At Disney World, Guests have so many options when it comes to entertainment. From live shows to the ever-expanding list of rides and attractions, Guests will be sure to find something magical.

However, sometimes things can go wrong and the overall experience of the ride or attraction can be diminished. From stops to complete evacuations, Guests may be the unlucky (or lucky) ones to see a Disney ride breakdown.

In very rare cases, a feature on the ride will break, resulting in what can either be a funny malfunction or a terrifying one.  We have seen this happen in the past with various rides but one left a Guest scared to even go to sleep.

A video shared on TikTok happened to fall in the latter category. See the video below shared by @thevillageghost:

As you can see, the Ariel animatronic on the Under The Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid attractioin at Magic Kingdom seems to be experiencing some issues with its eyes, resulting in a creepy image for Guests who pass by. Hopefully, this will be resolved soon!

For those who may not have experienced Under The Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid, Disney describes the attraction as follows:

A Song-Filled Shell-abration

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.

What Disney ride creeps you out?
