There are so many enjoyable holiday activities coming to Disneyland this year. But we’re particularly excited about one of them. ‘It’s A Small World’ Christmas theme ride is coming back to Disneyland with 400,000 sparkling lights!

There are also 3 new additions you’d never think to guess. The beloved holiday boat ride is adding new scents to the lands as you sail through the merry Christmas decor. 

According to the Orange County Register, the new scents include cinnamon in the South American scenes, coconut in the South Seas, and cherry blossom in the Asia scenes. These fun new additions complement the fresh smell of pine and peppermint candy you know from the European scenes. 

From November 8 through January 6, 2020, you can visit the ride in all of its winter glory. You can get the FastPass for the ride near the Matterhorn bobsleds. 

You’ll set sail along a wondrous waterway transformed with colorful, whimsical decor. All along the ride, regional adornments greet you as you make your way through various small lands. 

You won’t be able to help but smile as the costumed animatronic figures sing traditional tunes. Plus, the classic (that gets stuck in your head for a week), “It’s A Small World (After All).”

This year, the ride is covered in 400,000 Christmas lights! Fifty thousand main lights illuminate the journey with the rest used to wrap Christmas trees, hedges, and animal statues in a sea of holiday wonder.

The plaza all around the attraction is covered in festive decor to complement the ride. Make sure to swing by and get a cup of hot chocolate or a festive-themed cookie. 

After dark, the smiling clock in front of ‘It’s A Small World’ gives way to a dazzling projection light show. Multiple times throughout the night, you will be able to see the gears and springs in the clock pull back to reveal even more beautiful holiday wonders.
