Ariel is exploring with her friend Flounder. Ariel was always a curious mermaid, swimming away from the reef and exploring sunken ships and caves. She had recently escaped from a shark.
Ariel came across a boat with a very handsome man on it. Unfortunately, a storm hit and was destroyed. She rescued him and became in love.
Her father, King Tridon, shamed her for loving a human. Ariel wanted to be where the people were, so she visited a Sea Witch, Ursula, to give her human legs in exchange for her voice. However she was given a time limit to her legs. She had three days to get true loves kiss, or else she would return to her mermaid state, and she would be hers.
Ariel was doing great! She had almost gotten a kiss if it wasn't for Ursula's pet eels crashing the party. They began to love each other. Ursula was getting worried. This had to be stopped! She made herself into a beautiful young lady and stole him over with Ariel's voice. They were going to get married the next day.
Ariel stops them from getting married and gets her voice back! However, Eric finds out she's a mermaid. To save her from being Ursula's prisoner King Tridon offers himself instead. Ursula accepts and is now the new ruler of the ocean. Ariel and Eric defeat her.
After Ariel and Eric defeated Ursula, King Tridon made her a human fully so she could be with him. They got married and lived happily ever after, the end.
