It’s A Small World Theme Power Discs for Disney Infinity 2.0’s Toybox!Ã‚Â
Theme Disc Skydome – Skies of the World
As you might expect from the ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s A Small World power disc skydome, the sound track is the ever popular, beloved by some, hated by the rest, Ã¢â‚¬Å“ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s A Small World (after all)Ã¢â‚¬Â. The melody transitions through multiple themes within the main song, from the Dutch version, to the Asian, Spanish, Italian, Hawaiian and more. When the Disneyland attraction was originally being designed, it was Walt Disney himself who toured the model and made it clear to the song writers he wanted a song easily translated into many languages. The Sherman Brothers, also responsible for the music of Mary Poppins, among others, penned this catchy iconic song and Walt loved it so much he named the ride after it. The power disc doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t feature any of the lyrics of the song, which may be good new to most, but the different cultures certain ring through clearly in this remixed version.
For fanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s of the ride the sky dome featured with this disc is a wonderland and homage to the many variations of the ride. One side of the dome is looked after by the bright eyeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s sun, while a crescent moon hangs over the other. Many of the set pieces from inside the ride can be seen in the dome, the Sphinx, Windmills, Easter Island Heads, Hot Air Balloons and more. The world is very much a 2D experience and is heavily influenced by the terrific artwork of Mary Blair. The resemblance from her paints and the way Disney is able to transport that artwork into a live medium is remarkable.
The bottom of this sky dome is the great big ocean. A lone boat rocks in itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s waves, while schools of fish jump up in swirling patterns. Be it a nod to the boat part of the ride or a reference to the large oceans that separate our countries, the watery floor fits perfectly with the theme.
Theme Disc Texture – A Small World
The flat terrain is a patch work of greens and blues, making a lovely grass earth texture when seen from a distance. Squares made up of nine sections alternate light and dark in two different blue / green tones, with flowers and leafs accenting in water marks or bunches.
The side walls of the terrain blocks is a mosaic of shapes and colors taken almost exactly off the exterior of the in park attraction. The domes, peaks, squares and panels in their various muted colors draw direct inspiration from the theme park rides large facades in the all the many Disneylands around the world.
Fantasy Terrain 1 – A multi layer terrain piece featuring tall slotted trees in two different tones of green. You can see these large trees in the jungle section of the ride, and in some of the art work of Mary Blair, co-designer of the visuals in the ride.
Fantasy Terrain 2 – Several tall mountain peaks accent this terrain piece. A few small flowers and tall trees accent the four snowy mountains. These mountains are visible in a few parts of the ride, including Switzerland!
Fantasy Terrain 3 – Sitting on four pillars, this square blue and white paneled block is inspired again by the exterior of the attraction. You can see towers very much like this piece lining the large facade of the ride.
Fantasy Terrain 4 – The tall Fantasy tree once again is transformed into a tall themed tree. This two dimensional four sided tree is seen in several places throughout the Small World ride.
Fantasy Terrain 5 – The first animated terrain piece on the list, several flowers of different heights bob up and down & side to side, in the same way the rideÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s robotic characters repeat the same movements over and over.
