The classic Disney musical about a mermaid searching for her place in the world and finding true love. Ariel, the Little Mermaid, is captivated by the world above the sea. Her father, King Triton, has forbidden any contact with anyone on dry land. Life changes when she falls in love with Prince Eric, a human! She makes a deal with Ursula, an enemy of her father from long ago: Ariel’s wish to be a human is granted but has only three days to get true love’s kiss from her Prince if she is to remain a human.
