Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid
One of Disney World’s newest attractions, Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid, is a dark ride featuring the movie’s most beloved songs and characters. The Little Mermaid fans of all ages will enjoy this new feature part of Fantasyland within the Magic Kingdom, as there is no height limit, and it is open every day of the week.
The journey begins when entering beneath Prince Eric’s castle, which is set amid waterfalls and rocky terrain. While waiting in line, visitors can enjoy winding through a cavernous treasure trove, and being entertained by Scuttle with an interactive scavenger hunt.
The ride officially starts when guests hop aboard a clam shell, which takes them through the wrecked hull of Prince Eric’s ship. They are then transported into a scene where Ariel is singing “Part of Your World” in her grotto. While moving through the attraction, scenes continue to unfold featuring dancing fish, Sebastian singing “Under the Sea,” the scary sea witch, Ursula, singing over her magic ball, and Eric and Ariel floating in a blue lagoon. The ride sends guests away with the happily wedded couple waving goodbye while a fireworks display unfolds in the background.
Once the ride is over, visitors exiting the ride can take advantage of the opportunity to meet Ariel in her favorite grotto, and have autographs signed or pictures taken with the famous princess.
