    Thanx for answering my questions. It's great having a place like this. What exactly is Ariel's Grotto? Is it opened all day or just at 10am like I see on the schedule?

    Hi Cynthia - I'm glad you are enjoying the Moms Panel.  We love answering all of your questions!

    Ariel's Grotto is located right near the Dumbo ride, and is an area where Ariel greets her guests.  It is open all day, but generally does open an hour after the rest of the park.

    In addition to meeting Ariel, kids can jump around in some small fountains.  My son loves playing in those fountains, so I usually bring a change of shorts and a swim diaper.

    The wait to see Ariel can be pretty long, so if you do decide to go, I'd suggest you get there at opening.

    Have a great vacation!
