Script Copy

The "It's A Small World" Alternate VIP Narration Track is a alternate script written by Carlos Moreau for the 1964 New York World's Fair attraction "It's a Small World". Moreau, who was part of Walt Disney Productions' "Special Projects Team," wrote the script on January 10, 1964. The narration, which covers the subject of global communications and it's role in world peace, was more than likely transferred to "Just A Dream Away Volume 2 of 2."

In 2013, a copy of the script was found and photographed by Amelia, Carlos' granddaughter, among his personal effects.

Transcript Edit

  • To begin playing at the entrance to the Europe section, over song.

"As we cross the second threshold of our international tour, I ask you to imagine a world much like the one you see before you - a world without boundaries, a world which you are free to reach beyond any ocean, over any mountain, across any continent, and connect with others at any point on the globe.

Technological advancements are quickly reshaping our world, in a sense, making it smaller than the one we're accustomed to.

We have graduated from watching recorded newsreels in movie theaters to live news programs on televisions, bringing the rest of the world right into our living rooms.

But advancements won't end there. Imagine sending a quick message from a remote mountiantip in the Bavarian Alps to a friend pedaling her bike past Buckingham Palace.

Imagine simultaneously exchanging photos of the moon from London Bridge with a stargazer at the Eiffel Tower.

Imagine sharing live music from the Moulin Rouge with a puppeteer in Barcelona.

Imagine sharing motion pictures of yourself singing and dancing at the tower of Pisa, the Taj Mahal, the shores of Easter Island to everyone around the world in a single instant.

Imagine, everyone being able to do all of this and more on a device that fits in your pocket.

Potentially uniting this world through the infinite power of communication."
