  • [Question] How is Germany represented in Small World?

    How is Germany represented in It's a Small World? I know that there is a German safety spiel at the load area as one of the many foreign languages, but how is Germany represented in the ride itself?
    My top favorite Disneyland attractions:

    1. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
    2. Pirates of the Caribbean
    3. Splash Mountain
    4. Mad Tea Party
    5. Peter Pan's Flight
    6. Roger Rabbit's Car Toon Spin

    I believe Sylvania lights, the attraction sponsor is owned by a german company. This was originally an American company that split apart.

      Not the greatest picture, but Germany is represented by a largely Bavarian display:

          Disney seems to have a bit of a habitual problem in not realizing that while Bavaria is in Germany, not all of Germany is in Bavaria.

            Until the refit, Germany was represented more than the United States.

              Thats one of my favorite parts and the best part is the ride soundtrack that features yodeling the "small world" tune.I love to yodel along.
              I have always been impressed with the way they morph the music into styles and instrumentation of some of the cultures being represented throughout the ride.

                I think the problem is they only have so much space. America isn't all cowboys and corn There's just not enough room to squeeze in everything that comes to mind when people think of a country

                  Hmmm, this post makes me think, "what would a historically accurate version of Small World look like?". ...shudder...

                    I thought that was Switzerland.

                      I always considered it representing Switzerland, too (my heritage). I think it may represent both.

                        Just wondering since we are on the topic of Germany. I am suprised they never built a park in Europe's largest economy. It seems Berlin would be a great place for a park

                          The bell ringers are wearing lederhosen. There are also 3 musicians near the area who could be German, Austrian, or Swiss. I do believe it's supposed to be Switzerland/Bavaria/Austria. There's not a lot of room for differentiated scenes.

                            Actually, Germany is represented by a 3-musician ''umpah-band'' seen playing just above the archway as you exit the continental Western Europe section and on into the Eastern European/Asian one. And, yes, the yodeler/ bell-ringers represent Switzerland...

                              I've always felt that since the U.S. was the host, putting them in the show as well is redundant.

                                      I would say it is mostly Switzerland. Since Switzerland is one of the countries that lie on Italy's northern border this would make sense as it is the country you see right after leaving the Italy scene.

                                      But then again for that matter, Austria also borders with Italy, so maybe it's Austria?

                                        No, it's probably Switzerland, because you see and hear a yodeler.
