What more is there to say about It's a Small World? Billed as the "happiest cruise that ever sailed" it's a slow leisurely boat ride past endless hoards of Audio Animatronic children endlessly singing the small world song which you'll either love or hate, but either way will NEVER forget (trust me on this one), and is present at each of the Magic Kingdom styled Disney theme parks.

There are almost 300 Audio-Animatronic(tm) figures within the It's a Small World attraction, which was originally built for New York's 1964-1965 World's Fair , children from more than 100 different nations which sing, dance, and entertain guests to a haunting melodic tune, alongside seals, polar bears, and various other animals.

It's a Small World is a slow boat ride, which would almost be relaxing if it weren't for the tune, which once you've heard will be virtually impossible to get out of your head, and will quite probably haunt you for the rest of your natural life.  The boats glide through areas representing different cultures,

And just in case you were wondering about the lyrics to the Small World theme ?

It's a world of laughter, a world of tears,
It's a world of hopes and a world of fears;
There's so much that we share,
That it's time we're aware
It's a small world after all.

It's a small world after all,
It's a small world after all,
It's a small world after all,
It's a small, small world.

There is just one moon,
and one golden sun,
And a smile means friendship to ev'ryone;
Though the mountains divide,
And the oceans are wide,
It's a small world after all.
