In an artist’s rendering from the upcoming The Little Mermaid – A Musical Adventure show at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Ariel and Prince Eric are seen in the Kiss the Girl scene, sitting in a boat; Sebastian the crab is on the right side and Flounder the fish is on the left side. Frogs and flamingoes sit on either side in the foreground and stars are all around the couple. They are framed by all manner of sea creatures depicted on the proscenium of the stage.

New The Little Mermaid Show to Swim Into Disney’s Hollywood Studios in 2024

By Emily Hewitt

Ariel will soon be part of Disney’s Hollywood Studios’ world…

The Little Mermaid – A Musical Adventure, a fully reimagined theatrical production inspired by the Walt Disney Animation Studios classic, will premiere at the Animation Courtyard theater inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort in fall 2024.

The show will feature stunning new set pieces, cutting-edge effects, and a bold new design that captures Ariel’s imagination and emotions through her unique view of the world around her. Musical numbers inspired by the film will include “Part of Your World,” “Poor Unfortunate Souls,” and “Kiss the Girl”—featured in the concept art above.

The Animation Courtyard theater is currently under construction; audiences will flip their fins into the newly refreshed theater next year. Until then, keep your eyes peeled for more info as it becomes available!
