Description And Comments
As part of the most recent Fantasyland Expansion, Ariel has an elaborate new home next to the Under the Sea - Journey of the Little Mermaid dark ride. The queue isn’t as detailed as other character-greeting venues in the park.
- This attraction offers FastPass+.
- Open for Morning Extra Magic Hour.
- Open for Evening Extra Magic Hours.
The Grotto may close an hour before the rest of the park. The greeting area is set up almost as if to encourage guests to linger with Ariel, which keeps the line long. The queue isn’t air-conditioned, which is surprising for a venue that’s supposed to store fish.
This chart shows you roughly how long you'll wait for Meet Ariel at Her Grotto when you visit on a day with a given Magic Kingdom Crowd Level. The blue bars represent the average "peak" wait time (that is, how long the line will at its busiest). The bottom and top black lines represent the range of peak wait times to expect (for you fellow nerds out there: it's the 5th percentile and 95th percentile of peak wait times). Please note that these are estimates, and for a better forecast for your travel dates, see Meet Ariel at Her Grotto Wait Times.
