Disney fans have been anxiously awaiting for the fan-favorite “it’s a small world” Holiday to finally open for the holiday season. This attraction gets a holiday makeover in November and it was supposed to open in time for Merriest Nites last night, however it’s been reported that the opening of this beloved attraction has been delayed due to flooding!
According to the OC Register-“It’s a Small World experienced some flooding that affected machinery used to operate the attraction during the early morning hours on Wednesday, Nov. 10 while Disneyland was closed to the public.” They went on to report that the flooding occurred during the process of refilling the flume.
Many fans experienced disappointment as it is one of the main holiday attractions that most look forward to due to the impressive display of lights and music. If you aren’t familiar with “it’s a small world” Holiday, here is the official description on the Disneyland website:
Set sail along a wondrous wintry waterway transformed with whimsical décor. Behold jubilant regional adornments all along your world tour of good cheer. Listen as the costumed chorus of children sings the classic “It’s a Small World (After All)” song and traditional holiday tunes. Listen for the South Sea mermaids who sing “Jingle Shells” and leave a plate of fish for Santa.
The enchantment begins as you approach the iconic façade, which is adorned with thousands of shimmering lights for the season.
It’s been reported that Disneyland is working as quickly as they can to get the attraction back up and running so Guests can enjoy this popular attraction as the holidays have officially started in the park today! This is personally one of my favorite attractions to visit during the Christmas season and I am hopeful this attraction will be up and running when I visit Merriest Nites next Tuesday (11/16) evening. You won’t want to miss our live stream of the merriest event of the season at Disneyland Resort!
