Too Big for a Small World After All

Proof that food is more delicious today than it was in the 1960’s:

The Small World’s not getting any smaller, we’re just getting bigger.

Disneyland is having to revamp some of its boat rides, like the Small World, on account of people being too heavy for the little vessels. Designed and built in 1963, the boats were intended to handle men and women of the average weight at the time (175 and 135 pounds, respectively), but the heavier passengers of today are causing the boats to bottom out and get stuck in the flume.

Eat too many Disney happy meals? No Disney rides for you.
