A couple weeks ago I made my first trip to Walt Disney World in Florida and finally got to experience the "It's A Small World" ride which was designed by one of my favorite artists, Mary Blair (who celebrates her 100th birthday today. Happy Birthday, Mary!)

Afterwards, I decided that I wanted to live there and become "The Phantom of the Small World Ride" but my friends dragged me out kicking and screaming instead.

Oh much for THAT dream.

Sir, I have nothing but the utmost respect for you.  You rode It's a Small World and were not annoyed by that song.  Seriously, It's a Small World is so catchy, it makes the Inspector Gadget theme song sound like a Philip Glass Opera.  It's so catchy, Some Jerk with a Camera (the name of an actual reviewer) actually replaced all audio of the song with Moxy Fruvous' cover of Psycho Killer.  Personally, I would prefer Brother of Mine by Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe as it shares the prayer for peace aesthetic with It's a Small World but is far less annoying.…

Don't take this as a personal insult.  I've read your comics and the Ensign Sue trilogy and those are hilarious.

So true I've cried to my family that this ride had made me happy in like 1000 years

Heh, I got a bunch of photos when I rode it in 2011 (during the week-long stay at Disney was for my foster worker's wedding).

I'm happy it made you happy. It sounds weird, but after reading and rereading your comics I feel like you're my friend. I hope you get to go on that ride again someday and it's as magical as it was your first time through.

I HATE the ride/park/world, and my mom does too. Only because the damn Small World song plays over and over again--my mom had to leave after a few hours when she went.

my grandma made me ride this on vacation, I was like 13 and for some reason it terrified me... probably because i could see the cords in the water and it smelled funny. IDK i'm strange. XD

I live in Florida my entire life and have actually never been on that ride. I've heard it is multicultural.

I remember crying on this ride, but I can't remember if the animatronics scared me, or my parents were trying to calm me down after my took my sister and I on a roller coster. I think it was the latter, but I'd have to ask my mom.
