Ariel and Prince Eric Disney Couple Facts

My favorite Disney couple is Ariel and Prince Eric. It only makes sense since my favorite Disney movie of all time (ever since I was a little girl) is The Little Mermaid. I have always loved Ariel and meeting her at Disney World was something I looked forward to for years. I've had a fascination with mermaids ever since watching The Little Mermaid. Something about a mermaid turning into a princess and meeting Prince Eric just seem so magical. 

My children could not wait to meet Ariel at the Magic Kingdom at the new Ariel meet n greet in Fantasyland. This was the highlight of my children's day. Well, probably week!

Scenes from The Little Mermaid are depicted in the Journey of the Little Mermaid ride

Did you know Prince Eric is the only Disney Prince who does not sing during the movie?


  1. Hayden: The Little Mermaid was my favorite when I was growing up as well! This is such a great Disney couple (though Ariel's age makes this all a little scandalous, doesn't it?)!

  2. Great post Hayden! I had no idea about Mickey, Donald, and Goofy! That was hard to spot. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I love fun trivia like that! I had no idea Greg Brady did Eric's voice! All the more reason to like Prince Eric!! :)

  4. Now I'm going to have to watch for Mickey, Donald & Goofy next time!! And I never thought about the fact that Eric doesn't sing. Great post Hayden!

  5. I had no idea Greg Brady was the voice of Eric! How funny! The Little Mermaid is one of my favorite Disney movies, and I could sing the music from it all day long!

  6. Great trivia - I had no idea movie- Greg Brady was the prince!! I wanted to go into the meet and greet, but my 4 year old decided to be afraid of Princesses (not the full characters, just the face characters.. go figure), so we skipped it!

  7. Great trivia! I had no idea about the hidden Mickey, Donald and Goofy! Thanks for sharing!! :)

  8. We love The Little Mermaid here! In fact, my 20-year-old daughter got the Blu-Ray edition for Christmas this year! :) I love that you never outgrow Disney!

  9. This is one of my favorite movies. It came out when I was just starting high school and I remember seeing it over and over again.

  10. Great choice! I love Ariel's determination to live life on her own terms!
