Animation Courtyard Theater Construction Walls Near Former Voyage of the Little Mermaid Theater

Two children stand near a blue and white building facade under a covered walkway near the former Voyage of the Little Mermaid theater. A closed door and construction barriers are visible. Cloudy skies are in the background.

The walls are between the shuttered outdoor shopping area and Studio Store. A new “The Little Mermaid” stage show called “The Little Mermaid – A Musical Adventure” is set to open in the space this year. “Voyage of the Little Mermaid” never reopened following Disney’s COVID-19-related closures.

A section of the building is under construction, with two doors labeled "1" and "2" on a white and blue temporary wall. Movie posters are displayed above.

The construction walls stretch between dark blue columns in the courtyard. These walls are the first signs of construction for the new show. When it was announced, Disney stated the theater would be refreshed.

Sign on a wall featuring the text: "DIFFICULT TO SEE; ALWAYS IN MOTION IS THE FUTURE," with a small emblem and PPG Paints logo.

The walls are decorated with PPG Paints-branded signs featuring character quotes. This one has Yoda’s silhouette and reads, “Difficult to see; always in motion is the future.”

A sign with a black and white color scheme features the phrase "FORTUNE AND GLORY, KID. FORTUNE AND GLORY." The sign also includes a small hat icon and the PPG Paints logo at the bottom.

The other sign features Indiana Jones’ hat and the quote, “Fortune and glory, kid. Fortune and glory.”

“The Little Mermaid – A Musical Adventure” will include all the songs from “Voyage of the Little Mermaid,” as well as “Kiss The Girl” and “Daughters of Triton.” It will use new puppets, including in an updated blacklight sequence. It will also have characters like King Triton and Ursula appear via digital imagery and motion capture.
