So y'know Triton's Gardens
at D*sneyland? It's an area in Fantasyland, where Ariel sits at her shell
and has been greeting guests since 1996. Lovely place, ain't it?
Well it's gone. Gutted. RIPPED OUT.This
is how it currently looks. So why the reconstruction? Well Triton's Gardens is being transformed into Pixie Hollow, to make room for Tinkerbell and her fairy friends
, all to promote the new Tinkerbell Movie coming out next month. The D*sney Fairies are their new cash cow, and these characters are expected to rake in at least $4 billion to the D*sney Company in the next year alone. I guess the bottom line is the Fairies are the new Princesses.
So what happened to Ariel? Well they stripped her of her fin, gave her some legs and a dress and stuck her in Princess Fantasy Faire
, much to her dismay. Farewell to the mermaid. Now most of us will only be able to look at her from a distance in the parades.
The sad thing is that yes I am sad to see fish-Ariel go, but even worse, I think I may actually like
this new fairy franchise. *ashamed*
