Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid is a dark ride attraction based on the film The Little Mermaid, currently under construction in Fantasyland at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom.


A dark ride featuring The Little Mermaid was supposed to open at Disneyland Paris and Magic Kingdom parks in the early to mid 90's. Early plans for Hong Kong Disneyland also included this ride. The ride was scrapped, but a visual idea was included on the Platinum Edition DVD of The Little Mermaid in 2006.

A different version opened on June 3, 2011 at Disney's California Adventure. In September 2009, Disney officials announced that Mickey's Toontown Fair at the Magic Kingdom would be demolished, leaving Goofy's Barnstormer to be rethemed to The Great Goofini. This will give more room to Fantasyland, which will be filled with this ride, meet-and-greets with the Disney Princesses, and a larger Dumbo area.
