Disney launching international "small world" sing-along

Posted:
NEW YORK (WREX) -

To celebrate the attraction's 50th anniversary, Disney is inviting people around the world to share their renditions of "it's a small world."

A new website launched by the company invites the public to submit videos of themselves singing. Visitors to the site can also design virtual dolls by mixing and matching faces, outfits, and other elements.

The original "small world" attraction opened at the 1964 World's Far in New York as "a salute to UNICEF and all the world's children." Fifty years later, Disney will donate $150,000 to UNICEF along with another $1 for each video and doll posted or shared on the new website, www.SmallWorld50.com, up to $100,000.

The boat ride attraction moved on to be a centerpiece of both Disney World and Disneyland, with the well-known song still playing in a continuous loop.
