While the act of tossing coins into the water may not be officially encouraged by Disney, it has taken on a special meaning for some guests to try and wish for unity. Guests who partake in this tradition may view it as a way to contribute to the spirit of unity and harmony that the ride represents. Other guests throw coins so they feel like active participants in the enchanting world of “it’s a small world.” It allows them to contribute to the magic and leave their mark on the ride, even if temporarily.

Officially, Disney does not endorse or encourage guests to toss coins into the water on “it’s a small world.” The primary concern is the potential impact on the ride’s mechanical and electrical systems, as well as the ecological impact on the water and aquatic life. Disney conducts routine maintenance to remove coins and other debris from the ride’s water to prevent damage and ensure the safety and efficiency of the attraction. For certain attractions, signs are posted at the ride’s entrance, kindly requesting guests not to throw objects into the water.
