At the start the backdrops do actually look similar to the ride.

Yikes! I wonder if all the flashing lights are supposed to be flashing?! :shock: I wonder what the Chinese characters on the various buildings say?

They say nothing, they are statues not animatronics.

Noooo, the Chinese writing on the walls! :roll:
I bet this would make people appreciate the real It's a Small World more ~ at least the song isn't the same thing over and over and over...well, sort of :lol:

I agree, Wiz, in some parts it's a darn good knock-off! If you showed some people certain pictures of this ride, they would be certain that they're looking at IASW.

I do love the Zombie angle to it. I wonder how that would go down over here?

I think the worst part (well hillarious from the viewing end) was that they must have tons of stagnant water and, thus, a dead body smell.

That's just freaky. :shock: It's bad enough getting stuck in the real thing, imagine being stuck in zombie IASW.

I could see a movie out of this....

No Zombie version of IASW? Awww, there goes the only chance to get elizabethswann to ride it.

If DLR can have a "holiday" version, why not create a "Halloween" version for WDW IASW?

If the install wasn't so long and it was one of those universal style holidays that they could tie cultures together, you know they would do it.

Those spinning penguins near the end were spot on!

Wow! Ummm...Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Voltron and Zombies...oh my! :shock:
I was beginning to wonder if there were emergency oars on the boat...it couldn't go fast enough!

...really makes you appreciate IASW, huh? ;)

My husband and I laughed so hard watching these. My favorite parts were the Ninja Turtles and the Mattel sign. :lol:
Can't wait to take my twin boys on their first trip to Walt Disney World! Planning on heading there sometime Feb-May 2014!

The other video (also from TPR) of the other knock-off in China had better decor and lighting.
