    Real talk. I’m trying to plan out my Disney life when it comes to the live action release of The Little Mermaid. Is Disneyland going to have any events or screenings related to the new version of my favorite Disney princess?

    Royal greetings, Lisette!

    Well, look at what the catfish dragged back in…to planDisney! Since life is sweet here, you've got to be here naturally! I must say, I'm just as excited as you are about the live-action release of The Little Mermaid. It's always a thrill to see such a beloved story brought to life in new and exciting ways.  I’ve already pre-ordered my Mermaid Ariel doll based on the newest version of the film to add to my collection of gadgets and gizmos!

    Now Lisette, us planDisney panelists are guests at the resort, just like you. I wish I had the inside scoop on what mysteries lie in store, but all I have to go on is experience. So, as for what specific activities the Disneyland Resort will host, I can't say for sure if they'll have any events or screenings related to the new movie. However, knowing Disney, they are sure to have something special planned for us fans. I remember when my personal favorite film, Beauty and the Beast was reimagined as a live-action feature, there was a special exhibit featuring props and costumes from the film on display at Disney California Adventure. So, I'll bet my favorite dinglehopper that’ll be the case in just a few short months for Princess Ariel’s adventure as well! 

    Or maybe they'll have sneak peeks of scenes from the film just like there were for the live-action release of Mulan. Perhaps a live performance by a hot crustacean band at one of the park's theaters is in our future? Whatever they have in store, I'm sure there will be great experiences for us fans of our beloved mermaid tale. After all, Disneyland is the place where dreams come true! So, I suggest keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog, or on the Disney Parks’ Official Instagram page for all the latest updates or announcements.

    In the meantime, let's continue to get excited for this new version of your favorite story! I can't wait to hear what you think of it once you've seen it! As I always say, life is de bubbles under the sea, and I have a feeling this new movie will capture that same sense of magic and wonder as the original.

    Lisette, have you thought about having breakfast at the Disney Princess Breakfast Adventures experience around the release of the film this May? That's my personal favorite way to interact with Ariel and have a conversation with her. This would be a great opportunity for you to share your thoughts and opinions on the upcoming movie directly with Her Royal Highness.

    Well Lisette, as Sebastian would say, it's time for me to march me-self straight home right now and swim away to my next adventure. But as Ariel would say, "I want moooooooore" of your questions, so don't hesitate to swim on back to me when you need help. Until then, keep your head above water and your fins flapping.

    That’s why it's hotter under the water,
