Step into a clam to visit favorite characters and enjoy unforgettable music from the animated classic, The Little Mermaid.
The adventure begins when you step inside an elegant Victorian Exposition-style building. Marvel at the ornate 86-foot-long, hand-painted mural, as you climb aboard a giant clam shell—your “clam-mobile.”
Slowly descend to an underwater world. Waiting for you are favorite characters from the film, like Ariel, Prince Eric, Sebastian, Flounder, Scuttle and the wicked sea witch Ursula—a towering figure 7.5-feet tall and 12-feet wide!
In addition to astounding sights, delight in memorable music. You may find yourself singing along with unforgettable songs, like "Part of Your World," "Under the Sea," "Poor Unfortunate Souls" and "Kiss the Girl."
The giant clam shell vehicle is a characteristic of elaborate "Omnimover"-style rides, like the classic Haunted Mansion attraction.
Omnimover attractions feature vehicles with speakers that project high-energy songs to riders. Another attribute of these attractions are the state-of-the-art Audio Animatronics characters and special effects that put you inside the scene.
Where else in the Disneyland Resort can I see Ariel, The Little Mermaid?
The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel's Undersea Adventure is one of the many additions to the recently reimagined Disney California Adventure Park.
