Set Sail

Step into a clam to visit favorite characters and enjoy unforgettable music from the animated classic, The Little Mermaid.

The Adventure

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.”

Characters

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!

Music

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."

“Clam-mobile” Vehicle

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.
