    Is Ariel's Grotto Closed?

    So is any one at the parks? I'd like to know if Ariel's Grotto is indeed closed...

    I will be at the parks tomorrow, and plan to check out the amount of refurb walls that are up.

    But yesterday at around 5:30 PM was the last day for the Ariel's Meet and Greet. Many managers and current and former Ariel's (out of costume) came out for the last hour of the meet and greet before she spun around for the last time.

    I really liked it back there. It was quite and an escape from crowds. Even when Ariel was out it wasn't very crowded. Yet another peaceful spot sacrificed to the almighty need to market the latest fad.

    Are they going to re-theme the whole area and take out the statues? or just up where she sits?

    I'm not totally certain, but I think the whole area, including the Triton statue and pond all the way up to where she sits. That's been my understanding from Al's updates.

    Her meet and greet is moving to DCA, probably somewhere near where her new ride will be.
