Disneyland Resort Annual Passholders were given the opportunity to preview the newly refurbished “it’s a small world” attraction at Disneyland yesterday, just ahead of the public reopening this morning. With the exception of being open briefly for the Christmas holiday, the attraction closed last February for a lengthy renovation, during which the entire flume and all of the boats were replaced.
Additionally it was rumored that Disney characters such as Ariel and Flounder, Lilo and Stitch and others would be placed throughout the ride, much to the dis-pleasure of Disney purists.
Now what has been kept under wraps for the last 12 months has been revealed and Adrienne Vincent-Phoenix, staff writer at MousePlanet, has captured the ride-through on video.
Check it out for yourself and see if you can spot some of the 30 additional characters that have been added to the ride. The video also features the all new “Spirit of America” scene.
