Maybe she should’ve kept her fins!

While visiting Walt Disney World as well as Disneyland Guests are faced with a seemingly endless amount of entertainment options. With classic rides like Space Mountain, Splash Mountain and, “it’s a small world”, Disney Guests have a lot to choose from.

Another aspect of entertainment comes from the selection of shows Disney World offers like Hollywood Studios‘ Fantasmic! and For the First Time in Forever – Frozen Sing-Along Celebration. However, even Disney World shows are not free of mistakes and mishaps from time to time, as seen with this video below at the Disney Park.

In an older recording of the Voyage of The Little Mermaid show at Disney’s Hollywood Studios (the show is currently closed) by Disney Stuff Back Up (@disney_stuffbackup) on TikTok, Ariel can be seen facing a major wardrobe malfunction as her fins appear to get stuck, making her transformation a little less grand for Guests watching.

Ever since the COVID-19 Pandemic hit most of Walt Disney World and Disneyland’s live entertainment has been put on hold, with some shows returning one by one. Voyage of The Little Mermaid opened in 1992 but has been closed since 2020 with no word on when or if the show will reopen at all. Find more on Voyage of The Little Mermaid here:

A Mermaid Fairy Tail

Enter a world where the ocean floor is full of fish and Ariel longs to stroll and dance with humans. Sing along with colorful puppets, spirited live performers, wondrous special effects and enchanting film clips.

Sebastian the crab and his hot crustacean band make a splash with “Under the Sea.” Ariel yearns to trade her tail for legs in “Part of Your World.” 

When Ursula the Sea Witch grants her wish, Ariel gets more than she bargained for—before discovering her own happily-ever-after at the grand fin-ale.
