Voyage of The Little Mermaid is a musical stage production using live action, puppetry (if you look closely, you can see the puppeteers dressed in black as they work their magic on stage), special effects, music and movie clips to tell the tale of the Little Mermaid. The show lasts for around 14 minutes and features Academy award winning songs "Under the Sea", "Part of Your World" and "Poor Unfortunate Souls", the latter of which is sung by a 12' high and 10' wide Ursula puppet. Fastpasses can be bought for this attraction.
The show starts out with a preshow following artifacts such as King Triton's trident. Then you enter a theater where the show begins. It starts with the Oscar-winning song "Under The Sea", featuring various "black light" puppets, then goes into "Part of Your World", which is followed by Ursula singing "Poor Unfortunate Souls". This song is performed by a gigantic puppet, 12 feet tall and 10 feet wide. After Ursula steals Ariel's voice, a montage of the film leading up to the demise of the sea witch is shown. Then it goes to the scene where King Triton lets Ariel go with Prince Eric. At the end of the show, a curtain of falling water covers the stage.
