New Treats & More Coming to Disney Parks in Celebration of ‘The Little Mermaid’

As we previously reported, the new meet-and-greet with the live-action Ariel officially launched today in the Disney theme parks, and Disney has announced more exclusive offerings in celebration of the film’s theatrical debut today.

First, there is a new animated Magic Shot where your photo joins the gadgets and gizmos in Ariel’s grotto. With a little bit of Disney magic, your photo is framed and sits on the ledge you see in the film. This Magic Shot is available near Prince Eric’s castle in Magic Kingdom.

There have been a ton of new treats and sips announced this week, and today, there are even more that have been released. This time, they’re Little Mermaid themed; take a look.

Walt Disney World Resort

Bubbles at Sea, a Gold Peak sweet green tea, lemon juice, pineapple and guava topped with boba pearls, and a splash of shimmer is available at multiple locations. At Disney Springs, swing by Amorette’s Patisserie to try a new sweet treat: The Little Mermaid Pop, a caramel sea salt pop with ocean fondant decor!

And at Magic Kingdom Park, be sure to try out the Divinely Diabolical, a fun twist on a classic cookies and cream shake, available for purchase at The Friar’s Nook. Then head over to taste Part of Your World, a delicious DOLE Whip Strawberry swirled with Purple Cheesecake soft serve available at Storybook Treats.

At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, check out The Little Mermaid Donut Milk Shake, a mango-guava-ginger milkshake topped with whipped cream and a pineapple-mango seashell donut, available at Hollywood Scoops.

Visit Walt Disney Presents at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and make your way through the queue to discover stunning concept art from the development of the new film – vibrant illustrations following Ariel’s journey from sea to land. Then step into the picturesque setting of Prince Eric’s shoreside castle, where you are invited to meet Ariel on a beautiful terrace with sweeping views of the sea, pictured below.

In addition to everything we’ve shown you above, there is an entirely new line of merchandise, jewelry, sunglasses, makeup, and even a special blend of coffee from Joffrey’s. See it all in the Disney Parks Blog post.
