The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Undersea Adventure is a new dark ride that debuted at California Adventure officially on June 3, 2011. The old "Palace of Fine Arts" entryway to the now-gone Golden Dreams show remains, and will be part of The Little Mermaid building's facade. But once inside, this is a, well, "whole new world."

You'll travel "underwater" in clam-shell ride vehicles to visit Ariel's grotto, see Sebastien conduct a sea-creature orchestra and encounter Ursula's lair.

A fun dark ride, this is always a fun time and the lines move quickly. Only on the busiest days will you see waits longer than 30 minutes. Bright and vivid colors, iconic music, and one of the best audio-animatronics with Ursula make this a recommended attraction.
