Just a few pictures of Ariel things around Disneyland...

Ariel painting for sale...

...and an Ariel pot

The Ariel photomosaic...

...and a huge closeup so you can see the individual photos

The Ariel store window display.  I don't think it looks much like her, but it's historical -- the same one they had in 1989

that photo mosiac is fin-flippin' incredible! a LOT of work went into that....

Disney hired the guy who invented photomosiacs to make the ones they have in Disneyland now, and he uses a computer program that does all the work. But he did spend years and years writing and refining the computer program, so I guess a lot of work went into it after all...

I was there in 1990 when they had the 5 window displays from TLM in the Emporium's windows. It's my most vidid, and favorite Disneyland memory (and I was only 4-5 years old.) In January 04 they had the "Kiss the Girl" panel from the original set as well. I took a picture, but my flash kinda ruined it.

Thanks for sharing!

I remember that like you wouldn't believe. I was about 6 when the originals were there and last year when they put back the Kiss the Girl one...I entered Disneyland, as usual with some friends, and from the trainstation I saw something at the Emporium and RAN across the streets of Mainstreet to the window. I knew it was her from that far <33 Glad someone else has fond memories of it.

ahh Yeah I was there in 2002 and they had the Kiss the Girl one and I was running around freaking out like "that was here when I was a kid!!" jumping up and down trying to take pictures. My friends looked at me and just nodded. They expected as much. We were in my version of heaven after all lol ;)

AND CUUUTE! I remember that display piece!!! XD Is the other one with her and Eric in the lagoon still there!? That one's just as old isn't it?

From what some other posters are saying, the one of Ariel & Eric in the lagoon was made in 1990, after the movie was a big hit. The one in my picture is from 1989, and was made to promote the movie, so it's just a little bit older.

Ariel doesn't have a window by herself right now -- the Emporium windows are all in 50th anniversary mode, and many old display pieces are up. Ariel shares her window with Aladdin and Beauty & The Beast. The Kiss the Girl display is not up (I think it was still up last year).

Wow. I really love the painting! Its so beautiful.
That photo mosaic is quite awesome.

My photograph doesn't do the painting justice. It's a real painting (not a print) apparently painted to sell at DCA. A lot of paintings (of different Disney characters) by the same artist were on display.

Great pics!!! It doesn't look much like her, but the hair is really beautiful. Flounder looks different too. His eyes don't look like they are looking at the same thing.

Those are some awesome pictures!!!!

I think Flounder took the bad acid...

I saw the same statue at Walt Disney World at Disney MGM Studios at Voyage of the Little Mermaid in 1992. That was when the store was Under The Sea. It is now called In Character. I don't know if the statue is still there, though.
