Journey of the Little Mermaid – Behind the Scenes
One of the newest rides coming to the Magic Kingdom Fantasyland expansion at Walt Disney World is Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid. The Little Mermaid is one of my favorite Disney movies and Ariel is one of my favorite Disney princesses, so I am very excited for this ride to open. Disney has just recently released a behind-the-scenes video of work being done for the new ride. This video gives us a sneak peek inside the Scenic Shop at Disney’s Hollywood Studios to see the giant mural being painted for the new ride’s load/unload area. the load/unload area is the section of the ride where you get on and off the ride vehicles.
I think the artwork looks amazing and I can’t wait to see it in person. The Scenic shop we see in this video, and where they are painting the mural, is in the back of Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park. If you have ever been on The Backlot Tour at Hollywood Studios, you actually pass this building and can see in through giant windows that you pass by. Next time you visit Walt Disney World, hop on the ride and see if you can see the mural or other Disney World art displays for yourself. You never know what Disney magic you might see being made while on the ride, maybe you’ll see designs for new Disney rides!
