Most things have reopened at Walt Disney World after the 2020 shutdown. One giant piece of the entertainment puzzle has been missing, and that’s Voyage of the Little Mermaid at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. There have been plenty of rumors, especially when the sign was taken down a while back. Then suddenly, the sign returned with a fresh coat of paint! Thanks to Disney Parks Blog, we now know that Ariel and the gang will return to Disney’s Hollywood Studios next fall, in a brand new show called The Little Mermaid – A Musical Adventure. Here are the early details.

How many wonders can one cavern hold? What’s a fire and why does it burn? When will a stage show return to the Animation Courtyard theater at Disney’s Hollywood Studios? All valid questions – one of which I can’t wait to dive into!

“The Little Mermaid – A Musical Adventure,” a fully reimagined theatrical production inspired by the Walt Disney Animation Studios classic “The Little Mermaid,” will debut in the newly refreshed Animation Courtyard theater in fall 2024.

As part of our continued investment in the Parks experience, Disney Live Entertainment has been dreaming up innovative ways to bring new life to the beloved story of Ariel’s journey to be part of the human world. When it opens, 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.

“The Little Mermaid – A Musical Adventure” will have guests flipping their fins to musical numbers inspired by the film including “Part of Your World,” “Poor Unfortunate Souls,” and more. Check out this beautiful concept artwork of the show’s “Kiss the Girl” scene – an all-new addition that captures the magic of this fresh production.

With construction inside the theater well underway, we can’t wait to share more in the coming months as the show comes together. Be sure to swim back to the Disney Parks Blog for updates.
