Disney World Lesson #1

it is a small world!

On my recent trip to Disney World, I was lucky enough to be able to go on tons of rides- mostly kiddie rides, but they were so much fun!

My favourite ride, and although many won’t agree, was “It’s a small world”.

Probably the most classic ride in the theme park, and one that is found around Disney Parks globally. I suppose the reason I love this ride so much is because it encompasses what I believe about the world. Not to mention as a traveller, it is nice to see a representation of the whole world.

I love this ride so much so that I went on it 3 times! Then I got an “It’s a small world” pin, then when I got home I got the book. LOVE IT!

But how can you not, it is so simple and it teaches kids so much! I wish more parents took their children on this ride and explained it to them rather than skipping through it.

Here are some of the lyrics that go round and round …

It’s a world of laughter,
a world or tears.
It’s a world of hopes,
 It’s a world of fear.
There’s so much that we share
That its time we’re aware
It’s a small world after all!

There is just one moon and one golden sun
And a smile means friendship to everyone.
Though the mountains divide
And the oceans are wide
It’s a small world after all!

Maybe if everyone around the world was taught this one simple message, and perhaps took a ride on “It’s a small world”, all of our societies’ problems would be solved. Ok. Maybe not. But you get the point!

It really is that easy- we all share one of the most important things in common, and that is the world we live in- the rest is a small detail. So really; why can’t we just live in a small world and all just get along?
