When Guests visit Disney, they often have a set of attractions that they cannot wait to ride. Whether you have been to the Park before, or you like to watch videos on YouTube to get acquainted with what is around, it is easy to pick a few attractions out that have your interest piqued.

Typically, Guests are able to ride whatever attraction their heart desires, but at times, they may experience an attraction closure or refurbishment. If an attraction has a maintenance issue during the day, it will close inexpertly. Although this may seem as a nuisance for some Guests, the attraction typically is up and running shortly after. Refurbishments, on the other hand, are scheduled closures that guarantee that you will not be able to ride during a certain amount of time.

At Disneyland Paris, “it’s a small world” will be closing on November 29th without any reopening date announced. At the moment, the attraction closure calendar for Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios does not show the schedule past the end of the year, so for now, we only know that it will for sure be closed through the month of December.

DLP Report (@DLPReport) took to Twitter to remind Guests that tomorrow is the last time that they can enjoy the attraction for the next while.

Reminder: tomorrow is the last day to take a cruise on “it’s a small world” for a while

Disney describes the attraction as:

‘it’s a small world’: The Happiest Cruise That Ever Sailed
Sing along to the classic anthem of world peace during a delightful musical boat tour hosted by the children of the world. From a colourful dock, climb aboard a cosy boat and set sail along the Seven Seaways Waterway on a 10-minute journey.

Amid a vibrant, multi-coloured backdrop exquisitely crafted out of papier-mâché, glitter and fabric, behold a cast of almost 300 traditionally dressed dolls from nearly every corner of the globe sing a simple song in their native language about universal harmony and dance. Travel to all 7 continents and, by journey’s end, see for yourself that it truly is a small world after all.

At Disneyland Paris, lots of changes are coming to Walt Disney Studios as well as their Disneyland Park, with the 30th anniversary just months away. Walt Disney Studios is adding a massive addition that will include Star Wars, Marvel, and Frozen, as well as their very own Avengers Campus, which will be the first section to open in the Park. One of the biggest changes that we have seen is on Sleeping Beauty Castle, which was covered by a box facade for months. Recently, Disney began to uncover the castle to reveal a stunning, magical masterpiece.
