    How long would it take approximately to get from Splash Mountain to Ariel's Grotto for a fastpass reservation? Max of 30 minutes or maybe less than that?

    Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Megan!

    Making your way from the Briar Patch to the deep blue sea will be an easy peasy journey that will take you past Tom Sawyer Island and the Liberty Square Riverboat and into Fantasyland. According to the “Get Directions” feature in the My Disney Experience mobile app, the walk should take nine minutes (but I’d give yourself 15 in case you want to pop into a shop or grab a Mickey Ice Cream Bar along the way.

    To see the “turn-by-turn” directions for yourself, tap on the map at the top of the home screen on the app. Then choose “Attractions” from the drop down menu and “Filter” for “Magic Kingdom Park.” From the list of attractions, choose “Under the Sea - Journey of the Little Mermaid” (which is right next door to Ariel’s Grotto) and then tap “Get Directions.” (You can also use the magnifying glass search icon at the bottom of the screen to find "Meet Ariel at Her Grotto.") Type in Splash Mountain as your starting point and then tap the blue “See Walking Directions” button.  Please keep in mind that your travel time may vary based on crowds, parade routes, and potential closures in the area for special events. You can also always ask a Cast Member for directions, too.

    Enjoy your visit with Brer Rabbit and Ariel, Megan! Please let us know if there’s anything else we can do to help make your journey a magical one.
