The Voyage of the Little Mermaid is a must see for any Little Mermaid fan. It was one of the stage shows I got to see when I went to Disney World back in August 2009 with my family. Being a huge princess fan, my mom insisted that we stop and see it. I have to so I really injoied it, not that thought that I wouldn't. It was a 4D show which gave the feeling that you were in the world of Little Mermaid. They preformed some of the most popular songs from the movie, such as "Under the Sea" and "Part of Your World". The performance of "Under the Sea" was my favorite part. The performance utilised puppetry, black lights, and bubbles that rained down on the audience at the end of the song. The song is fallowed by "Part of Your World" then a climatic ending in which Ursala is defeated. A warning to anyone with small children or babies Ursala might spook or feak them out. Did hear some crying children. Overall it's a mistsee and a good way to get out of the heat.

Disney's "The Little Mermaid" is a beloved classic animated tale for many, and until recently, has never had much of a presence in the Disney parks. But, tucked away in a back section of Disney's Hollywood Studios theme park lies "The Voyage of the Little Mermaid". This quick retelling of the story of mermaid Ariel wanting to be human is done with a combination of live actors, animatronics, puppets, and a variety of other lighting techniques. The result is a very entertaining little show for most....but one that may be frightening for very small children.

For most, it's harmless fun as you watch the live actress playing Ariel interact with Sebastian and Flounder, singing the more well-known songs from the beloved film. But, the theater itself in which you sit is dark....and then, when Ursula the Sea Witch comes out, it won't take much to give your little ones some doozy nightmares from her.

But this is just a 17-minute show, and soon everyone will be happy again singing Little Mermaid tunes and enjoying the happy ending.

For me, personally, I've never been a real fan of that particular animated film, but this show surprised me a little. The puppetry, live action singing, and animatronics are pretty impressive.

I've gotta say....check it out.

One last Voyage?

As any Disney World show does, Voyage of the Little Mermaid does a fantastic job for a live storytale of their classic Little Mermaid.

There are several moments throughout the show that make it worthwhile for any Disney visitor. If you have not seen it yet, make sure to see it while you can because rumors are starting to roll out about a possible overhaul of Hollywood Studios that could include a change to Voyage of the Little Mermaid because of the new ride at Magic Kingdom's Fantasyland that feature Ariel and friends.
