After the Journey of The Little Mermaid attraction, you can visit Ariel’s Grotto for a personal audience with your favorite mermaid.  Here’s your intrepid videographer having a meet and greet with the headstrong redhead.  Let’s hope Prince Eric doesn’t get upset.

About John Saccheri

John Saccheri has been rooted in the Disney culture from childhood. John only had the opportunity to visit Walt Disney World once, at the age of 5. After returning home, he never stopped talking about it, yearning to return. His parents were worried about this “obsession,” but John began working at the age of 12 with a focus on saving up for the next Disney trip. He was able to visit Disney World at least once a year from 14 years old onward. Today, a successful entrepreneur, John was able to move from his hometown of Long Island, New York, to Central Florida to be close to the Mouse. Going to the parks still seems like a fantasy to him!
