Disney Celebrates Ariel Replacement With Mermaid-Themed Bonuses For Guests

Now that the Little Mermaid live-action film has officially made its debut in theaters and Disney Parks have already started featuring Halle Bailey lookalikes in their Character Meet and Greets (instead of the traditional version of the Disney princess), Disney eateries have immediately begun offering some special mermaid bonuses!

According to the Disney Parks Blog, limited-time exclusive mermaid-themed desserts or beverages are now being offered in Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort, and Disney Springs!

The Disney Parks Blog shared some previews of these offerings, and it’s clear from the images that, as usual, Disney has not skimped on the effort in terms of details.

Disneyland Delights

Just take a look at the purple clamshell macaron being served in Disneyland, shown above with an opalescent pearl, if you don’t believe us! This particular dessert is called the “Purple Pineapple Shell Macaron”; it contains “blue pineapple buttercream and a chocolate pearl”, and can only be found in the Edelweiss Snacks establishment until May 29.

Disneyland Guests will also want to rush to enjoy the “Mermaid Strawberry Cake” that can be found at the Cappuccino Cart, if they’re in the mood for a snack that matches Ariel’s red hair instead of a purple dessert that matches the Disney princess’s bikini top or seashell bra!

In Walt Disney World Resort (a Disney Resort that Ariel herself, i.e Halle Bailey, recently visited), Disney Guests are being treated to more liquidy desserts or snacks!

Smoothies Galore

A unique refreshing beverage called “Bubbles at Sea” is being served in many establishments within the Disney Parks, starting this weekend. Bubbles at Sea is a concoction containing “Gold Peak sweet green tea, lemon juice, pineapple and guava topped with boba pearls, and a splash of shimmer.”

In the Magic Kingdom (specifically at The Friar’s Nook), Disney World Guests can enjoy an Ursula-inspired cookies and cream milkshake called “Divinely Diabolical” — and for an entirely different flavor profile at Storybook Treats, a strawberry DOLE Whip called “Part of Your World” features the iconic DOLE Whip textures mixed with “Purple Cheesecake soft serve”!

The last creamy beverage being offered for Little Mermaid fans is found within Hollywood Studios, and has been dubbed “The Little Mermaid Donut Milk Shake”.

This “mango-guava-ginger milkshake topped with whipped cream and a pineapple-mango seashell donut” can be enjoyed at the beloved Hollywood Scoops!

The Ganachery’s Contribution

A Disney vacation focusing on limited-edition desserts also wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Disney Springs location called The Ganachery!

This time, the Ganachery specialty is the “Little Mermaid Sea Salt,” which is a creatively-designed “caramel sea salt pop with ocean fondant decor,” shown above!

Journalist Scott Gustin also shared the news about Disney’s limited-time Little Mermaid offerings in the Tweet shown below.

If these Little Mermaid and marine-themed desserts or on-the-go snacks look appealing to you, then you’ll want to get to Disney World, Disney Springs, or Disneyland as quickly as you can this weekend!

With limited supplies and a small window of opportunity, Disney Guests might not have much time to spare when it comes to trying all of these adorable mermaid snacks!

Are you excited to see the new version of Ariel the little mermaid onscreen at your local movie theater and in person at the Disney Parks?
