Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid, a dark ride in Fantasyland at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom.
Written by Robert Niles
You'll ride in clamshell-shaped seats through Ariel's undersea world, enjoying the music of Sebastian the Crab, then escaping the lure of Ursula the Sea Witch in this abbreviated retelling of Disney's animated hit The Little Mermaid.
Typical dark ride but glad it's there 8/10 - Owen Scott
So, not as amazing as it could be (not necessarily should be). In many ways, it's as charming as most older Disney dark rides. However, just because it's an omnimover ride system, I think manu have the unfair expectations of a ride as grand as Mansion or Pirates. - Ringmaster A
You closed Snow White's Scary Adventures but opened THIS. Shame on you Disney! - Angela White
I wish I could rate this ride higher... I was really holding out hope that it would be something a little different. I thought that the audio animatronics were beautiful, and of course, I love the story of the Little Mermaid, but it left me wanting more. It is an improvement over Nemo, so that is something and the queue is pretty. - Michelle Morgan
Wonderfully themed queue and great animatronics. Mostly the best-of scenes from the movie. - Aaron McMahon
When the outside it better then the inside you are doing something wrong. The master story tellers at Disney fail to come up with an original story with original music but rehash the original story in 4 minutes in a mediocre ride that looks like it could have been made in the 80's. It's sad. - O T
