Should be closed. Attention please, but Its A Small World has arrived in Epcot. Its corny and the line is short--too short to mean that its a good ride. There was little music on this ride, but in the queue there was an annoying Mexican music group playing guitar for the restaurant near the line. Its just as bad as Its a Small World, but because it has no music, it makes you want to nap.

The beginning view of the temple is the best part, but I also like the older rides not everything has to be new. I worry that these parks throw away their history too fast. Keep the ride there. As this ride continues to get ignored it is time for some basic updates inside the ride.

This is a great ride to go and relax on, there are never any queues and although its kind of corny its still pretty good entertainment. Youll definetely come away with the song (played throughout the ride) stuck in your head. The rest of the pavilion is superb as well, especially if you catch the mariachi band playing it makes you really feel like youre in an Mexican fiesta.

I have to hand it to this ride, if only for the fact that its a hidden little secret, almost never has any line whatsoever, is a great way to cool off and escape the masses, and besides, its a nice ride of its own accord. When this first opened, I used to love riding it all alone - it was like a world totally apart from the clamor and crowds of EPCOT. Definitely worth a ride.

You start out by walking into a Myan pyramid. You walk to the far side of the pyramid and you are in the Mexico Pavalion. Its a simulated out-door market which is very convincing. Past the market, there is a resturant on a river, and on the other side of the river there is a rain-forest with an erupting volcano in the distance. You make your way towards the river, and enter a building where you load into boats. Your boat is then rolled to the end of the conveyer belt and drops into the water and starts free floating from the source of the river (a little waterfall) into where the river gets wider and from there you can look on both shores and look at the fake rain-forest on one side, and the people eating dinner in the market on the other side. Your boat then makes it way towards some old Myan/Incan ruins, and follows the river inside. You are in an old temple with a statue at the end that comes alive and tells you about Mexico. Once at the statue, you turn and go into another room where you see people dancing on waterfalls, and then leave this room. You then enter a cave where you see what tourists could do in Mexico through cracks in the cave walls. You then exit the cave and go into another Market. Sales people try selling you stuff by running from window to window, and then the ride loses all of its dignity and turns into Its a Small World with lots of dancing and singing toys. The last big scene is of Mexico City at nighttime with lots of fireworks up in the sky. There are also life size Small World dolls dancing, and your boat goes back into a tunnel and up onto a conveyor belt so you can exit back into the mexico Pavalion.

Just like a lot of the rides in the World Showcase. Only good when youve been walking from pavillion to pavillion for an hour.

i hated this ride. It is like a life sized its a small world. it was corny as heck, i hope that disney realizes that this ride always get lines smaller than 5 min. and changes it to something a little more entertaining.

A non-annoting mexican version of Its A Small World. I really liked the temple at the beginning and there was almost never a line.

Keeping many of the key elements and adding the "Three Caballeros" certainly makes it a better attraction.

I honestly did not like this ride, which Translated is the River of Time. It was way to corny, and desperately needs updating. If you didnt like Small World, then stay very far away from this ride. Actually dont. The mexico pavilion is wonderful excluding the ride.
