    Ariel's Greeting Grotto

This attraction's final day of operation was February 27, 2020.
The information below is provided for historical reference.

Description And Comments

Ariel from The Little Mermaid meets guests in a peaceful grotto. This is a meet and greet, so lines can get quite long. To keep the line moving, Disney cast members enforce a strict rule of one picture per a party. That's right, you only get one shot at getting a good picture.

Touring Tips

Ariel's meet and greet has limited hours, so be sure to check them if you wish to meet her. Also note that Ariel's Greeting Grotto is located outside of Mermaid Lagoon. It is located on the walkway to the right of the entrance to Arabian Coast.

How's It Different From the Walt Disney World and Disneyland Versions?

There is a similar Ariel meet and greet area at Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World.

Is it English Friendly?

Yes. Ariel only speaks English.
