It’s no secret to Disney fans that something Magical happened whenever Walt Disney and the Sherman Brothers gathered around the piano to dream, compose, and create together. Whimsical lyrics, jaunty tunes, and timeless storytelling were the hallmark of their partnership, and their project for the 1964 New York World’s Fair was no exception.
it’s a small world was born out of the Fair’s overarching theme, entitled “Peace Through Understanding.” This concept not only played perfectly into the hands of a man who refused to grow up, but also into the creative minds of imagineers with an unmatched talent for conveying powerful messages through the wholesome and hopeful eyes of a child. And although the attraction is largely known today as being the one with the surreptitiously catchy song, we who have a passion for Disney storytelling and its ability to touch our hearts at every age recall those words with fond reminiscence and a joyful heart.
“There is just one moon and one golden sun, and a smile means friendship to everyone. Though the mountains divide and the oceans are wide…”
When we come together to be Here With the Magic, we find genuine connection, a sense of community, and a space where we can set our childlike imagination free. Wherever you are, wherever you come from, wherever your journey might take you tomorrow, it's Here that we find it really IS a small world after all. It's Here we discover the joy that keeps us young at heart and our spirit light. And it's Here we feel connected to our entire global family by those golden threads of youth, woven in a timeless song and a story of togetherness.
