Picture 5

For over 41 years, 22 different goodbyes in different languages were the last thing guests would see on “it’s a small world” at the Magic Kingdom. That scene was quietly removed a few days ago and black tarps were hung to cover work Imagineers are currently doing to the attraction. Rumor has it that when completed, the new scene will read guest’s MagicBands and RFID-enabled tickets to give them a personalized goodbye with their name in it. Here’s what the scene looks like now:

Stay tuned to WDW News Today as work progresses on this new scene for “it’s a small world”.

    Cool concept….can’t wait to see the finished project. I’m really excited about all the “next-gen” changes going on around the park!

    I don’t get it. They’re going to say people’s names…how? Is a computer going to say them or is a person going to say it or will they have dolls to say it? I don’t understand this.

  • Rocky Balboa

    I will get you Rocky and your friend, Apollo Creed
