The classic Disneyland park attraction “it’s a small world” features many cultures and destinations, and a few months ago we started a trip around the “Happiest Cruise That Ever Sailed” to give you a closer look at its varied destinations. Our previous travels have taken you to Latin America, Europe, the Pacific Islands, Africa and Asia. Now it’s time for our final stop – North America.
