Ariel’s Grotto

Please Note: Ariel’s Grotto is closed due to the transition of Paradise Pier into Pixar Pier. The location will be transformed into a new grill offering when Pixar Pier opens in Summer 2018. 

Step into a whimsical wonderland under the sea where your host, Ariel, welcomes you as part of her world! Ariel’s Grotto is a diverse fixed-price restaurant that offers a Princess breakfast & three course Princess character lunch. Have your cameras ready because the Little Mermaid, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, and Cinderella are always full of fun and surprises! During dinner hours the same popular menu is available but you also have the opportunity to book a “World of Color” dining package on applicable nights that includes preferred viewing for the show.
