DL Small World TMK Small World

The impressive Disneyland Small World is at the far back corner of Fantasyland. This version was originally built for the 1964 World's Fair in New York. The boat track is stand alone (like most log flume rides) as it goes through the sets.

Trivia: This attraction was one of three that came to Disneyland after the 1964 World's Fair. Mr. Lincoln and Carousel of Progress were the other two. Parts of a fourth attraction ended up as a scene the Disneyland Railroad passes through -- Primeval World.

The TMK remake of Small World is right in the middle of Fantasyland. The ride is very similar to the original, but the flume was designed into the sets so it appears to be "part" of them rather than just a track going through them.

Trivia: Have you heard the clock ticking? According to a former Walt Disney engineer who worked during the opening of Epcot Center, the audio for the tick was created by mechanical means. A motorized wood block (that was struck by a mallet) is placed next to a microphone which goes to amplified speakers. Is this true today?
