2020 has definitely been a year that no one expected. We at Inside the Magic hope everyone has remained healthy and safe during this unprecedented time. Because we know this year has been difficult on many, we wanted to bring a smile to everyone’s face.

As many of you know, Disney animatronics tend to have some technical difficulties. In fact, just within the last few weeks Inside the Magic has reported the Jose animatronic fell over at the Gran Fiesta Tour at EPCOT, the Avatar animatronic, Big Toe, was removed from Na’vi River Journey in Animal Kingdom, and one of the pirate animatronics reportedly fell over just yesterday at Pirates of the Caribbean at Magic Kingdom.

But, in this throwback video posted by Instagram user @days_gone_disney, we are remembering the time King Triton glitched as riders rode past the end scene of Under the Sea – Journey of The Little Mermaid.

The funny part is the video was posted along with the caption “King Triton reacting to 2020.” Check it out:


More On Under the Sea – Journey of The Little Mermaid

This attraction is located at both Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort and Disney California Adventure in Disneyland Resort.  If you’ve never had the chance to ride the attraction at either Disney World or Disneyland, the Disney World website describes this attraction as:

Revisit the classic “tail” of how one lucky little mermaid found true love… and legs.

Your underwater adventure takes you below the waves on a tour of Ariel’s gadget-filled grotto. Immersive special effects and hand-drawn animation sequences recreate each unforgettable scene. Watch Sebastian the crab conduct every singing, dancing fish in the sea. Skulk past a sinister eel-infested lair, and then cheer as Prince Eric kisses the girl.

Spot Ariel’s friends Flounder and Scuttle, her father King Triton—and Ursula the sea witch, who looms 7.5 feet tall and 12 feet wide!

Emerge from the ocean’s depths in time to celebrate Ariel’s happily ever after in a spectacular fairytale finale.
