Voyage of the Little Mermaid is a live show attraction at Disney's Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. Voyage is an abridgment of the 1989 film The Little Mermaid. Along with a mix of live actors and puppets, the show features effects such as light and laser projections on the auditorium walls and light rain over the audience. It replaced the previous attraction, Here Comes The Muppets, in January 7, 1992 in the Animation Courtyard Theater.[2]

Synopsis[edit]

The show starts out with a preshow following artifacts including King Triton's trident. Then guests enter a theater where the show begins. It starts with the Oscar-winning song "Under the Sea", featuring various "black light" puppets, then goes into "Part of Your World", which is followed by Ursula singing "Poor Unfortunate Souls". This song is performed by a gigantic puppet, 12 feet tall and 10 feet wide. After Ursula steals Ariel's voice, a montage of the film leading up to the demise of the sea witch is shown. It then goes to the scene where King Triton lets Ariel go with Prince Eric. At the end of the show, a curtain of falling water covers the stage. Voyage of the Little Mermaid is located in the Animation Courtyard section.
