The Newly Renovated "It's a Small World" Attraction at Disneyland

There was a lot of buzz this month about the newly renovated and revamped "It's a Small World" ride at Disneyland.  The ride was closed down for about a year for this renovation that both refurbished the mechanics of the ride and, more significantly, added 29 Disney characters to the attraction for the first time.

Many people think that adding Disney characters like Alice in Wonderland, Nemo and Dory, Lilo and Stitch, Cinderella, Pinnochio, Aladdin, Peter Pan and Tinkerbell, Donald Duck, Mulan, etc. to the ride is a terrible decision.  Well, we have not been on the ride, but based on this great video from, I think this ride remains quite magical.
