Animation Courtyard is a small area holding two shows geared for children: Voyage of the Little Mermaid and Disney Junior - Live on Stage.
= Cara's Favorite
Journey under the sea at one of Disney’s Hollywood Studios’ most beloved attractions. This tribute to the auburn-haired mermaid Ariel combines puppetry, live actors, animated film, and delightful music with the adorable sidekicks Flounder and Sebastian and the not-so-adorable sea witch Ursula. Favorite songs from the movie, such as “Under the Sea,” “Part of Your World,” and “Poor Unfortunate Souls,” along with great special effects including black lights, lasers, rain showers, bubbles, and lightning make this show quite a hit with children. Besides, how often do you have the opportunity to behold a seemingly live mermaid with a flopping tail?
Cara’s Tip: Don’t skip this wonderful attraction simply because you don’t have small children in tow. If you would like a center seat stand back a bit when the doors open into the theater from the pre-show holding room and allow about half the crowd to enter before you.
