A Part of Her World

Amusingly, I was just thinking the other day about how since so much of the inside of Disney California Adventure's new Little Mermaid, Ariel's Undersea Adventure dark ride is complete they should start to show it off soon.  And boom, just like that we have this new video from the Disney Parks Blog.

Granted the ride isn't complete at this point, but we're certainly given an idea of how things are coming together inside the attraction.  Personally, I like what I see.  I didn't view this project as the next great Disney E-Ticket attraction, so the ride fits just in line with my expectations.

The above screen cap is of the entrance into the building from the boarding area, I think.

I'm not sure what scene this is from, but obviously they're above the water so it's at the beginning or the end of the attraction.  I want to say Kiss the Girl, but I can't be sure.

And here is a glimpse of the big show room that is in the middle of the attraction.  Once guests are transported under they sea they are greeted with a rousing production of the song of the same name.  Expect a lot of motion from every angle and fun times in this room.

No official opening date for the Little Mermaid has been released, but many expect the ride to be up and running by this Summer.  A similar version will also open at the Magic Kingdom's new Fantasyland in the coming years.
