Meet everyone’s favorite mermaid at Ariel’s Grotto in the Magic Kingdom. Visitors entering New Fantasyland through the Castle Courtyard gates will pass Enchanted Tales with Belle, Be Our Guest restaurant, Gaston’s Tavern, BonJour Village Gifts and Under the Sea — Journey of The Little Mermaid before arriving at Ariel’s Grotto. Guests approaching from Storybook Circus, however, will find the attraction immediately on the right.
Ariel’s Grotto — This attraction is like many other meet-and-greets for Disney characters: It consists of a basic queue and then time with the popular Disney Princess. Although there are no interactive elements to keep guests entertained, it is, of course, well-themed so you feel like you might be in a craggy cave during your wait. Most of the queue is under cover, so guests will get a break from the Florida sun (or rain).
