When it comes to Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort alike, some of the most classic attractions are also the ones that break down the most often.
Unfortunately, an attraction that’s been open for decades now has accumulated more than enough wear and tear to warrant occasional technical difficulties.
That means that an attraction that’s been present in Disneyland Park since the very beginning is more likely to break down than a newer Disney attraction.
Recently, one of the most classic, iconic, and recognizable rides in Disney history went down, and not even Mickey Mouse himself could fix it.

In this video, we can see that “it’s a small world” is entirely dark and offline. However, Mickey Mouse is on the scene, trying his best to help. As he tries to work his magic to bring life back into the offline Disney attraction, the ride stays put.
As it turns out, Disney magic can’t fix everything. It seems like this was a job for someone with more practical, technical magic!
The original “it’s a small world” ride first opened in 1966 and has been delighting Guests ever since. The iconic, albeit repetitive song is one of the most recognizable tunes in the world.
Not only that, but the childlike and whimsical artwork of art director Mary Blair (who was selected by Walt Disney himself to work on the boat ride attraction) has become incredibly recognizable.
At the time of this article, “it’s a small world” is up and running again.
