We love The Little Mermaid ride in Fantasyland.

Ariel’s Grotto at the Magic Kingdom. No one was in line when we were there! Empty.

No wait line!

The ride stopped 4x, making it the longest Little Mermaid ride we’ve ever ridden on.  But, we didn’t mind!  We were stopped at this scene for almost 2 minutes!  It was nice to relax for a bit!♪♫♪♪♫♪♪♫♪

♪♫♪ Go on and kiss the girl…♫♪♪♫♪

I love this song!  🙂

We also got Fast Passes to see Princess Ariel in her grotto on our last trip in February.  We walked right in…no wait!

Our mom hadn’t seen Princess Ariel in years.

We love seeing our favorite mermaid, Princess Ariel, at Ariel’s Grotto in the Magic Kingdom.  But, the wait line can be long and FastPasses to see her are hard to get.

But, not for us!!!  We were able to get 4 Fast Passes every day of our trip!

She’s so pretty!

We were lucky and scored some really good Princess Ariel pin trades right in front of Ariel’s Grotto.

Our favorite mermaid! (I traded a cast member for this pin right in front of Ariel’s Grotto!)

The cast member we traded with said that a guest was pin trading with some really old Ariel pins from 2007. So fun tracking all those pins down!

Love this ride and love her bridal veil! ❤

A pre-kindergartener named Atlantis won Crazy Hair Day at her school after her mom went all out to style her hair to look just like Princess Ariel from Disney’s “The Little Mermaid,” the little girl’s big sister shared on Twitter Tuesday.

The big sister, coincidentally named Ariel, said her “mom did the mermaid because my name is Ariel and my sister is Atlantis, which is where Ariel lives under the sea :).”

Ariel says she and her baby sister have grown up loving mermaids thanks to their parents.  (Imagine naming your daughters Ariel & Atlantis!!!)
