5/15/10 UPDATE – WDI and WDW have stated that they are not adding characters to the attraction at this time.

The classic Magic Kingdom attraction “it’s a small world” is now listed on the Walt Disney World website as closed for refurbishment from August 1st through October 22nd, 2010. While we have no idea what could be part of this refurbishment, it is really strange to see an attraction that just received an extensive overhaul 5 years ago closing for an extended period of time. Is it possible that some Disney characters might be added to a few scenes of the attraction, much like they appear at Disneyland and Hong Kong Disneyland? We’ll just have to wait and see. Stay tuned for more information on this upcoming refurbishment as it becomes available.
