  • [Question] Small World Closed Timeline

  • #2
    Re: Small World Closed Timeline

    I'll be there November 6th - 13th. So I may see you there.

    I know, I was disappointed when I heard that Small World will be closed the majority of our trip.

    My Boyfriend and I will be taking my 7 year old sister, and she's never been on It's A Small World.

    Last time we went around the 2nd week of November, lines were just too long.

    Hopefully we will be able to see it on the 12th.

      You never know. It could "soft open" a little early, but I wouldn't count on it. The decorations that they put in are very elaborate, it definitely takes some time and effort to get that attraction ready.

        It is a very involved overlay. It will probably take them that whole time. They have been doing it for a number of years now and know just how long it will take them. Maybe a day early, but that's it really.

        Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

            I was there last year the week leading up to the day it re-opened and it was completely shut off and followed it's posted schedule. The day before it opened they filled up the flume but I did not see them cycle the boats. At night they turned on the clock face but it was making no noise, and all the lights were turned off. Driving by the park after it closed for the night we could see they turned on and tested the outside lights, and then it opened with the park the folowing morning. Don't hold your breath for a soft opening the day before, they seem to stick to that schedule.

                They've done this since 1997.
                They've got the timeline down to a science.

                If you think about it, they do a lot for the overlay.
                It's amazing what they do accomplish in the time that they give themselves.

                To that end I'd like the Internet community to join me in reminding the Disney company that "it all started with Walt." As you can see below we've created some T-shirts, plus a few simple graphics that you can copy and paste into your websites to let folks know how you feel.
