Sailing With Music by Mike Billick Via Flickr: Let’s take a ride on the happiest cruise that ever set sail. It’s A Small World is one of those rides that even though it’s not the most exciting ride in the park, it’s a very nostalgic ride. The only “side effect” is the fact that you will have that song stuck in your head all day long..lol. Let me get us started, “It’s a small world after all, it’s a small world after all…..” Is it stuck in your head yet? Have a magical day!
It’s a Small World, will celebrate its 50th golden anniversary April 10!
“On Thursday, April 10, 2014, hundreds of voices from Disneyland Resort in California, Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, Tokyo Disney Resort in Japan, Disneyland Paris in France and Hong Kong Disneyland Resort will sing the unforgettable theme song of the ‘happiest cruise that ever sailed the seven seas,’ ” Disney Parks and Resorts said Friday.
To initiate the merrymaking, a virtual sing-along is being launched Friday at SmallWorld50.com, where fans “may record videos of themselves singing the classic song” and create virtual dolls to benefit the United Nations Children’s Fund.
For every video recorded and digital doll shared, the Walt Disney Company will make a donation to benefit UNICEF, $100,000 in total. This will be in addition to a $150,000 gift the company has already earmarked for the organization, which works in more than 190 countries and territories to save and improve children’s lives.“
