Once “it’s a small world” returns to its classic version, transitioning from “it’s a small world” Holiday, guests may notice work continuing in the promenade in front of the attraction. The location of the queue will be moved – along with other enhancements, including a new parade route entrance and stroller parking area – allowing guests to travel through the “it’s a small world” Mall with greater ease.
In addition to accessing “it’s a small world,” guests use the promenade in front of the attraction to get to Mickey’s Toontown and the Fantasyland Theatre, among other offerings. The slightly adjusted parade route will make room for the attraction’s new queue, creating more space in the area. Sometimes the queue for the attraction spills across the path, so the changes are being made to avoid this in the future.
“it’s a small world” Holiday will close on 1/22 and “it’s a small world” will reopen on 2/2. The aforementioned changes are expected to complete in spring, when “Pixar Play Parade” will step off the new parade route entrance during Pixar Fest, beginning April 13.
