Donald directs us to the tram...but why is he so angry?
I can't remember the last time I went to Disneyland, but one overwhelming memory about that last experience has been haunting my psyche ever since that fateful day: the terror I experienced during the Small World ride. I was just an young, impressionable child at the time, and for all I knew the gondola ride was going to descend into the realm of Hades himself. I think that most of the details have been thankfully repressed, but the one image that I can't get out of my mind are the demonic looking dwarf creatures whose faces are locked in perpetual, maniacal laughter.

Unfortunately, I did not get to conquer my fear of the Small World ride on this visit because the ride was closed for maintenance. I suspect that the real reason for this closure was that the dwarf creatures ran rampant and devoured a small child. Nevertheless, I did get to explore the rest of the park, and, despite some initial doubts, it was still as magical as I remembered.
