Live Action “The Little Mermaid” Meet & Greet Begins May 26th at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

    Disney World has announced that guests will be able to meet Ariel from the live-action story of “The Little Mermaid” beginning May 26th. Here’s the announcement:

    Beginning May 26, to celebrate the opening of Disney’s film, “The Little Mermaid,” guests will be able to visit with Ariel from the new live action story “The Little Mermaid” at Disneyland Resort and at Walt Disney Presents in Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort.

    “The Little Mermaid” film is a reimagining of the 1989 animated film with enhanced depth and dimension, including additional character backstory and motivations, new and reimagined characters, and unique elements that expand the world of the original film. We’re always looking for ways to build connection through the power of our stories, and we are excited for new and existing fans to enjoy Ariel from both the animated and live action stories this summer at Disney Parks.

    Guests can use the My Disney Experience app to find character locations for both Ariel from the live action story and Ariel from the animated story.

    At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Ariel will meet with guests in Walt Disney Presents, taking over a rotating character location toward the end of the gallery. Previously, guests have been able to meet Star-Lord and Baby Groot, Moana, and, most recently, Sulley from Monsters Inc.
