It's a Small World After All by kevinbolk It's a Small World After All by kevinbolk
Read the newest "I'm My Own Mascot" here: [link]

A couple weeks ago I made my first trip to Walt Disney World in Florida and finally got to experience the "It's A Small World" ride which was designed by one of my favorite artists, Mary Blair (who celebrates her 100th birthday today. Happy Birthday, Mary!)

Afterwards, I decided that I wanted to live there and become "The Phantom of the Small World Ride" but my friends dragged me out kicking and screaming instead.

Oh well...so much for THAT dream.

I'm happy it made you happy. It sounds weird, but after reading and rereading your comics I feel like you're my friend. I hope you get to go on that ride again someday and it's as magical as it was your first time through.

I HATE the ride/park/world, and my mom does too. Only because the damn Small World song plays over and over again--my mom had to leave after a few hours when she went.

my grandma made me ride this on vacation, I was like 13 and for some reason it terrified me... probably because i could see the cords in the water and it smelled funny. IDK i'm strange. XD

I remember crying on this ride, but I can't remember if the animatronics scared me, or my parents were trying to calm me down after my took my sister and I on a roller coster. I think it was the latter, but I'd have to ask my mom.

I went to DisneyWorld about three years ago and it was awesome! I did go to the Magic Kingdom, but I was there with my high school band and we had to get ready for the nights parade so I didn't have enough time to get on this ride.

Hehe, every trip up to the Magic Kingdom is not complete without going on this attraction.

In 1964, we learned to sing the song because of the World's Fair in Flushing. Just singing the song now makes me happy (and the people around me annoyed!)!

I first fell in love with her work during the Flushing Meadows World's Fair in 1964 - 1965.

And now no trip up to the Magic Kingdom in Disney World is complete without going on that ride.
