I remember watching The Little Mermaid when it first came out on VHS when I was in elementary school. From her long, flowy red hair to her ability to swim underwater, what’s not to love?
Now that I’m a mom, I spend a lot of time watching Disney movies with my kids. It’s always so cool when my kids like Disney movies I liked growing up!
One of our favorite Disneyland rides is Ariel’s Undersea Adventure. You sit in a little clamshell and take a little journey through iconic scenes from The Little Mermaid.
