Love/Hate Relationships

Welcome to those of you joining me from Can Do It Mom AKA Mouse Fan Diane and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the final stop on our Magical Blogorail.

August Topic: The Ride/Attraction I Love to Hate

If I weren't with my daughter at the park, I wouldn't bother going on "it's a small world".  That's right.  I'm not a fan.

It's an attraction mostly targeted to little ones, and it repeats that song over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over.  

In my younger days, I wouldn't be caught dead wasting time on this ride.  I spent most of my time on the Matterhorn or Space Mountain.  In fact, I avoided the entire Small World area entirely because I couldn't stand listening to the clock go off every 15 minutes announcing the time with the marching dolls.

And then something happened.

I had a kid.

One of the beautiful things about Disneyland is that most of the rides are designed for the entire family, infants and toddlers included.  So during our visits, Small World was always something I took my daughter on and over the years I've started to appreciate it.

The song has a good message and showcases peace among all.  In addition, the Imagineers have added Disney characters to the Disneyland version of the attraction making it more fun to find and point them all out to my daughter.  

Now, if I was at the park and didn't have my daughter with me, I still wouldn't go on.  

But if she's with me, I will take her over and over and over and over if she likes it so much that she's THIS happy just to be in the queue:

The video is 2 minutes, so if you don't have time, skip to the last 45 seconds.  It just melts my heart to see her this happy.

Thank you for joining Magical Blogorail Peach this month. We will be back on September 3rd with an all new theme. If you are looking for more Disney magic, you can make your way over to The Magical Blogorail website to see all our members and their blogs.
