My toddler son loved hearing all the songs. The only part he thought was a little scary was Ursula.

This time only my daughters (12 and 10) rode, and they felt like it was a "kid" ride.

If you love the movie, you will love this. There are long wait times, best to hit this ride first thing, or try and get a Fastpass+

If you are a fan of the movie you will enjoy this attraction!

Nice ride...especially for young people. Continuous loading so the line keeps moving.

I don't really remember this ride. We went on it the year it opened during Not so Scary, so it was late and we were tired, but I only remember the walk to the ride, not the ride itself. The walk was pretty...

Love this ride not because of the ride, but because of the movie and music. Fun stuff to look at in line.

Exceeded my expectations. Now it's one of my favorites

Nice family ride. The colors and details are incredible.

If you are a fan of The Little Mermaid movie, you will like this, as it is pretty much a retelling of the story. We try to do it every trip.
EvaKi gave this a rating of 7 on 06/14/2016 at 11:20:31 am EDT
The queue is very cute. This is a nice bright ride but it's very short

Super cute ride! Love going backwards down into the sea! Much better since they decided to dim the lights!

Who doesn't love Ariel's story. Great ride for families
Gingerk gave this a rating of 8 on 06/07/2016 at 12:00:00 pm EDT
It was neat, but I was expecting it to be closer to the one we saw detailed in specs in an extra on our "Little Mermaid" DVD.

May be interesting for the under 10 crowd. In my opinion well below Imagineering of the past. Looks chea
Rob0519 gave this a rating of 5 on 05/27/2016 at 10:58:28 am EDT
It is a welcome ride to the Magic Kingdom. A nice easy relaxing ride and it is cool inside! But the lines are usually really long. Great for the Little Mermaid lover.
CEK40 gave this a rating of 8 on 05/27/2016 at 9:19:26 am EDT
Such a fun ride, especially if you grew up in the era of Little Mermaid. Seemed to have afternoon fastpasses quite frequently
zettarooski gave this a rating of 10 on 05/27/2016 at 9:18:21 am EDT
A fun ride and a fun queue but if your little princess must see it during peak season, be sure to get a fast pass
MmichelleM gave this a rating of 8 on 05/27/2016 at 7:31:28 am EDT
I have to say this one disappointed a little- just not my cup of tea.
Babby58 gave this a rating of 6 on 05/27/2016 at 7:24:35 am EDT
Nice and relaxing if you don't stress out with a long wait time.
Ms. Earson gave this a rating of 7 on 05/27/2016 at 12:46:16 am EDT
Not worth an hour wait for my family but I think it would be magical if you are a Little Mermaid fan.
megeed gave this a rating of 7 on 05/26/2016 at 11:24:47 pm EDT
I wouldn't wait standby more than 15 mins if you don't have a fastpass. Every time I ride I'm still disappointed that it's not as impressive as it could be.
