"It's a small world" to become a "larger world"

The happiest cruise in the world is getting a makeover. Personal photo, 2004.

"It's a small world," the classic Fantasyland attraction, will close come January 2008 for 10 months of refurbishing, leading to rumors of an an obesity related problem. More specifically, as the average person has become larger, the boats begin to handle less and less.

However, Disney is denying these rumors, with one spokesman stating the problem "has nothing to do with weight" in an interview with the New York Times.

With this renovation, Disneyland fans are hoping the small boats will be more accommodating for any 'larger' guests who happen to ride.

What do you all think about this? Do you think the problem is construction related, or is the weight of guests really to blame?
