It’s Christmas and so I wanted to give you a little Christmas present: A complete and little bit unique ride through video of “it’s a small world – celebration“, the festive seasonal version of the classic Fantasyland ride at Disneyland Paris.

‘La Fontaine Du Petit Monde’

There are already quite a few ride through videos of “it’s a small world – celebration” available online, but what makes this one a little bit special is that I was all alone in the attraction during the filming. There was just me! All the boats were empty, no other guests were riding the attraction at that time so no one could disturb the recording with the usual “which country is that?” chatter or the annoying flash photography. Both video and audio are totally undisturbed, it was a ‘perfect’ ride through, so to speak.

I love this classic attraction very much and enjoy it even more with the festive holiday overlay and riding it all alone was a very special experience for me, a bit eerie I have to admit but also very exciting and unique. I hope that you’ll enjoy it too:

I hope you enjoyed the little virtual trip to this lovely Christmas attraction of Disneyland Paris! I have more “All Alone” ride through videos of other Disneyland Paris attractions. Please leave a comment if you enjoyed this and would like to see more of them!

Merry Christmas!



In 2010 “it’s a small world – celebration” received its very own, very beautiful attraction poster which replaced the regular “it’s a small world” attraction poster (on display below Main Street Station) during the time of the holiday overlay.
