Oceanic Friends, Disney Royalty, Princes & Princesses

Ariel is the mermaid princess who longs for a different life, on the shore with humans. Everything about the human world fascinates Ariel, from dinglehoppers to whatsits! But the thing Ariel wants the most is to be noticed by the dashing young Danish Prince Eric. Ariel makes a makes a deal with the sea witch Ursula, and is given the gift of legs - at the price of loosing her voice. Ariel and Eric fall in love, and ultimately it is that love that, despite his objections, encourages King Triton to defend his daughter and defeat the wicked Ursula. Ariel and Eric live happily on land now with their daughter Melody, but Ariel checks back from time to time on her friends and family under the sea.
