The attraction has only fifteen vehicles, but they are made to look like many more through the clever use of mirrors.
The attraction is narrated by a creepy, beady-eyed musical bird for some reason. Nobody we interviewed for the compilation of facts within this expose was able to tell us why (largely because they were too busy looking at is as if we were insane).
The attraction vehicles turn around and slip below the waves, complements of a special effect that, while brilliantly executed, is crammed with far too many tiny little hidden Mickeys for our taste.
As you descend into the sea, Arial can be seen overhead, accompanied by what appears to be a chambered nautilus and carrying a purse to help remind little princesses of their responsibility to accessorize.
Within Ariel’s undersea lair can be seen many of her treasures (forks, ruined books, jugs full of seawater), cleverly scavenged from among the many survivor-less shipwrecks that have drifted down to her domain.
In the “under the sea” room, Sebastian the crab faces a row of electric eels and, with his little baton, conducts electricity.
In the grand showroom, Ariel sings, dances, and sports a hairdo modeled after the shell of the fly-specked cerith.
Why is this fish kissing the front half of an old, barnacle-covered swan statue? We don’t know.
Ursula, the villain in this little tableau, is introduced in a dark, spooky scene in which she is depicted as being larger than the water-covered video globe of the Earth. We don’t understand this either.
Tomorrow, the exciting climax to this thrilling adventure!
