    What dates will Ariel be at Hollywood Studios? The blog article said the actress would be there but did not give dates.

    Hi, Dana!  Thanks for being part of our world here at planDisney!

    My family and I went to the theater this afternoon to see the new live-action movie, The Little Mermaid.  We absolutely loved this beautiful film, and I hope that I'll get to visit Ariel during my next trip to Walt Disney World Resort

    Ariel from the new live-action story began meeting with Guests at Disney's Hollywood Studios on May 26.  You can currently find her at Walt Disney Presents.  While we have been told that Ariel will only be visiting Disney's Hollywood Studios for a limited time, we do not yet know the exact date that she will leave the park to return to her adventures with Prince Eric.  I recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all of the latest news and announcements.

    In addition to meeting Ariel from the new live-action story, there are currently lots of other ways to celebrate The Little Mermaid in Disney Parks this summer.  From beautiful ocean-inspired merchandise to delicious treats, there is so much to flip your fins about.  If you'll be visiting Magic Kingdom Park, keep an eye out for Disney PhotoPass photographers near Prince Eric's castle in Fantasyland.  You can ask your photographer about a special Animated Magic Shot that places your photo among the gadgets and gizmos in Ariel's grotto.  

    Dana, I hope that life is the bubbles for you during your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!  If you have any other questions, swim on back to planDisney!
