Voyage of the Little Mermaid in Disney's Hollywood Studios

The Little Mermaid – A Musical Adventure Coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Fall 2024

Disney has announced an all-new show for Hollywood Studios. The Little Mermaid — A Musical Adventure is coming to the Animation Courtyard Theater, the previous home of the Voyage of the Little Mermaid. The theater has sat silent for the past four years.

Disney Live Entertainment is working on the story now. Construction has already begun inside the theater.

As part of our continued investment in the Parks experience, Disney Live Entertainment has been dreaming up innovative ways to bring new life to the beloved story of Ariel’s journey to be part of the human world. When it opens, the show will feature stunning new set pieces, cutting-edge effects, and a bold new design that captures Ariel’s imagination and emotions through her unique view of the world around her.

With the recent release of live-action The Little Mermaid, it makes sense that Disney would want to bring Ariel and her friends back to the parks. Reaction to this news on social media has been mixed at best, but Twitter/X users aren’t Disney’s target demographic. Kids are going to love this show.
