Daily Photo Tour - Ariel's Undersea Adventure

During our last visit to the park, we made a point to stop and see the progress of the latest addition to Disney California Adventure, The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel's Undersea Adventure. We had recently seen some picture updates of the construction and the changes made over the past few weeks are astonishing. We were really in for a pleasant surprise when we saw it in person, where it far surpassed our expectations. Its grandeur almost dwarfs Mickey's Fun Wheel if you stare up at Triton triumphantly hoisting his trident for too long. The exterior is stunning in its thoughtful, intricate detail which incorporates the Little Mermaid seamlessly with Paradise Pier. If that is any indication of what Ursula and Ariel will have in store for us, then it's sure to be an exciting experience under the sea!

do you guys mind posting a link to an alternate picture with a watermark for all your pics from now on? i post your pictures on tumblr, but when people reblog it they tend to erase my text with credit to you. i would like your pictures to get the credit they deserve.

Steve, thank you for respecting our work and the time and effort we put into every photo by wanting to insure we're given credit. It has come to our attention that this has been happening quite a bit. We are considering our options and the best way to prevent this. We're not particularly fond of watermarks. We feel they detract from the photo, but they do the job. We're in the process of making a decision on this and will let you know what we decide. Thank you for sharing our work and for crediting us, we appreciate it very much!

Hi Steve,
We've just set up a tumblr for our page. We're in the process of posting all of the photos from our blog to our tumblr with an embedded link and 2 additional links included underneath the photo. It seems to be working really well so far. All the reblogs are linking back to us. I wanted to let you know so you could reblog from our tumblr found here if you'd like and maybe that will help prevent this problem.
