“Every moment of every day there are Disney guests enjoying ‘it’s a small world’ somewhere around the globe. The 50th anniversary of this attraction represents a celebration of the shared optimism, hope, and humanity of people throughout the world.” Throughout the day, Disney Parks guests participated in events in all five resorts around the world, including in-park sing-alongs, cavalcades and special musical performances. Richard M. Sherman, the Oscar-winning songwriter who composed “It’s a Small World” with his late brother, Robert, led a sing-along at Disneyland Park in California and participated in a Google Hangout that can be seen at SmallWorld50.com. Going into Thursday’s events, visitors from more than 150 nations had already joined the celebration at SmallWorld50.com.

In a very close second is the Harry Potter franchise, which has totaled approximately $2.39 billion. In third place is Star Wars with roughly $1.9 billion, which sits just above the James Bond and Batman franchises. The good news for Marvel is that all signs point to not only continued success but also growth. Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the best-performing post-Avengers sequel for Marvel so far, as the movie represents a 46% improvement over its predecessor in the domestic market. Iron Man 3 grew by 36% and Thor: The Dark World grew by 30%. However, Star Wars can overtake Marvel. With the long-awaited Episode 7 entry in the series set to hit theaters in late 2015, Disney has generated a lot of excitement for the franchise. By hiring top talent like director J.J. Abrams and allowing creative teams ample time to develop content, success in the most popular science fiction universe seems almost assured.
