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.

Prince Eric to be retired from regular meets

According to sources Prince Eric is set to be retired from regular meets  after meeting guests (soon) on Saturday, September 29.  Ariel will meet guests alone at Adventureland Verandah beginning Sunday, September 30.  She will move to her new Grotto meet area next to her new ride and return to fin form in mid to late October.

Ariel’s new meet and greet concept art

 

 

 
The Disney Parks blog released one new concept art image of Ariel’s new meet and greet in New Fantasyland today.  It is reminiscent of the old Grotto meet that used to be located near Pinocchio’s Village Haus.

Ariel  will return to fin form as I’ve mentioned previously a number of times here on the blog.  The meet will take place on the seaside cliffs of Prince Eric’s Castle.

The blog states that the character greeting will begin with the public previews on November 19th, but one might expect soft openings before this public preview.
