    Is the ride small world closed? Planning to visit in two weeks but I’ve seen on the app that it’s closed.

    Hi there, Elizabeth!  Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney!

    When I visit Disneyland Park, one of the attractions that's always at the top of my must-do list is "it's a small world."  This happy little boat ride is such a quintessential Disney experience, and it never fails to put a smile on my face.  My kids love to spot their favorite Disney characters among the other dolls in their appropriate countries.  Have you ever experienced "it's a small world" Holiday?  If not, you'll have to plan another visit during the holiday season to see this festive ride overlay.  It's bound to put you in the holiday spirit.

    I checked both the Disneyland Resort website and the Disneyland mobile app and did not see any mention of closure for "it's a small world."  In fact, I was able to view the current wait time for "it's a small world" in the Disneyland app, so the ride is definitely operating as I'm writing this answer.  If an attraction is experiencing technical difficulties and needs to close temporarily, you will see a temporary closure message in the Disneyland app when you view ride wait times.  This may be what you saw when you checked your app. 

    Typically, when an attraction has a planned closure for refurbishment, there will be a message about that closure in red print when you view that particular attraction's page on the Disneyland website.  You can always check on the status of your favorite attractions there on the website.  It's also a good idea to follow the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest news and announcements.  

    Elizabeth, if you have any other questions as you get ready for your upcoming Disneyland Resort visit, please don't hesitate to ask.  We would love to help!  Have a magical day!
