Introducing...It's A Small World

Welcome to the first in a couple of posts looking at It's A Small World attraction in Parc Disneyland, Paris. With all the controversies surrounding the update of the attraction over in Disneyland, California, I thought it appropriate to focus on this attraction next in my tour of Disneyland Paris.
If you're reading this, you're probably familiar with the attraction - whether you have ridden it in one of the parks around the world, or just know the theme song! IASW is situated in Fantasyland in Paris, and the ride starts outdoors, like it's Californian counterpart. As you can see from the picture above, just as you enter the turrets of Fantasyland you catch a glimpse of IASW... Then, below you can see the outer facade of the ride, showing the unique styling of Mary Blair, and with the extremely relevant Tour Eiffel front and centre! In fact, the facade focuses more on the symbols of countries - unlike the Disneyland version, which has the 'symbols' behind the outer shapes.

Of course, the attraction has the popular clock tower, similar to those IASW's throughout the world!

And even though this picture is a little blurry, hopefully you can see the beauty of the ride at night, too. And I'll finish here, just before we enter the IASW of Disneyland Paris.

Is everything at DLP a slight pink color?

I never noticed that - but I guess it's because pink is one of my favourite colours...but yeah, they must have had a lot of that pink paint that they needed to use up (especially when the budget increased so much!).

Beautiful photographs Fee!

As for the pink, it does appear to be all over, but I also think it pops a little more than other colors, especially when the skies are a dreary shade of grey.
