    Is Ariel grotto open at Walt Disney world

    Hey there Thomas and welcome to planDisney!

    Life is the bubbles at the Walt Disney World Resort and I'm happy to see that you plan to be part of that world in 2024. While you wait for your visit to draw nearer, I strongly recommend getting acquainted with Disney Parks Blog to keep you up to date with all things magical. It seems that every time I look up there's either something new and exciting coming or something well-loved finally returning to The Most Magical Place on Earth.

    Speaking of well-loved, our girl Ariel definitely fits that description. Her grotto is one of my favorite meeting locations in the theme parks. On her first visit, my goddaughter was about to run over everyone waiting in line when she realized who we were going to see. Sadly for us poor unfortunate souls, Ariel took those fancy new legs and stepped out for a test drive and hasn't made it back to her grotto just yet. While we don't have an exact date for when she'll be back there, you can still see her flipping her fins all over Magic Kingdom Park during the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade. Look for her waving from on high in her giant clam shell. 

    Thomas, I hope I've been able to help you today. If you have any other questions, please come back for another chat. It won't cost much, just your voice!

    Happy planning!
