30 years ago Ariel splashed her way into our hearts, and now we can celebrate with a Dinglehopper Shrimp Cocktail at Coral Reef!

For a limited-time Coral Reef will have a commemorative menu to celebrate The Little Mermaid. In addition to the Dinglehopper Shrimp Cocktail, look for Chef Louis’ Lobster Seafood Boil and King Triton’s Key Lime Tart. Plus, you can take the commemorative menu home with you (while supplies last). The Little Mermaid menu will be available starting October 19, advanced dining reservations are recommended.

Offerings will be updated seasonally and include gluten-friendly and plant-based flavors.
