The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure is a dark ride attraction at Disney California Adventure, Disneyland Resort in Paradise Pier. The attraction was added to the park as part of Disney California Adventure’s $1.5+ billion expansion. Since opening on June 3, 2011, The Little Mermaid has received several tweaks, most recently when Walt Disney Imagineering changed some animation in the attraction and replaced one Audio Animatronic Ariel’s hair (the “soft serve” hair as some fans dubbed it) with more natural looking hair.
If you’re a fan of Walt Disney World, note that this attraction is substantively identical to Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid in the Magic Kingdom’s New Fantasyland…so just pretend these photos were taken in Florida!
We do hope you enjoyed your under-the-sea photo tour, and will come back soon. Even if you aren’t a fan of Disneyland or Disney California Adventure, these shots should have given you a good idea of what to expect from this attraction once it opens in New Fantasyland in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom!
