    A week before we arrive I find out Ariel's Grotto is closed! Where can my 5 year old DD see her other than the show at Hollywood? We have lunch at Cinderella's Castle and lunch at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. What are the chances we'll see her there?

    Hi Todd, I love Ariel too and this is a common concern now that Ariel's Grotto is closed to make way for the new Fantasyland expansion.

    You'll be happy to know that Ariel is greeting guests at the Adventureland Veranda in the Magic Kingdom. Just check your character times guide available with your park map when you enter the park for greeting times.

    Ariel is also appearing at the Princess Storybook dining at Norway's Akershus. I've heard that Ariel is now appearing daily at breakfast at Cinderella's Royal Table. It is not guaranteed she'll be at either dining location because character appearances are subject to change, but hopefully you'll luck out and find her in both spots!

    I hope your daughter gets to be a part of Ariel's world in your upcoming trip and that you have a wonderful vacation! ~Suzannah
