INTRO TRANSCRIPT:

Welcome to Attraction Checklist.

As a companion piece to last episode, this episode we are headed to Disney California Adventure to ride The Little Mermaid – Ariel’s Undersea Adventure.  The guide map’s lackluster description of this ride says, “Be part of Ariel’s world aboard this attraction!”  There are no age or height requirements for this attraction and the Thrill Level describes the ride as bing a Loud, Dark Slow Ride.

Before we set sail, here are five fast facts about The Little Mermaid – Ariel’s Undersea Adventure at Disney California Adventure.

1.  Located in the Paradise Pier (soon to be Paradise Park) section of Disney California Adventure, The Little Mermaid – Ariel’s Undersea Adventure officially opened on June 3, 2011.  It took over the spot in the park previously occupied by Golden Dreams, a film about the history of California narrated by Whoopi Goldberg.

2.  The statue of King Triton on the attraction’s exterior was related there from the, now defunct, Triton Gardens in Disneyland.

3.  The mural that can be seen in the ride’s load area where you board your clam-mobile is 86 feet long and was painted entirely by hand.

4.  The animatronic figure of Ursula in the attraction is the biggest on the ride measuring 7 1/2 feet tall and 12 feet wide. 

5.  This attraction boasts a tribute to the movie The Incredible Mr. Limpet, a film where Don Knotts turns into a fish named Mr. Limpet.  In the Under the Sea sequence of the ride, Mr. Limpett can be spotted directly across from where Ariel is dancing.

So now, let’s ride The Little Mermaid: Ariel’s’ Undersea Adventure at Disney California Adventure and see how it compares to Magic Kingdom’s Under The Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid.  Suzie is along for the ride today and after we ride we’ll discuss out thoughts on this attraction.  This is a binaural recording so if you have headphones put them on now as we experience, The Little Mermaid – Ariel’s Undersea Adventure at Disney California Adventure.

Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid – Magic Kingdom – Attraction Checklist #035

http://www.attractionchecklist.com – Let’s head to Magic Kingdom and visit Ariel on Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid.  John B. deHaas is along for the ride and we discuss our thoughts on this attraction after we ride.  Recorded on October 27, 2016.

INTRO TRANSCRIPT:

Welcome to Attraction Checklist.

It’s time to head to Fantasyland in Magic Kingdom and visit with Ariel on Under The Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid.  The Magic Kingdom guide map describes the ride by saying, “Descend below the waves for a splashy musical adventure.”  There are no age or height requirements for this attraction and the Thrill Level describes the ride as being a Slow Ride.  FastPass+ is available for this attraction

Before we begin flipping our fins, here are five fast facts about Under the Seas – Journey of the Little Mermaid at Magic Kingdom.

1.  Under the Sea – Journey of The Little Mermaid officially opened at Magic Kingdom on December 6, 2012.  It was built on the site of the former 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea attraction.  Before that classic ride was removed, imagineers saved several jars of water from the 20,000 Leagues lagoon.  In a special ceremony with The Little Mermaid attraction opened, the water they’d save was aded back into the new water features as a nod to the original ride at that location.

2.  With a ride length of 5 1/2 minutes, Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid is one of the longer rides in Fantasyland.  It also boasts an interactive queue area where guests can help crabs sort out Ariel’s thingamabobs while they wait to ride the attraction.

3.  Original Little Mermaid stars Jodi Benson and Pat Carrol lend their voices to Ariel and Ursula on the attraction while Phillip Lawrence provides the voice of Sebastion and Chris Edgerly voices Scuttle.

4. The attraction reportedly boasts over 180 characters!  Most of them, around 120 characters, are featured in the Under the Sea sequence of the ride.

5.  Finally, if you’re a fan of finding hidden Mickeys in the Disney parks, this attraction boasts one of the most unique Hidden Mickeys ever.  Imagineers constructed the rocks outside the queue for the attraction in such a way that the sun creates a Hidden Mickey only once a year at noon on November 18th, Mickey Mouse’s Birthday!

Let’s hop aboard our clamshell to a pay a visit to Ariel and friends.  Along for the ride is John B. deHaas and he and I will discuss our thoughts on this attraction after the ride audio.  This is a binaural recording so if you have headphones put them on now as we experience, Magic Kingdom’s Under the Sea – The Journey of the Little Mermaid.
