    I will be going to Disneyland park in Anaheim, CA in later March 2024. I was wondering if live action Ariel will still be there so I can finally meet her? It would make my whole year!

    Hi Lauren,

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you for submitting your question to us. 

    Disney character meet and greets are one of the best experiences in the parks! These meet and greets bring alive the magic of beloved characters from Disney shows and movies! It also makes us feel like a part of their story when we can share a part of our visit with them.

    If you have downloaded the My Disneyland app, you can review which characters will be available for meets in the parks on the day of your visit! These character meets are not determined beforehand, so guests can be surprised by which characters will be roaming the parks that day. The Disneyland Resort is known for bringing new characters into the parks - such as Ariel from the recently released live-action movie The Little Mermaid - but are present for a limited time, so they are not guaranteed to be there the day of your visit. It’s as Walt Disney once said - “It’s fun to do the unexpected!”

    You can also follow the official Disneyland Resort social media pages for announcements of any new characters coming to the parks! For the Lunar New Year, Disney California Adventure Park had a meet-and-greet experience with Meilin and Ming from Turning Red! The official social media pages and Disney Parks Blog will be the first to report on new character experiences, so stay tuned for these announcements! “The only thing predictable about life is unpredictability.”

    If you have other questions about the Disneyland Resort, remember - you’ve got a friend in me!
