Sailing Through The Finale

Today is the last of my It's A Small World - Disneyland Paris posts. And we enter the final two rooms of the attraction - the Americas and the White Room. Those of you have kept up-to-date with the proposed (and possible) changes to the original Disneyland attraction will know that there is a chance that an Americas room could be added. The Disneyland Paris IASW differs from the current California and Florida rides by including an Americas room.

We first travel through South America: Mexico, Columbia, Brazil, etc. Showing the customs and the clothing of the respective areas.

And then enter a room dedicated to North America - Canada and the United States of America. Showing the Rockies, the Wild West, New York and Hollywood. It really is a fantastic room, and these photos don't do it justice!
Leaving the Americas, we enter the final room - the beautiful White Room, a tradition of It's A Small World and a room bringing together all the nationalities in a vision of peacefulness. After travelling through the various nations singing the famous ride theme tune, the final room has the tune sung in French, German and English. This differs from the other attractions in the world, which sing the final tune in their local language.

I am glad to hear that iasw is branching out with the final song and really giving it a more worldly feel by introducing it in several languages in the same scene. Thanks again for the tour!

Very interesting to see how we are thought of and shown to the rest of the world...
