BACKSTORY (Nov. 27, 1997–Present): Edited from Wikipedia:
The attraction is closed in late October to receive temporary holiday decorations inside and outside, and reopens in early November before the start of the busy holiday tourist season. The overlay has proved very popular and at one point during its run needed the use of FASTPASS machines (which have since been removed). The attraction is the same boat voyage through many regions of the world, though the main theme song is not played fully. Instead, the children sing "Jingle Bells" and a bridge of "Deck the Halls" in addition to the main theme. The holiday overlay has since been implemented at Tokyo Disneyland with similar decorations, if not more, than the Disneyland version.
From now on the Disney characters and The Spirit of America room (formerly the covered transition room) are joining in the "It's a Small World Holiday" at Disneyland.
