Can you imagine having a duplicate of every one of your outfits in case the one you want to wear is dirty or has a rip? That's a luxury enjoyed by the dolls in It's a Small World at Walt Disney World, according to costumer Janice Jones.

Jones was on hand for the 50th anniversary celebration for It's a Small World at the Magic Kingdom on April 10. She chatted with the media about how she and her team make sure the dolls always look their best. Click the video accompanying this article to hear from her.

The dolls have the same classic style sported by those in the original World's Fair Attraction five decades ago. The original version of It's a Small World wowed visitors to the fair before moving to Disneyland in 1966. The Magic Kingdom has its own verison, as does Tokyo Disneyland Disneyland Paris, and Hong Kong Disneyland.
