PHOTOS, VIDEO: Bring “it’s a small world” Home With This Amazing New Musical Collectible from Disney Parks

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Discovered yesterday at Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe at the Magic Kingdom, guests can now bring home a piece of the beloved “it’s a small world” attraction at Disney Parks.

This amazing musical nutcracker features the Toy Soldier drummers who have been an iconic part of the clock tower ceremony dating back to the attraction’s debut at Disneyland Park in the 1960’s. The characters first appeared at Walt Disney World in 2005 when the loading area was completely redesigned to match the West Coast counterpart.

While I will be keeping mine out all year round, they are intended to be a holiday decoration. They are made of wood and have musical and moving elements when you wind it up:

The Musical Nutcracker retails for $99.99, which is a little pricey, but “it’s a small world” often doesn’t receive a lot of love as far as collectibles and statues are concerned at Disney Parks. It’s great to see such a creative well-thought out product that allows us to bring home a piece of a Magic Kingdom attraction. More of this please, Disney.

I don’t know about you, but there are times when planning a Disney vacation can be overwhelming! There are so many options, where to stay, when to go, is this the best price. So, I want to introduce you all to Cindy Minor and the team at Small World Big Fun. They will help you plan your Disney vacation for FREE. Contact them today!

  • Anything small world is great. I agree with year round display. Hopefully there will be more of this.

  • Do you know if we can buy these online somehow? Tried the shop Disney app and couldn’t find them at all :(

  • Yes! I’d love to order it online. I’m disappointed in the Disney parks app. Before it came out, you could call WDW and ask them to track down an item you saw in one of the stores. Not something you can do now that they have the app. Yet, only certain items can be bought. Disney needs to make any item from the parks available for order. Also, get rid of items on the app that aren’t in the stores. In May, we were at WDW and my sister saw an item on the app and she asked us to track it down. I checked the app and did some research and the item was not available in any store on WDW property. Why have it listed if it’s not available in the parks????
