New Little Mermaid Attraction At Disney California Adventure Park Opens Today!

The new highly anticipated ‘The Little Mermaid’ attraction at Disneyland in California has officially opened!

The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure is an exciting new attraction complete with songs and characters from the beloved Academy Award-winning Disney film.

Ariel’s underwater world is located inside a new space on Paradise Pier, and combines the appeal of those classic Disney “dark rides” with wonderful technological innovations to offer guests a personal journey into the scenes of the film.

Once adventurers get “under the sea” they will become immersed in the classic story of “the Little Mermaid” and experience the classic story through advanced Audio-Animatronics technology, a magical cast of characters and a captivating musical score that will entice everyone to sing along.

Its Victorian Exposition-style exterior, including a statue of King Triton and relief carvings of frolicking mermaids (Ariel’s sisters), was inspired by the spectacular pavilions found in the classic seaside amusement parks of the early 20th century.

The one thing Disneyland was missing was a Little Mermaid attraction so I am SO excited about this new ride. My girls were asking for Little Mermaid last time we visited the park back in October and we were told there were some surprises coming up for Summer 2011. I believe we are due for another visit ;).
