Under The Sea Journey of the Little Mermaid Ride

Go through the underwater world of Ariel on Under the Sea Journey of the Little Mermaid! Located in Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, it is the same ride as The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure in Disney California Adventure.

Both rides take guests through Ariel’s world and along her journey from being a mermaid to becoming human.
