History and Trivia

  • At this location: The attraction is built on what was the edge of the closed 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea attraction. Until that ride's lagoon was paved over in early 2005 (the attraction closed in 1994), the lagoon served as an aquatic backdrop for meeting Ariel.
  • The Attraction's History: When the area first opened, there was a foam-paved play area with fountains as well as simply meeting Ariel. Though those items are still in place, they have not been used for several years.
