For as long as life has existed on this earth, the wonder of the oceans and the creatures that live beneath its surface have always inspired wonder and awe across humankind. But what if we weren’t alone in our visions of wonder, what if those we dream about also spent their lives dreaming of having a taste, of being a part of our world.
In late 2012 after having ventured through an amazingly enchanted fantasy forest, we arrive at the very sea shore where Prince Eric’s Castle resides. Glistening in the sunset we peer ever closer upon its golden and bronze turrets as the tide pulls away revealing a whole world below the structure of the dazzling castle walls.
Curious as ever we walk further and further under the castle until we are swept away in our very own sea shell. Under the sea we journey, for a magical voyage that will fill our hearts and spirits with treasures untold.
As we dive deep beneath the surface we encounter Ariel, a mermaid with the most captivating voice and stunning red hair. But what captures us to her tale is her imagination, one that takes her to a whole new place beyond the world she has known.
Soon we are surrounded by her story and her friends Sebastian and Flounder as they join countless sea creatures for a dance to the rhythms of the ocean and a song to the sway of life. Sadly, the joy is about to be over as Ariel struggles in her adventure and befriends the most evil of creatures the sea has ever known, Ursula. Promising Ariel almost everything she could ever want, Ursula casts a dark spell that could turn everything to darkness. But this is a fairytale after all and love shall conquer the day.
It is a happy and magical ending in a dreamy adventure that awaits you in New Fantasyland.
