This month marks 50 years since the opening of “it’s a small world” at Disneyland park, and just a few years ago we marked another milestone of this classic attraction. In 1964, “it’s a small world” opened and captured imaginations at the New York World’s Fair. Fifty years later, in 2014, Disney Parks marked the the anniversary of this iconic attraction – and its memorable theme song – with a worldwide celebration. Take a look at some of our favorite renditions!
The Mormon Tabernacle Choir kicked off our series of sing-along videos with their performance of “it’s a small world.”
Here is a performance from the children’s choir, Xin Yin, at the Shanghai Cultural Center.
Our musical tribute to the 50th anniversary of the song continued with a performance all the way from Italy.
Finally, thousands of Disney Parks fans participated in the historic celebration, and even recorded and shared online video of themselves singing “it’s a small world.”
Which was your favorite performance? Tell us in the comments!
My favorite was the Disneyland Cast Members participating in the live sing along. I had the honor of attending the performance, and it was the experience of a lifetime. I’ve been riding “it’s a small world” for over 40 years, and it is still my favorite attraction.
