Saw this on Mousetales and WDWunmagical.

I saw a lot of the construction when I was there in mid-July. You really get a great shot of what is being done from Dumbo. I'm super excited to follow the construction progress.

Interesting... then again, it could just be Disney's continuing effort to homogenize all merchandise so they can spend less and screw the guests over even more with the same generic everything for sale at every single gift shop across the globe...

But I certainly hope it means we get the characteres in IASW.

You could be right but it is closed for a long time to just swap the entrance and exit

Just last Wednesday I was at Disneyland and rode It's a Small World for my first time (Well, DLR's). I'm so jealous of their Small World! It's so much better and I actually loved all the classic Disney characters in it. I thought since they were messing with such an old attraction it wouldn't be as timeless, but I was proved wrong.

I hope that they add those characters into the ride. I can't wait for all this refurbishment to be done with.

I may be more inclined to ride Small World if they add some characters

I love It's A Small World! It is my favorite ride above all. I was disappointed when it was closed in August. Luckily I got to ride it in May. Any upgrades are welcome by me. I can't wait.

Well, I thought I saw Pooh's tree, from Google Earth, in the ride queue area. Nice to know I ain't crazy. Nice to know they're keeping it too.
Looks like the field they cleared behind the park Chunnel entrance ain't being used either. Figured they might build a new support building there or at least a staging area. Maybe they just pulled some dirt out for that mountain they got going on in FL?

i wouldn't put too much into it.. and i would check and see if DLR sells the same product with the same logo just with DLR instead of Magic Kingdom.

A lot of the new merchandise is co branded with both DLR and WDW

Yes, they are re-branded or simple duplicates of the DL merch.

Screamscape posted hat local sources have re-iterated that the characters are NOT being added, and that the merch is just that - duplicates from DL.

If they do add the characters, I hope they dont add that gawdy America scene, it kind of ruins the ride since its supposed ot be a trip through other countries, maybe they could add newer characters like put Perry amoung hte plataypi in the Australia room, and hide the house from Up in the Rainforest scene.

This is not what the ride is about, it is about all of the countries in the world and the children in those countries.
