Beginning the three park tradition of the attraction opening with the park, “its a small world” opened on October 1st, 1971 with Magic Kingdom, and is one of the original opening day attractions. Magic Kingdom’s its a small world is a bit boring (history wise). As it doesn't have that much of a change that have occurred. The only major thing that has happened in the attraction’s history was, the ride underwent a major refurbishment from May 2004 to March 2005, reopening with a state-of-the-art sound system, new lighting effects, and a loading area similar to the ride's façade at Disneyland.
Since the attraction is housed as a part of the Fantasyland “festival”/ village area of the land, it is themed with “tents” and such, at the entrance. It is the ONLY small world attraction to NOT be located in its own building. The attraction shares its residence with Pinocchio’s Village Haus. And does not have the Mary Blair/ Rolly Crump style facade.
Since Magic Kingdom’s attraction doesn't feature the facade of the building, like the other small worlds of the world, most of its pins feature the children of the attraction, rather than the attraction facade itself
This pin was released to commemorate the Grand RE Opening of its a small world in 2005, featuring the new loading background of the Disneyland facade.
