Celebrate a Disney Summer from the Sea to the Stars
What better way to herald the arrival of the summer travel season than with the debut of two much-anticipated ride experiences at the Disneyland Resort. In a Disney double whammy, both The Little Mermaid — Ariel’s Undersea Adventure and Star Tours — The Adventures Continue debuted to enthusiastic guests on June 3.
Inspired by the Disney film The Little Mermaid, Ariel’s Undersea Adventure combines cutting-edge special effects with “good, old-fashioned theatrical storytelling” to immerse visitors in the movie’s plot, music and characters. After boarding clamshell-shaped cars, visitors dive below the waves to meet Ariel’s friends Flounder and Sebastian, travel through the evil Ursula’s lair, and descend into Ariel’s Grotto, where an audio-animatronic Ariel serenades guests with the song Part of Your World. Ariel’s Undersea Adventure is located in the Paradise Pier area of Disney California Adventure Park.
Grounded for nearly a year of reimagining, Star Tours is once again flying high in Disneyland Park’s Tomorrowland. The Star Tours travel company has opened new interstellar routes in the Star Wars galaxy. Now, not only do guests zip to other intergalactic destinations, they do so in thrilling 3-D! Star Wars creator George Lucas worked with Disney to create a new storyline, which includes a trip through the skies of Coruscant aboard a Starspeeder 1000 and a high-speed pod race through the desert canyons of Tatooine, Luke Skywalker’s home planet. And frequent fliers will find something new every time they ride: Star Tours — The Adventures Continue features 50 different story variations.
