacy of representation in the ride.
As you can see from the photos shared by NBC, the dolls can be seen holding songbooks for classic holiday carols including “Jingle Bells” and “Deck the Halls.”
We can confirm that the new dolls of “it’s a small world” will also be featured at Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World and in Disneyland Paris beginning in 2023! “it’s a small world” opened at Disneyland in 1966 after making its debut at the New York World’s Fair in 1964.
