Under the Sea - Little Mermaid

Return to Fantasyland Attractions



The Story: You are invited to be part of Ariel's World by hopping aboard a Clamobile! At the start of your journey, Scuttle, the lovable seagull from the film, greets you by pointing out he's going to tell you a story. "I was born from a blue egg." He then realizes that Ariel's story is more exciting and that's the one he'll share today.

Guests then depart under the sea and meet Ariel, with her gadgets and gizmos a plenty, singing about being part of Eric's world. We then visit Sebastian, and a hot crustacean band, who are trying to encourage Ariel that life under the sea is better than anything they got up there. A trip to Ursula's lair, along with a cameo by Flotsam and Jetsam, shows guests that Ariel has decided to make a bargain to have legs.

A trip back up to land shows the famed Kiss the Girl scene. Luckily, Ariel and Eric kiss, with an unhappy Ursula in the backdrop, and the spell is broken. The two are then wed and as Scuttle concludes, "They lived happily ever after."

The History: When the New Fantasyland was officially announced back in 2009, Under the Sea - Journey of The Little Mermaid was among the E-Ticket experiences that would be placed among this new addition. At the same time, however, Disney's California Adventure (now Disney California Adventure) was undergoing a major refurbishment as well. One of the big attractions being added to Paradise Pier was The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Undersea Adventure. The attraction opened there on June 3, 2011 and became a hit.

One year later, Under the Sea - Journey of The Little Mermaid, which is the same attraction with a different name, opened up as a part of The New Fantasyland on October 12, 2012 during the areas soft opening stage.

The attraction officially opens on December 6, 2012!

Fun Facts: While the attraction doesn't have many stand out fun finds, the queue line is scattered with them! Learn all about these Fun Finds by taking A Closer Look at the Journey of The Little Mermaid line!

Location: Fantasyland.

Touring Tips: The attraction does feature a Fastpass option and is sure to be popular shortly after it first opens. Until then, enjoy a line that is almost always a walk on until December 6th!
