Disneyland's 'It's a Small World' set to reopen next week following repairs prompted by flooding

Disneyland's beloved "It's a Small World" attraction is expected to reopen next week, in time for Christmas.

A flood last month threatened to close the classic boat ride for the entire holiday season, but testing began Thursday along the water canals.

Park officials said the repairs would normally take months to fix, but crews have been working nonstop to get it done in about three weeks.

During the ride's temporary shutdown, the "It's a Small World" lighting ceremony has continued to take place nightly, and "It's a Small World" projections have been an ongoing part of the park's "Believe...In Holiday Magic" fireworks display.

The Walt Disney Co. is the parent company of this station.
