Ariel and I in her new grotto


I met Ariel at Magic Kingdom on 10-18-2012/03:43 PM using @kennypirate’s app. Download http://tinyurl.com/9vu9db2 What a sweet mermaid. And I ran into two character attendant friends too!

Ariel returns to fins and Gaston moves in.

Ariel has moved into her new Grotto today (officially soft opening) and Gaston began meeting guests in New Fantasyland as well.  The new Little Mermaid ride is open as well as Gaston’s Tavern.  The only portion of New Fantasyland that isn’t open, but is complete is Be Our Guest restaurant.  It will be quite a while before the Seven Dwarves Mine Train opens and the new Princess Hall will not open until 2013.

With Ariel relocating and Gaston beginning to meet day guests, Eric is no longer meeting guests at Walt Disney World.
