Halle Bailey Surprises Families at Disneyland with Ariel Makeover & Movie Premiere

The unveiling of Halle Bailey as Ariel in Disney’s upcoming film, “The Little Mermaid,” left audiences spellbound. The trailer not only showcased her remarkable portrayal but also triggered a heartwarming response among children who finally saw themselves represented in an iconic Disney Princess.

Among those who captured the world’s attention with their sheer joy and excitement were McKenzie, Madison, and Carter Lanier, along with Mckenzie and Riley Fleming. After their viral video reactions to the film’s trailer, Disney Parks and The Walt Disney Studios went above and beyond to make their dreams come true. Both families were cordially invited to Disneyland Resort for what they thought would be a thrilling vacation in the parks.

Little did they know, an extraordinary surprise awaited them during their visit to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. While receiving enchanting makeovers, these young ones were taken aback by a personalized video message from none other than Halle Bailey herself! Yet, the surprises didn’t end there. With a touch of Disney magic, Halle appeared around the corner, stepping into their presence. After exchanging hugs and sharing special words of wisdom, Halle extended an incredible invitation to the Lanier and Fleming families: to join her on the illustrious “blue carpet” for the highly anticipated World Premiere of “The Little Mermaid”!

In addition to expanding the legacy and helping to make the experience more inclusive, select Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique locations now offer a brand-new costume selection for both princesses and princes to choose from – all inspired by “The Little Mermaid”!

The Little Mermaid” is the beloved story of Ariel, a beautiful and spirited young mermaid with a thirst for adventure. The youngest of King Triton’s daughters, and the most defiant, Ariel longs to find out more about the world beyond the sea, and while visiting the surface, falls for the dashing Prince Eric. While mermaids are forbidden to interact with humans, Ariel must follow her heart. She makes a deal with the evil sea witch, Ursula, which gives her a chance to experience life on land, but ultimately places her life – and her father’s crown – in jeopardy.

Be sure to see “The Little Mermaid” swimming into theaters on May 26th!
