Flooding that occurred during the process of refilling the flume on It’s a Small World will delay the reopening of the classic boat ride as Disneyland prepares to kick off the winter holiday season and launch the new Merriest Nites after hours event.

It’s a Small World experienced some flooding that affected machinery used to operate the attraction during the early morning hours on Wednesday, Nov. 10 while Disneyland was closed to the public, according to Disneyland officials.

Disneyland realizes the closure of It’s a Small World is disappointing for guests who look forward to this holiday tradition and has teams working around the clock to get the attraction open as soon as possible, according to Disneyland officials.

It’s a Small World undergoes a seasonal transformation for the holidays each year that typically takes weeks of work mostly by overnight crews.

The holiday version of It’s a Small World was supposed to reopen on Thursday, Nov. 11 for the first Merriest Nites after hours event and be ready for the kickoff of the holiday season at Disneyland on Friday, Nov. 12.

No estimated reopening date has been announced for It’s a Small World at Disneyland.

The nightly lighting ceremony on the facade of It’s a Small World that happens around dusk during the holiday season will still take place each night. In addition, the Small World facade will still be used for video projections during the “Believe in Holiday Magic” fireworks show.

The winter festivities at the Disneyland resort will see the return of “A Christmas Fantasy” parade and “Believe in Holiday Magic” fireworks show at Disneyland and the Festival of Holidays food festival and Viva Navidad street party at Disney California Adventure.
