I finally got to see the Journey of the Little Mermaid. Overall I really enjoyed it and was probably most thrilled just by the fact that Disney built a new omnimover dark ride. The exterior of the attraction is stunning and is the focus of today's pictures.
This is one of the things that I don't like. The main reason is that it just doesn't make sense. A typical female figure head, even if cartoonish, would make more sense than having Ariel. Nitpicky, perhaps, but how I feel.
A family of ducks frolick in the shadow of Eric's castle.
The water features of the area are one of the best parts. It brings back some of the feeling that was lost with the removal of 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, a loss that I still lament. Somewhere there is supposed to be an image of the Nautilus carved into the rock but I didn't see it this trip.
Next time we will journey further into the grotto.
