The Disney Parks are supposed to be a place for families to enjoy the magic together. Recently, we have seen more and more strange videos featuring crazy behaviors from guests while visiting Disney Parks. Today, another one of these strange videos surfaced from Disneyland Park.

“it’s a small world”

Today, guests enjoying the iconic “it’s a small world” attraction in Disneyland Park got more than just the traditional slow-moving boat ride. 

A male guest on the ride took off his shirt and managed to begin walking around the attraction. Fellow riders caught the guests on camera as it hit social media quickly. 

In the video, the young male sits in the reflection pond before the Taj Mahal. He then gets up and starts to walk around, making his way through the ride and glancing into different areas. 

Those in other areas of the ride caught the “show” from a different point of view. It seems he might have lost more of his clothes by the time the guest made his way past those outside the ride.  

Poor Guests Behavior

This isn’t the first time, or probably the last time, we have seen poor behavior by guests at a Disney Park. 

News stories continue to break around guests choosing to make not-so-great decisions while visiting Walt Disney World or Disneyland. 

From trying to sneak illegal items, such as alcohol, into the parks to trying to sneak kids into the park, we have seen some guests heading to Disney make poor choices.

Guests have been removed from parks for having selfie sticks, which are not allowed, to having guns hidden inside their diaper bags

Unfortunately, this incident isn’t the first time someone has disrupted an iconic attraction. We have also seen guests jumping out of boats on Pirates of the Caribbean and waking through the water. 

Even though Disney works hard each day to bring magic to guests, recent guests’ behavior seems to be challenging that goal.

“it’s a small world” in Disneyland Park

This iconic attraction opened in 1966, taking guests worldwide in a slow-moving boat ride. Called “The Happiest Cruise That Ever Sailed,” “it’s a small world” features over 300 audio-animatronics dolls representing children worldwide. 

The classic song focuses on world peace and is sung in the native language as guests enjoy traveling from country to country.

The ride is full of Disney history. The iconic Mary Blair and Alice Davis collaborated to bring the ride to life for the 1964-1965 New York World’s Fair. Davis and her husband sewed over 300 costumes for the ride with authentic materials from each region.

Although the ride has received some updates over the years, including the debut of characters from beloved Disney and Pixar films, the overall message and history of the ride remain.

We hope that all guests at Disney Parks worldwide enjoy the magic “it’s a small world” brings.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
