My Disney Experience App Differentiates Between Live-Action Ariel and Animated Ariel Meet & Greets

    With the live-action retelling of The Little Mermaid now in theaters, guests can meet the live-action version of Ariel at Disney’s Hollywood Studios! Ariel meets in Walt Disney Presents in a rethemed space near the end of the gallery exhibit. Guests can also find movie-used props from the film on display and watch a preview of the movie as well.

    Over in Magic Kingdom, guests can meet with Ariel as depicted in the animated story of The Little Mermaid and the My Disney Experience app now allows guests to locate each of them. To find which version of Ariel you’d like to meet, simply go to the map and select “Characters” from the drop-down menu. You will then be presented with either the live-action version or the animated version of the character. Here’s a look.
