    I heard Ariel's Grotto is now closed. We are coming late May where can we see Ariel as a mermaid?


    Yes, Ariel's Grotto is now closed as they expand the Fantasyland area of the Magic Kingdom. As for seeing Ariel, there are two choices of note. The first is seeing her at the Hollywood Studios show, Voyage of the Little Mermaid (a show, not a greeting area). The second is to see her as one of the princesses that frequently (translation: NOT GUARANTEED TO BE THERE ALWAYS!), host the Restaurant Akershus meals (Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner) in the Norway pavilion at Epcot.

    You might also consider going by the Toontown Hall of Fame in the Magic Kingdom, where a rotating set of characters are available. 

    Final suggestion. Ask a cast member when you get to a park the first day you get there. They have a main line where they can check for a few days, and they can tell you yes or no, and where.

    Have a magical vacation!
