ABOUT THE ATTRACTION:
Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid is a dark ride attraction in the Fantasyland section of the Magic Kingdom. It is themed to the Disney animated film The Little Mermaid and features set-pieces, animatronics, and songs based on the movie.
Opening Date: December 6th, 2012.
Bite-Sized Review: Under the Sea has always been one of the most forgettable attractions in the Magic Kingdom for me. Part of the New Fantasyland Expansion, the ride has always flown under the radar compared to Seven Dwarves Mine Train and Be Our Guest Restaurant. There’s nothing inherently bad about the ride, it’s just that it’s super forgettable despite having colorful set design and some catchy songs. The outdoor facade and queue is absolutely beautiful though, and is probably my favorite part of the entire experience.
ATTRACTION GRADE: 4/10
