Because human beings became too obese, Disney redesigned "It's A Small World"
Due to the fact that people living in the world have become heavier than the assumed weight at the time of design, the world's first Disneyland in Anaheim, USA decided to redesign some ride attractions. The attraction "It's A Small World" that rides on the boat is said to be already scheduled to begin adjustment next January.

The boat of "It's A Small World" was designed in 1963 with an average weight of male adults of 175 pounds (about 79 kg) and female adults 135 pounds (about 61 kg). At that time it was perfect for this calculation, but now it seems that an average of 200 pounds (about 90 kg) people came on board. And it became the state that the point where the overweight boat arrived at the bottom comes out.
By the time the attraction is restarted, the waterway becomes deeper and the boat is designed to be able to withstand high weight. In addition, "Pinocchio", "Alice In Wonderland", "Pirates of The Caribbean" etc. tend to decelerate or stop due to overweight, so it seems necessary to redesign.
