    Ariel and her friends take guests along on all their adventures – both under the sea and above! This is a classic “dark-ride” type attraction where guests sit in clam-shaped vehicles along an Omnimover track moving through the different scenes of The Little Mermaid film. There are a number of special effects with lighting and temperature changes making guests feel as though they have actually gone under water into Ariel's world. In addition, state-of-the-art audio-animatronics bring some of the classic characters such as Ariel, Sebastian, and Ursula to life. All of this is set to a musical score that will have everyone singing along.

    Handicapped Accessibility: Guests may remain in their wheelchairs to experience this attraction.
