When I saw the Little Mermaid, I just adored Flounder. He was such an adorable fish and had such a great personality. The movie truly was heartwarming and still remains one of Disney’s more popular of the over 50 full-length films the studios have created. When at the Disney parks it’s so wonderful to capture Disney character pictures, especially with Little Mermaid characters. But where do you find them? See our guide below to the meeting spots for those Little Mermaid characters who have emerged from under the sea to meet their fans.

Ariel – the Little Mermaid Herself

So of course the heroine loves her fans. She is quite popular for Disney character pictures and does meet her public on a regular basis.

At Disney World Orlando, she can be found daily in her Grotto just beside her ride. Do use your fast pass to avoid lines and if you have a Memory maker, you can grab photographs with the beloved mermaid. Don’t miss this chance to meet the titular heroine along with the rest of the Little Mermaid characters.

She is also readily available for a meet and greet during the Akershus storybook dining in EPCOT and in Disneyland California at her ride in Fantasyland and Royal Hall.

In the rest of the world Ariel makes appearances at Tokyo Disney in the Mermaid Lagoon, at Disneyland Paris, she appears regularly at the Princess Pavilion and at the Auberge de Cendrillion. At this time Shanghai, Hong Kong and the Cruise Lines don’t see Ariel, but that doesn’t mean that couldn’t change.

Prince Eric

Ariel’s beautiful beau can be found at the Bon Voyage Breakfast at the Trattoria al Forno in Disney’s Boardwalk, at Tokyo Disney in Disneysea, and at Disneyland Paris.

He sadly does not make appearances for Disney character pictures at Disneyland California, Hong Kong, Shanghai, or on the Cruise Line.

Flounder

My favourite little fish sadly does not meet any of his fans for Disney character pictures in the parks. He can be seen in Disney on Ice productions though so do get tickets for that performance when they come to your town!

Sebastian

The lovable lobster that tries to coax Ariel in staying under the sea is not available for meet and greets. He can only be found at the Disney on Ice productions at this time.

King Triton

Ariel’s wonderful father sadly doesn’t meet his fans. For those who would like to meet one of the iconic Little Mermaid characters, don’t despair. He as well has only been seen in Disney on Ice productions. It is unlikely that he will be making any public appearances at the parks for Disney character pictures anytime soon.

Max, Eric’s Dog

Man’s best friend Max has made the odd appearance at the Mermaid lagoon in Tokyo Disney. This is the extent of his meet and greets so if you want to meet him, you will need to head to Japan. He sadly does not appear at Disney World Orlando, Disneyland California, Paris, Hong Kong, Shanghai, or the Cruise Lines.

Ursula

The evil witch that takes Ariel’s voice does not make appearances to meet her public or to take any Disney character pictures. You can see her in performances, in large statue form at the Art of Animation Resort, Disney on Ice, and in various parades.

Disney On ice is one of the only spots to nab Disney character pictures of Ursula from the Little Mermaid.

So that ends the Little Mermaid Disney character pictures opportunities round-up. It is disappointing that the majority of the Little Mermaid characters guests cannot meet, but you never know this could change. I would personally also love to meet Scuttle if he ever comes to the parks. Stay tuned for next few guides on Beauty & the Beast, Aladdin, and the Lion King!
