What I am getting at is a topic I have shied away from, until now. With the recent confirmation of the changes coming to Disneyland’s it’s a small world, I think now is the time to let our voices be heard. This attraction, created for UNICEF for the 1964 World’s Fair, featuring one of the most (insert recognizable or annoying here) songs every created, has become a classic. While I do not wish for the parks to ever become a museum to the way things were, and I do believe that it’s a small world may need some TLC, I also believe in upholding the core values intrinsic in a classic attraction. For the record, adding stylized characters, such as Stitch and Alice, does not uphold these values.
Below is the article from the L.A. Times and the letter by Mary Blair’s family. I only ask that you take some time to read over both the article and the letter. Then, if you feel so inclined, I have also included the address to Disneyland’s Guest Relations, so that you may write them a letter. I know I will.
