If you haven’t had a chance to check out the new “it’s a small world” Holiday Clock Show in Disneyland park, now is the time. I spoke with co-designer and animator Lisa Bradley before the show debuted and she gave me a glimpse at just how intricate the details are for the virtual décor that can be seen every fifteen minutes after dark.

“it’s a small world” Holiday Clock Show Fun Facts:

  • There are 980 pieces of candy in the gingerbread scene.
  • The train in the toy section is placed in the same location the actual Disneyland Railroad trains cross as they pass by the attraction.
  • There are 232 gears in the clock section.
  • The blocks in the toy factory scene represent Disneyland Resort cast members who worked on the show.


  • Looks awesome, I wish that I could see it in person this year.

    Just out of curiosity, how long did it take from Blue Skying the show to completion?
