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

by | Jun 10, 2024 | Disney's Hollywood Studios, Walt Disney World

A new The Little Mermaid musical show will be replacing Voyage of the Little Mermaid at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in 2024.

In 1992, Voyage of the Little Mermaid debuted at what was then known as Disney-MGM Studios. Voyage of the Little Mermaid was an abridged version of the 1989 tale, which used a mix of live actors and puppets. However, after Disney World went through a months-long closure in 2020, the show didn’t reopen with the parks. Consequently, we’ve waited for news of what would happen with the show. That is, until now. Disney has announced plans for a new show that will debut in Fall 2024.

The Little Mermaid – A Musical Adventure will be a completely reimagined theatrical production set to debut at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The Disney Live Entertainment team has been working hard to bring Ariel’s story to life in a way that fans will love. When it premieres, it will be shown in the previous theater for Voyage of the Little Mermaid in Animation Courtyard.

The musical is inspired by the story of The Little Mermaid, as told in the 1989 Disney classic. The show will feature musical numbers including “Part of Your World,” “Poor Unfortunate Souls,” and “Kiss the Girl.” And the show will feature a new addition that wasn’t part of the previous Voyage of the Little Mermaid!

We don’t know too much about the specifics of the show just yet, but in June 2024, Disney revealed that The Little Mermaid – A Musical Adventure will feature all of the same songs as the prior iteration of the show, plus “Daughters of Triton.” The production will also feature all-new puppets and visuals, which will make for an entirely new experience for audiences.

While Disney has not provided an official opening date, we can’t wait to experience the new show when it debuts in the Fall of 2024.
