Walt Disney had an apartment in Disneyland above the Fire Station that is still intact to this day. We know about the light always on in the window of this apartment, but at Christmas, there is a tree in the window.
Themes of love, home and family run throughout “World of Color – Season of Light,” with special appearances by Lady and Tramp, Andy’s family from “Toy Story,” a “Mele Kalikimaka” with Stitch and his ‘ohana and a “Feliz Navidad” from the Three Caballeros.
Overall, the most substantial addition to the attraction is the lighting added to the facade on the exterior of the attraction. Words don’t do it justice nor does the photo above. It’s truly something you have to see in person to fully appreciate. Because of these lights, ‘it’s a small world’ holiday can attraction much longer lines at night. Normally, we would advise that you experience it earlier in the day to avoid these crowds. And we do advise you to do that. However, you’ll want to experience ‘it’s a small world’ holiday more than once, and you should make at least one of those rides at night. Floating into the lit facade is a great experience, and waiting in line isn’t all that bad because you have such a beautiful sight in front of you!
.As you approach the Facade you hear a familiar tune along with Jingle Bells. You wait your turn in line and every 15 minutes you notice a holiday projection show on the small world facade. You board your boat and enter the Hello Room which now has a Happy Holiday Sign. You enter the Antarctic Room which is now the North Pole. You travel through the ride and discover Chinese new years, Jungle Jangles, and Feliz Navidad. You enter the North American room to see yourself in a country Christmas. Finally you enter the “Finale Room” and you hear Deck the halls. Everything is decorated with white garland and lights hang from the roof. You exit through the Goodbye room which the Postcards have been replaced with Christmas cards. You Exit the Building and catch the twinkling lights once more as you disembark.
