“it’s a small world” is a classic Disney attraction, located at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort. The ride features hundreds of dolls singing and dancing to the iconic song of the same name, “it’s a small world”.

But on a recent trip to Disneyland, Guests noticed that one of the animatronics was not working properly, causing a noticeable malfunction.

During one section of the ride, Guests will float past the iconic hula dancer animatronics. However, on a recent trip, one of the hula dancers looked as if she just gave up and got tired as the animatronic was just at a standstill while the other animatronics continued to dance.

@kaitkillbrew shared a video of the “it’s a small world” animatronic malfunction to TikTok, which you can check out below:

We do not know what is causing the unresponsive doll, but as we know technology can sometimes malfunction and we are sure Imagineers will fix the animatronic as soon as they can.
