PHOTOS: Even More Colorful Touches Added to “it’s a small world” at the Magic Kingdom

It may be a world of laughter and tears, but lately, at the Magic Kingdom, it’s been a world of color as the repainting of “it’s a small world” continues to press on.


The archways guests first pass through when entering the indoor portion of the queue seem nearly complete with a glittering gold and white palette.


The classic color scheme stretches on through the first part of the façade, serving as a background to the more colorful scheme seen moving forward.


When looking straight on from the outdoor queue, much of the gold and white is hidden behind colorful pieces, but it is quite stunning on its own.


On the right-hand side, white accents teal and lavender pieces, matching the playful theme of the attraction.

The gold and white wrap around to the windows shared with Pinocchio’s Village Haus, nicely illuminated with strands of lights around the windows and geometric shapes below.


Exiting the attraction, we can see how the white and gold work together with the new colors to add more dimension.


Another happy thing we noticed was that the top of the right column of the entrance archway as boats enter the attraction proper has finally received its pink and purple look. Unusually, that single section had gone unpainted for weeks, but now matches the rest of the arch.


All in all, the façade of “the happiest cruise that ever sailed” is looking like new just in time for the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World.
