It's A Small World 1966

It's A Small World was a recently opened attraction in 1966 and attracted many of the guests to ride through the world filled with Mary Blair designs and the Sherman Brothers song. Not only was the interior of the ride an attraction, but the line featured some fun topiary. We start our tour today with a long view of the show building.

A closer look in line. Check out the daring kid trying to figure out how a train goes between the building and the line.

A close look at one of the topiary.

Now on the ride, some nice interior scenes. First up is Russia and Eastern Europe.

Next up is Italy with the leaning tower in the background.

The Arabian peninsula.

And a fleeting glimpse of the Netherlands with the Dutch geese.

Wow, what a great set of pictures. How interesting to see the original sets -- they've been altered over the years. Nice to see what the original intent was.

I'm blinded with rage.... Actually, these are sweet. That vast expanse of space in pic# 1 is amazing.
