    I'm bummed to hear Ariel's Grotto is gone. My three under 4 LOVE her. Where else can we meet Ariel?

    Hiya, Mindee!

    Your dream Disneyland Resort vacation is almost here! I’m sorry to hear your disappointment about missing Ariel’s Grotto. If you haven’t experienced the reimagined Lamplight Lounge at Pixar Pier, I highly recommend trying it out during your visit! The decor and cuisine are top-notch.

    You can still help your little ones become part of Ariel’s world by visiting Fantasy Faire, located next to Sleeping Beauty Castle. There, your girls can meet Disney Princesses (including Ariel!) at Royal Hall and watch comedic live performances at Royal Theatre. In Royal Hall, Princesses receive Guests in their own special nook, allowing for an intimate interaction without interruption. You can take pictures, sign autographs, and chat about “whosits and whatsits galore”!  Be sure to download the Disneyland app ahead of time to check Ariel's availability, since the Princesses rotate throughout the day. 

    For your next visit, don't miss Disney Princess Breakfast Adventures, beginning Saturday, March 30, 2019, at Napa Rose. This one-of-a-kind adventure includes a three-course breakfast, personal Princess interactions, photo opportunities, a takeaway bag, and themed activities. 

    I hope you and your family have a fin-tastic time visiting Ariel and her many friends at the Disneyland Resort!
