Today the official Disney Parks Blog announced that Ariel's Grotto, the popular meet and greet area for everyone's favorite mermaid princess will be closing April 12 to make way for the upcoming expansion of Fantasyland.
Disney says Ariel will continue to appear in Spectromagic (until the Main Street Electrical Parade returns this summer), the Voyage of the Little Mermaid and the Celebrate a Dream Come True Parade.
Ariel will have an all-new meet and greet location and a new dark ride when the Fantasyland expansion is complete in 2013.
