    I'm waiting for info on when Small World goes down for the Holiday refurb in October (it's usually happened during our trip between Oct. 19-22) - have been checking all the sites and haven't found anything. Anyone heard anything?

    We're going Oct. 21-26 this year and I'm hoping we'll get to see it at least one day!

    I believe Small World is closed from Oct. 22 - Nov. 8, so make sure you ride it on the 21st!:thumbsup2

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! I desperately needed that - and we will pack our rides into the 21st!

    You know that song will be in my head for the remainder of the trip. Lol...our little one likes to ride it a lot...

    Your welcome!:)

    I'm the ONLY one in my family that likes to ride it. I have to DRAG my hubby and 2 little boys onto the boats, so I only get to ride it once per trip.:goodvibes

    (They like it better with the Christmas makeover, but even then, they'll only ride it once.):santa:

    Ah, I'm sorry! Ours is just turning 3 this next trip, so it's still a HUGE favorite. At the end of the day, it still feels like we're riding on it - the motion from it sort of stays with you after many rides.

    This December will be our first time seeing it in Holiday make-over. What can I expect for it? Do they change the song?

    I don't think I could not ride it - just seeing the faces on the little kids is so amazing that this ride alone makes every trip worth it!!!

    They DO change the song for the holidays!:thumbsup2

    As you go through the different countries, the music goes from "Jingle Bells" to "It's a Small World" to "Jingle Bells" to "It's a Small World", and on and on and on...

    There's lots of pretty holiday lights too, and you'll occasionally hear Santa go "HO HO HO"! Sometimes they also have bubbles coming down near the end, but the last time we rode it during the holidays, they didn't have any bubbles.

    You'll LOVE IT!!!

    Can't wait!!!! Morgan will be so excited to see that! I think it'll be neat to see it with the changes and within just a couple months of each other. I wonder if she'll notice the differences as much!

    BTW - in case you don't see my other post to you, read your trip report through the link - LOVED it! You're a great writer, that was hysterical and so much fun to read. Thanks!!!

    I think Morgan will notice the difference. It is quite a change, IMHO.:goodvibes

    I did see your other post, and thanks again for reading and for the great compliment!!! (Did I spell that correctly? What the heck time is it?)

    Good gosh, it's 11:00pm on a Saturday night! Am I married with kids or what?:lmao:
