After exiting the Haunted Mansion and having a quick bathroom break we strolled along in to Fantasyland where we head to 'It's A Small World'.

As we head on to the attraction boat Kaitlyn gives us some detailed history about the development of the attraction and how it was personally overseen by Walt Disney.

Whilst riding through the various countries Kaitlyn keeps us informed of lots of unusual and little known facts about the attraction, such as the attraction was originally going to be named 'Children of the World', That there is at least one Sun depicted in each country and the waterway connecting the different countries signifies the rivers of the world.

Also Kaitlyn tells us how Walt decided he wanted a grand gesture at the opening of the attraction in Disneyland, so he organised for children from each of the countries to bring a bottle of water from their country and pour it into the waterway of the attraction thereby signifying that guests would truly be riding on the rivers of the world.

The attraction was created for the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair in support of the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF). The attraction was extremely popular normally having 2-3 hour queues for it. After 2 seasons 10 million tickets had been sold with the proceeds being donated to UNICEF. Tickets at the time cost 90 cents for Adults and 60 cents for children.

The attraction was eventually moved to the Disneyland park where it opened on 28 May 1966.

The attraction here at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom was one of the parks opening day attractions in 1971.

Now, I like 'It's A Small World' however, I do wish I'd brought my ear plugs so that tune wouldn't be with me for the rest of the day... too late it's in my head

Originally Walt wanted the national anthem of each country to be sung by children from that country in their national language. However it was soon realised that the transition between countries on the boat ride would cause a horrible mis-match of sounds and languages.

Walt asked the Academy Award winning brothers, Richard and Robert Sherman, who were hard at work on Mary Poppins, to create a single song that could be sung by Audio-Animatronics figures in multiple languages.

The song, 'It's a Small World (After All)' is a timeless classic and one of the most well known songs of all time.


We leave 'It's A Small World' and head towards the castle with Kaitlyn giving us various details of Fantasyland and the Castle. Here we are interrupted by an impromptu interaction with the Fantasyland Players which added a nice touch to the tour.

We then head through to Tomorrowland where Kaitlyn regales us with the story of the monorail at Disneyland, how Walt wanted a monorail in the park but didn't like the monorails of the time which had the carriages suspended below the track and were bumpy. He discovered a company in Germany that had carriages levitating above the track using magnets and that they produced a smooth comfortable ride.

Walt agreed a deal with the company to help design a system for the Disneyland park that would work as an attraction looping the park. The design and implementation of this new monorail was plagued with problems. Even up to the night before the debut of the attraction they were still designing and building replacement parts.

Walt had invited Vice President Richard Nixon and his family to cut the ribbon for the attraction. The plan was for the monorail to arrive at the station and stop in front of the ribbon and the television cameras. Where the vice president would cut the ribbon and be seen entering the monorail.

Walt had told the driver to keep the monorail powered up to keep the air conditioning functioning. When the vice president and his family boarded the carriage Walt in his excitement asked if the vice president would like to do a loop of the park.

The engineers couldn't believe what Walt had said as the monorail had never managed a single loop without breaking down. On Walts orders they proceeded, probably with every finger and toe crossed. For the first time everything went smoothly and the monorail made it around the park and back to the station, much to the relief of the engineers. But just as the engineers were starting to breathe again, Walt agreed to do a second loop at the request of Nixon's daughter. luckily the second loop also went without any breakdowns.

Then Walt said, "Want to go again?" Just as they started the third loop the monorail came to a sudden halt and the engineers thought it had eventually broken down. This wasn't the case though, the Secret Service had cut the power. It turns out that when the monorail went for it's ride with the Vice President on board the Secret Service who were tasked with never leaving his side, were actually left on the platform, so in effect Walt had inadvertently kidnapped the vice president!

After that little tit-bit we arrive at the Carousel of Progress.

Whilst waiting to ride this attraction Kaitlyn shows us a copy of the poster advertising the Carousel of Progress at the New York World's Fair.

She also goes in to some detail relating to Walt's personal involvement in the design and how this was his favourite attractions.

We get a theatre to ourselves which allows Kaitlyn to talk to us during the show.


As each scene comes around Kaitlyn quickly points out some hidden secrets as she describes the scene and what Walt was trying to portray.

Carousel of Progress consists of 4 'Acts' Act 1 is representing 1890's, Act 2 is representing 1920's, Act 3 is representing 1940's and Act 4 is representing the 21st Century.

At the New York World's Fair the Carousel of Progress was sponsored by General Electric (GE), when it moved to Walt Disney World in 1975, GE committed to a continued 10 year sponsorship. After the 10 years GE did not renew it's sponsorship so Disney had to remove the logos and references to GE that were in the attraction. If you look carefully you will still see some of the GE logos that were either too hard to remove or just missed. The easiest to spot is on the Refrigerator, but it's also on the Dishwasher, Vacuum Cleaner, Cooling Fan and a couple of other places.

The Family depicted in Carousel of Progress are John the Father, Sarah the Mother, Pattie the Daughter and Jimmy the Son.

In Act 1 there is a little girl that doesn't appear in any of the other scenes, so who is this little girl? it's not Pattie as she appears on the opposite side of the stage. Disney has never explained who this little girl is!

Pattie in Act 1

Did you know that Bugs Bunny appears in the Carousel of Progress? Well not the actual Bugs Bunny but at leat the voice of Bugs Bunny. The late 'Mel Blanc' voice of Bugs Bunny and lots of other characters also voiced Uncle Orville.

Uncle Orville


If you look closely you can find some hidden Mickeys and other references in the scenes. For example take a good look at the final scene, at the foot of the Christmas tree you can see a green hidden mickey, thought to be a stage speaker and also a Mickey soft toy. Look at the mantle above the fireplace and you can see a Soldier Mickey.

On the Kitchen countertop there is a Mickey Salt Grinder

On the Whiteboard to the right of the oven are some flight details, it says Flight #1964 arriving at 10:00, this is a nod to the 1964 New York World's Fair.

In Act 3 Pattie can be seen using an exercising machine whilst chatting on the telephone. Look to her right and on the stool is a hat which if you look closely you can see that it is a tribute to Sorcerer Mickey's hat.


I have been on the Carousel of Progress a many times but it was really interesting being talked through the history of each of the scenes and hearing about Walt's influences and decisions for the attraction.

After the ride the tour came to an end with Kaitlyn staying to answer any further questions that we had.

Overall I feel this tour is one of the best that Disney offer, it is certainly great value for money. The tour is also a nice length, at around 3 hours it gives you a vast amount of information and still leaves you lots of play time in the park after it's finished.

On a recent trip to Walt Disney World, Disney offered us the chance to choose some tours we would like to do. After some deliberation I selected the 'Marceline to Magic Kingdom Tour'.


I'd like start off with saying that this tour was provided by Disney free of charge and I'd like to thank them for the experience. Disney did not ask me to write this review and the comments here are my own personal thoughts on the tour.

The Marceline to Magic Kingdom Tour is one of those tours that I think slides under the radar a bit. Most WDW fans have heard of the 'Keys to the Kingdom tour' but it seems there are less people that know of the Marceline to Magic Kingdom Tour which is a lighter alternative to the more in-depth Keys to the Kingdom tour.

The Marceline to Magic Kingdom Tour is a truly magical experience and one that is very affordable. Currently (at time of writing) the tour is a very reasonable $49 + Tax. You do need separate admission to the Magic Kingdom park.

The tour is a 3 hour guided walking tour that is aimed mainly at Adults, however guests as young as 12 may attend. The tour guide shares many little known facts about Walt's upbringing in Marceline, Missouri, as well as provide insider info about the design and operation of several classic attractions, including those inspired by Walt's participation in the 1964 World's Fair.

This review will contain some spoilers, so if you want to be completely surprised then just book the tour, you won't regret it. If you would like to hear about the tour and it's contents then please keep on reading.

My tour was scheduled to begin at 8am, at 07:45 I made my way to the Town Square Theatre where I was greeted by the tour guides, given my tour name badge, lanyard with listening device (Radio ear piece) and offered a complementary bottle of water.

Once all the tour guests had arrived, there were only 5 of us, we gathered outside the Main Street Theatre where our tour guide, Kaitlyn, introduced herself and made sure everyone in the group could hear her through the radio mic.

As we start the tour with a slow walk up Main Street Kaitlyn explains about the town of Marceline and that Walt’s most memorable childhood years were from growing up there. Kaitlyn is very knowledgeable and passionate about the subject, she goes in to details of Walt's family life and the history surrounding the times he was growing up in and where some of things that influenced both his childhood and later adult life came from.

Kaitlyn stops at the Main Street Cinema and explains that Main Street U.S.A. takes its design inspiration from Walt's memories of Marceline and is designed to resemble an idealised American town from the turn of the 20th century. She also talks in some depth about the relevance of the cinema, the fact that it is located in almost the same exact position as it was in Marceline, she explains the posters being displayed in the windows, especially the Cinderella poster and explains some history about how Walt started with the cartoon 'Oswald the Lucky Rabbit', lost control of the rights and had to quickly come up with something else.

She explains how Mickey Mouse was born, originally called mortimer until Walt's wife said she didn't care for the name. How Walt was still under contract to produce Oswald animations and how he secretly produced Steam Boat Willy, Mickey Mouse animations in the basement of his house.

We then continue our stroll down Main Street towards the castle, all the time we are being told the story of Walt and how elements of his life were the inspiration for the lands in his parks.

Continuing the walk though in to Liberty Square and stopping across from the Haunted Mansion. Kaitlyn gives us details for Liberty Square and the Hall of Presidents.


We then move over to the Haunted Mansion.



At the Haunted Mansion we are told the fascinating story of how the original Disneyland Mansion was to be a walk through attraction. The mansion would have a series of secret dark and scary rooms that only the tour guide would know how to enter or leave. The original mansion was going to be scary and Walt decided that it would be too scary for his guests, so it sat empty from 1963 to 1969. in 1969 it was turned over to the design team that brought us the Pirates of the Caribbean and they redesigned the inside of the mansion to what we have today.

Kaitlyn took us through the Haunted Mansion queue line explaining the hidden meaning and secrets of things you can see as you wait in line to ride the attraction.

The first of these secrets or hidden stories can be found at the beginning of the queue. Here you'll find the 'Dreadful Family', a set of 5 busts each having an epitaph inscribed on a plate on their plinths. If you study the busts and the inscriptions you can work out that they killed each other, who killed who and in what order.

To solve the puzzle you have to think of an inheritance trail, who has the money.

To start Uncle Jacob has all the money, so he is the first to be killed, but who killed him. His epitaph says "Greed was the poison he had swallowed, he went first the others followed. His killers face he surely knew, now try to discover who killed who

It says on his epitaph that he swallowed poison, well if we look at the epitaph of Bertie it has a poison bottle on it, so Bertie killed uncle Jacob, but who killed Bertie?

Bertie's epitaph says "Avid Hunter and expert shot, in the end that's what he got".
So Bertie was shot and if we look at the epitaph of Aunt Florence we can see that it has a gun on it. So Aunt Florence killed Bertie.

Who killed Aunt Florence then? Her epitaph says "Never a dishonrable deed, yet found face down in canary seed". So we are looking for bird seed, if we look at the epitaph of the Twins we can see an upside down bird, also behind their heads is a packet of bird seed. So the Twins killed Aunt Florence.

Who killed the Twins? There is only one person left but to confirm it we only have to look at the twins epitaph which says "Departed life while in their beds, with identical bumps on identical heads". If we look at the last family member Cousin Maude's epitaph we can see that it has a hammer on it. So it's confirmed Cousin Maude killed the twins.

So Cousin Maude ended up with the final inheritance but did she get to enjoy it, well she also has an epitaph! If you read her epitaph there is a clue to what happened to her. it says "Our sleeping beauty who never awoke, the night her dreams went up in smoke". A nod here to Disney's Sleeping Beauty from imagineers.

The final mystery, so what happened to Cousin Maude? if you look at the back of Cousin Maude's head you can see that she has used matchsticks to hold her hair in place.

So it would be easy to assume that whilst sleeping the matches rubbed together and set fire to her whilst she slept. However the imagineers have left another clue in the actual Haunted Mansion ride. When you exit the graveyard section your eyes will be drawn to the three hitchhiking ghosts, but here there is a picture of Cousin Maude smiling with all her luggage and holding a lit match. So did she burn in her sleep or did she fake her own death by burning down the mansion as she left?

The next thing Kaitlyn showed us was the mythical engagement/wedding ring embedded in the floor. Just as you pass the dreadful family statues there is a small chained off area with some gates, if you look on the floor just in front of the gates you can see the ring embedded in the floor.

The story goes that it is the ring of the doomed bride in the attic. but in actual fact the ring was nothing more than the left over part of a turnstile gate that was removed. Removing the gate required cutting it from the concrete floor, this left a ring of silver metal in the concrete. As guests saw this an urban myth grew surrounding the ring with various different stories being reported.

The ring even became a popular spot for Disney fans to propose.

At some point Disney paved over the ring and for a long time guests were still looking for the fabled ring that was no longer there. However because it was such an iconic fun easter egg to look for, Disney eventually placed an official ring hidden in the queue area.


Kaitlyn then takes us around the queue explaining the various tombstones. She explains that in the same way, the second storey windows on Main Street are a nod to some of the imagineers that have brought Disney to where it is today, the Tombstones around the Haunted Mansion are a nod to those imagineers that worked on the Haunted Mansion.


Walt gave the job of story telling for the Haunted Mansion to Xavier, he also wrote the script to the Pirates of the Caribbean and the lyrics to the song 'Yo Ho Yo Ho A Pirates Life For Me'.

After the queue tour it's time to take the ride, still having the radio headsets on, Kaitlyn is able to explain the various parts of the ride as we travel in our Doombuggy.

After the ride one of the highlights of this tour is to go back stage, here there is a small area where you can stand. You are below the Doombuggy track and you can see how the famous Ballroom sequence is created using lights, rotating figures, animatronics and Glass Panels. Photography and Video are not allowed in this area.

If you want to know how this all works then do a search for 'peppers ghost illusion'

The Bourne Stuntacular will follow Jason Bourne around the globe as sinister characters pursue him. This action-packed show will feature thrilling chase scenes, punishing fistfights, death-defying leaps and danger at every turn.

And it will all happen right in front of you with live performers, interactive props and an immense LED screen – making it impossible to determine where the live-action ends and the screen begins.

You won’t just watch it – you'll feel it.
