For a group of parents visiting Disney Worldtheir trip became that much more excruciating when their families got stuck on the ‘It’s a Small World’ ride.
A video shared by TikTok user @HazeySmoom22 revealed visitors were stuck on the notoriously annoying ride for over an hour after one of the boats began sinking.
When operating normally, ‘It’s a Small World’ takes visitors on a scenic boat trip around a miniature version of the world populated by animatronic dolls dressed in costumes from different cultures. Throughout the trip, robots sing a loop of the Sherman Brothers’ song ‘It’s a Small World’.

The TikTok user called the experience “torture”.
“[Staff] didn’t realise for like 45 mins, everyone was stuck on a boat so we sat there for about an hour stuck with the song on repeat!!”
The ride has been an integral part of the Disney World experience since the 1970s and has garnered a significant amount of hate over the decades.
One TikTok commenter wrote, “I have such a deep hatred of this ride after an incident in the CA park when I was 12. I’m 31 now.”
Another said, “No joke, this legitimately happened to me when I was a kid in the late 80s! They never turned the music off, I can’t hear that song without cringing!”

“My dad got stuck on this ride for hours when he went to Disney World for spring break in the early 70s,” said one TikTok user. “To this day, he can’t stand to hear the song.”
This isn’t even the first ride sinking this year.
According to the New York Post, this is the park’s third sinking incident in two years. A few weeks ago, video footage showed guests climbing out of a car on Splash Mountain because it started sinking.
