Now, getting down to business. My #12 pick on my 25 favorite things at Walt Disney World is:
Under the Sea-Journey of the Little Mermaid!
On my trip last May, it was one of the first things I did on the day of my arrival. I was so excited to finally go on the attraction that all my friends were telling me about. The Little Mermaid is one of my very favorite Disney movies, so I was expecting a lot. And A LOT I got!! The characters, the scenes, the colors, the music..........well, I could go on and on!!
Disney says this about the attraction,
A Fish Out of WaterRelive the tale of how one lucky little mermaid found true love—and legs!
Enter Prince Eric’s castle through an underground cavern at low tide, board a colorful clamshell and take the plunge. You’ll become part of a world where mermaids dream of dancing, fish form a conga line, evil sea witches ensnare souls and unlikely pairs fall in love… and live happily ever after.
Look at This Stuff
Hear all of the movie’s most memorable songs and relive its most magical moments as you glide through this Audio-Animatronics-driven, Omnimover-style darkened ride, from Ariel’s gadget-filled grotto to a boisterous crab-conducted bandstand to a sinister eel-infested lair.
Emerge from the ocean’s depths and watch as Prince Eric and Ariel exchange intimate gazes aboard a rowboat then celebrate their union with a fairytale wedding finale. Immersive special effects make you feel like you’re really there, while new hand-drawn animation sequences depict Ariel as she is best known and loved.
On your undersea journey, you'll encounter an ocean of beloved characters from the film, including Ariel, Prince Eric, Sebastian, Flounder, Scuttle, King Triton and Ursula the sea witch—looming over you at 7.5 feet tall and 12 feet wide!
Get an Ariel ViewAfter the attraction, visit Ariel’s Grotto for a meet-and-greet with your favorite mermaid.
This cave, where the headstrong redhead used to yearn for the world above, is still near and dear to her heart—so much so that Prince Eric moved it next to his castle.
In my humble opinion.........it is a total "must do" for any fan of The Little Mermaid!
