Have you met Princess Ariel in her grotto????

Visiting Ariel’s Grotto at the Magic Kingdom. No one was in her greet line when we were there.
No wait line, walked right in!
She’s backkkk…..


We love The Little Mermaid ride.

The last time we rode on the ride, it 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…♫♪♪♫♪
