Iconic Disney Attraction Gets Reopening Date

A beloved Disney Park attraction has officially gotten a reopening date after Disney recently announced its closure for a makeover post its holiday.

The Walt Disney World Resort and the Disneyland Resort are known to be two of the best places in the world to have that quintessential Disney vacation. Each Disney Resort with each of its Theme Parks, Magic Kingdom Park, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World, and Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure in Disneyland Resort are beloved by Guests.

One of the biggest draws of Disneyland Resort is “it’s a small world.” “it’s a small world” was created for the 1964-1965 New York World’s Fair and was personally overseen by Walt Disney in support of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). The attraction was a huge hit for two seasons and was eventually shipped back to Disneyland Park, where it opened on May 28, 1966.
