From today's Discernment Process:

2/5/09 AP ANAHEIM, Calif. More than 40 years after the "It's A Small World" ride opened to promote world peace and showcase the cultures of the world, Disney is populating one of its most beloved attractions with its own trademark vision of the planet: Aladdin, Nemo, Ariel and more than two dozen cartoon characters plucked from its movies. And those aren't the only changes. Disney has woven a few bars from some of its hit soundtracks into the classic "Small World" melody and added a new America section that includes a nod to Los Angeles' famous Hollywood Bowl, a quaint farm scene and "Toy Story" characters.

Disney says it supplemented the human dolls with make-believe figures to keep the aging ride appealing to younger generations and give it a new twist. Yet some angry fans see an unabashed marketing ploy that ruins one of the few rides that remained unchanged since the days of Walt Disney. Others are miffed that Disney would inject fantasy worlds into a ride dedicated to cross-cultural understanding.

Disney says it hopes adding what it calls "new magic" to the 43-year-old attraction will attract even more riders and create new traditions for young families who don't identify with "Small World" as strongly as previous generations.

Reshuffling the attraction does appeal to many fans, some of whom grew up riding it each year with their parents. Dawn Barbour from Texas is thrilled to hear about the changes. "Oh, anything Disney does is always exciting," Barbour said. "It's always something fun, and they never do anything halfway."

Whenever Disney changes a popular ride, they say, the company receives criticism from die-hard fans who are resistant to anything that will alter the Disneyland of their childhood memories. So-called "Dis-nerds" also got upset when Disney recently refurbished the classic Pirates of the Caribbean attraction, but were mollified once they saw the updated ride.

"It's what Walt always wanted," said Kim Irvine, director of concept design for Walt Disney Imagineering. "He always said the park would always be changing as long as there was imagination in the world."Yet after initial reports of the proposed changes leaked last year, the son of the ride's original designer, children's illustrator Mary Blair, wrote an open letter to Disney executives blasting the changes as "a gross desecration of the ride's original theme."
