This is somewhat off topic, but if you're interested, Prince Eric plays unusually heavily in the new Disney On Ice production titled "Princess Wishes." He has quite a bit of on ice time WITHOUT Ariel during the Little Mermaid segment of the show.
ORDDU: Ummmm.....now you're all singing MY song. I just LOVE a gorgeous prince out running around. Of course my all time Favorite is a Prince of the African Jungles--Tarzan!! Give me my man in his loin cloth and I'll be sure to give him--
ORGOCH: --Not HERE ya won't go givin' him nothin', ya dirty tramp!! Now, git the @#$% outta here 'n leave these nice innocent ducklin's alone!
ORDDU: And just what makes you think they're so innocent, dear?
I know that for a fact that hes over at Tokyo Disney Sea's Mermaid Lagoon ,one of my friends that when she went to Tokyo last year she said that they met him and even his dog Max, they also have a Louie character too! So it seems that hes more in Tokyo than anywhere else. Although i do agree that they should have Prince Eric @ Ariels Grotto in DCA!
I know I've been trying to meet Eric to. The last time I ask a CM she didn't even know who he was? He is the only Prince that I am missing to get all the Prince.
I think Disney is to blame for this ever since they started to brand characters. Once they started to brand some of their characters, such as the princesses, Winnie the Pooh, and Tinkerbelle, a lot of other characters have gotten pushed to the side and are eventually forgotten about. Even Mickey Mouse and the Fab 5 get less of a push than the Princesses do. I think Prince Eric would become popular again if Disney started to give his character another push.
I also think that if the Little Mermaid ride was actually built, his character would be demanded once again.
Good morning, son
In twenty years from now
Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
And I can tell you 'bout today
And how I picked you up and everything changed
It was pain
Sunny days and rain
I knew you'd feel the same things...
The reason why I have the characters in my character Hunt that are in parades and in Fantastmic is I know one of these days they will show up for meet and greet. Like for Exsmaple [ms]. Clarabelle Cow=The first time I ever saw her was in Fantasmic and now she is doing meet and greets over at Toon Town or when it's Christmas over at Thunder Range. Fairy Godmother. The first time seen her was in Parade of Dreams then all of a sudden I see her walking by the castle with Cinderella. So that's why I put them on my list and I just put a new one on there and that is Meet the Robinson characters.
