    Since Ariel's Grotto at Magic Kingdom is now closed due to the Fantasyland expansion, where can we meet Ariel?

    Hi, Carin! Although Ariel's Grotto went under the sea for good, there are still many Ariel experiences throughout the parks.

    The easiest way to meet Ariel (and see her with an endless selection of dinglehoppers) is by dining with the princesses at Akershus in Epcot.

    An Ariel character meet and greet (possibly with Prince Eric) in the Magic Kingdom will soon start in Adventureland in early May while construction is taking place on the Fantasyland expansion.

    If you really like the Little Mermaid, check out this list I helped a guest put together for other Ariel experiences in the parks.
