Matt Anderson's Take
The Little Mermaid - Ariel's Undersea Adventure is a great ride with excellent attention to detail and tons to see. You'll board a clam shell ride vehicle and take a trip under the sea into Ariel's world.

The special effects are really neat and there are all sorts of animatronics to watch. The giant Ursula character is great but the detail of the animatronic Ariel is really cool, complete with flowing hair as if it was really under water.

The music is all classic stuff from the movie that, like the It's A Small World theme song, will likely be stuck in your head for a while.

It has all of the great makings of a soon to be classic Disney ride. It's an omnimover (like the Haunted Mansion) so it's always moving and so even long lines seem to move quick. It's nice and long so you have plenty of time to relax and soak it all in. It's slightly dark, nice and cool, has tons to look at, and great music. 5 stars for sure.

This is a nice calm ride for everyone. The lines are usually short and the whole ride is air conditioned. And it explains the basic plot of the Little Mermaid.

Very well done and a great attraction. There is so much to see here that you have to ride it several times, which is easy since the line always moves fast.

The Little Mermaid has always been my favorite! from the movie, the TV show and much more. I remember staying up till 4am just to watch The Little Mermaid series and I still stay up to watch on Disney Jr. The line moves very fast, which is always good, but getting intro the clam is just magical! It puts you inside the movie and takes you down and down under the sea. Everything is in such detail as in this movie. My favorite part is "Kiss The Girl" and "Under The Sea". Taking your kids on this ride, They are just bound to sing the songs! My favorite Prince is Prince Eric! Like he's such a hottie! so jealous of Ariel.

I love Ariel and this ride is like being in the movie. There usually isn't a huge line here and it moves fast even if there is. There is so much to look at on this one that you have to ride it over and over again.
