    We are planning a trip to Disney world in February 2011. Now that Ariel's Grotto is closed, do you know if there is another location to meet Ariel, either as a mermaid or human?

    Hi Hana,

    You can sometimes meet Ariel as a human when dining at Akershus in Epcot or Cinderella's Royal Table in Magic Kingdom.  The princesses rotate, so seeing her is not guaranteed.

    She can also be seen at the Adventures of the Little Mermaid in Hollywood Studios.  However, I don't believe that there is a character greeting opportunity at this time.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
