The Tokyo Disneyland version of the attraction is identical to the Magic Kingdom version except for these differences:
- The façade's design is an almost-complete replica of the California counterpart under a different color scheme.
- The loading area is split into two zones instead of one.
- The Asian room features radically different sets and dolls for Japan and China compared to the Magic Kingdom version.
- The ride uses a different, more recent recording of the song sung in Japanese specifically created for this version instead of the original Japanese recording.
- The walls of the African, South American, and Polynesian rooms are painted in colors similar to the Magic Kingdom version before its 2005 renovation compared to the current black walls in the Magic Kingdom version.
- The African and Polynesian rooms have vocals singing in English.
- The finale is sung in Japanese.
- The Goodbye Room is shorter than the one in Florida.
Dressed in the traditional costumes of their countries, children of the world sing "it's a small world" as you voyage from Europe, through Asia, Africa, Central America, and the islands of the South Pacific. It's the happiest cruise that ever sailed!
