Canada's Spot In The "It's A Small World" Ride At Disneyland Is Getting Dragged Online
Disneyland is one of the most famous vacation destinations in the world. There are plenty of things to check out, but sometimes the classics are the best. The "It's a Small World" ride, for example, is always something resembling fun, even if it doesn't quite represent Canada to the fullest.
According to a post by Reddit user anonymouslovelyme, the country's section in the ride is not only brief but also pretty unflattering.
The photo shared in the post depicts what everyone must think perfectly represents Canada: a goofy looking, bucktoothed mountie with a bird on his head. At least the bird is designed in the style of an Indigenous symbol.
Some Reddit users left comments pointing out the mountie's shortcomings.
"There's representation for anglo's and natives but nothing for the French. They should put a poutine in one of his hand and a fork in the other and call it a day. LOL!" wrote u/ouatedephoque.
U/topher8903 wrote, "As a Canadian this infuriates me to no end! Where's the Molson or the maple syrup? For shame."
Still, you might expect this mountie to do something cool like throw up a salute. Unfortunately, as captured in a video of the ride, all it does is open its mouth and wave its arms around. Is this what people think of us?
It's not just the mountie's looks that are getting attention. It's also that this is all there is to represent Canada.
At least it comes at the beginning of the ride, you know what they say about first impressions!
Prior to the mountie, there is a display depicting Inuit life. However, it's not made clear that this is representing part of Canada. Besides, much like the Canadian law enforcement official that follows it, it's gone pretty quickly.
At least there are plenty of other things to see and do at Disneyland, even if they are entirely mountie-less.
