    Sneak Peak - New Little Mermaid Ride @ DCA

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=http:...?v=HWpsSHT7lRk

    The Little Mermaid Under the Sea

    Whoops! Sorry folks. This ride vid was mislabeled on YouTube. This is the same mock-up Little Mermaid ride that was on the Special Edition Little Mermaid DVD.

    If you haven't seen the original mocj-up (or desire to see it again), by all means take a look-see.

    Watch your step and "keep your arms and legs inside the sea shell." Have fun and enjoy...

    I looks just like the one on the Little Mermiad DVD to me.

    The DVD mock-up remains what the ride is based on. But, go back and take a look at that version.

    I agree with the others. This is the exact same one that's on the DVD. Those are not omnimover cars- they have two rows of seats, plus they're non continuous (not an endless stream of clamshells). Plus, the Under the Sea scene in this video isn't nearly as big as Al has recently reported it will be (almost as big, if not as big, as the Haunted Mansion graveyard scene).

    Sorry to burst your bubble, although, I'm not counting out the possibility of them using this as inspiration for the 'real deal'.

    you are mistaken, this is from the little mermaid dvd, the ride is a mock up of paris' never built attraction.

    I did. It is exactly the same video. I ran it simultaneously from the DVD on my PC and the video you presented. Sorry, but you just found the DVD video on YouTube. We are going to have to wait to see the Little Mermaid ride in a few years when it opens.

    I though the Little Mermaid ride was going to be longer than the HM?

    Well, although I was excited for a second, that was still a fun ride. Hehe.

    I'm so excited for the ride though.

    It seems like these ride vehicles more closely resemble those from Peter Pan, with the over-head guide track.

    Either way, I don't listen to the rumors or "Official News" until I see it at California Adventure. This ride would have been fun, but it's dead. Ours will hopefully be longer and more elaborate.
