Your mermaid dreams will come true when you meet Ariel in her Grotto. Seated in an oversized clam shell, Ariel will invite you to sit beside her to share stories, see her many treasures, and even pose for a few pictures. You’ll find Ariel’s Grotto tucked away beside Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid. The beautiful rock formations and waterfalls that surround her grotto will let you know that you’re in the right place for this one of a kind meet and greet with Ariel in mermaid form. A PhotoPass photographer is available to capture the magic while you enjoy your visit.
Following a temporary closure during the Fantasyland expansion in 2010, Ariel’s Grotto reopened in 2012 claiming its current location. Ariel’s Grotto remains a crowd favorite for many. FastPass+ is available for this attraction. The wait for this attraction can be lengthy at times. Without a FastPass+ you might consider visiting Ariel early in the morning for shorter wait times.
