It was one small world for Hong Kong, one giant promotional event for Disneykind. The theme park officially launched its popular 'it's a small world' attraction on Sunday with a massive celebration including celebrities and politicians, as well as hundreds of kids from across Asia, who helped sing the familiar ditty in many languages. The tune featured on the ride was specially recorded to feature nine regional dialects, and during the ceremony Financial Secretary John Tsang Chun-wah, Secretary for Development Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor and Walt Disney resorts chairman Jay Rasulo were quick to highlight the world harmony message in their spiel. A plaque was also presented to TVB personality Ursule Wong Yu-sze during the event to commemorate her father, the lyricist James Wong. He wrote the Cantonese words to It's A Small World more than 30 years ago, making it a familiar ditty in the territory. Then, to drive home the peace and love message even more, the theme park announced the first recipients of its Disney Children's Fund created through its worldwide outreach arm. The HK$1 million fund was established as part of a pilot programme to help needy kids in Hong Kong. The beneficiary charities are Life Workshop, Industrial Evangelistic Fellowship, Neighbourhood Advice-Action Council, Playright Children's Play Association, Po Leung Kuk Sunrise Court, the Hong Kong Committee on Children's Rights and Treats. It's nice to know global corporations occasionally give back to our small world.
