    My family and I will be at Disney World between Oct.13 and Oct.19 of this year and Ariel's Grotto is going to be shut down. My daughters favorite Princess just happens to be Ariel. Will she be any where else in the park those days.

    Hello Wayne!  I have to be honest - I haven't heard anything about Ariel's Grotto being closed for any length of time but you are correct - when I look at the calendar online, it only has availability through September 28th.  I've checked many of the unofficial sites and I don't see this listed under the rehabs and/or closing schedules.  I'm hoping this just means the times haven't been updated on the calendar past 9/28 yet.  My suggestion to you would be too keep an eye on Ariel's schedule.  If it's still not showing available times when you arrive at your resort, confirm with the cast member at check-in where you can visit with Ariel.  The cast member can call the character hot line if needed to get this information for you.  Have a magical vacation, Wayne!
