Little Mermaid another classic Disney attraction

I am fortunate to have been able to ride this ride in both California and in Florida. The attraction in the Magic Kingdom is a fantastic immersion into the story. From the beginning entrance that curves you back into the mountain under Prince Eric's castle, to the beautiful shells you climb aboard, it all makes you feel as if you are truly journeying under the sea to join Ariel and all her friends. It is a bright colorful cacophony of Disney music, animation and storytelling. You find yourself in awe and struggling to try to take it all in. It is the ride you should ride first upon your visit to the Magic Kingdom or get a fast pass for later as it is very popular.

I was lucky enough to preview this attraction by accident, they seemed to let a few people in the day before it opened. I was so excited as was going to miss the grand opening day. Me and my best friend clambered aboard the seashell (that was kind of like the seas with nemo's vehicle.) First introduced by scuttle and you move through the whole story of the little mermaid from the under the sea sequence, to ursulas cavern, to kiss the girl and so on. The animatronics are amazing, ariel and ursula flow so wonderfully. The ride is extremely colourful which makes it breathtaking to look at, even from the outside. The imagineers have put a lot of effort into this one and it's definitely worth a ride.
