Embark on a whimsical boat ride past an angelic chorus of delightful dolls that represent children from all over the globe.

"The Happiest Cruise that Ever Sailed"
Sing along to the well-known anthem of world peace during a musical boat tour hosted by children from many different countries.

Get into a small boat and set sail along the Seven Seaways canal for an approximately 15-minute journey.

Against a vibrant, multi-colored backdrop exquisitely crafted out of papier-mâché, glitter and fabric, behold a cast of almost 300 traditionally dressed dolls depicting children from nearly every corner of the globe, singing about universal harmony in their native languages. Travel to all 7 continents and, by journey’s end, see for yourself that it truly is a small world after all.

Bon Voyage!
From the snow-capped Swiss Alps to the golden Serengeti, the children of the world are ready to make your acquaintance. During your tour, experience a rainbow of diverse cultures from such far-off locales as:

  • The Polar Regions
  • The British Isles
  • Western Europe
  • Eastern Europe
  • The Middle East
  • Asia
  • Africa
  • South America
  • The South Pacific
  • The United States


Before returning home, the children reunite for a grand finale, reminding us of our common connections of friendship, laughter and happiness. From a child’s perspective, we are all basically the same.
