#Disney Little Mermaid Diamond Edition DVD Review/Giveaway!

The Little Mermaid  Splashes Its Ways Into Homes For The Very First Time In Blu-ray™ Hi-Def  With New Breathtaking Picture and Sound Restoration!

To say that I was excited to hear that the Little Mermaid Diamond Edition DVD was being released from the vault is an understatement. It was one of my favorite movies growing up and  I was so glad to bring this huge Disney hit into my household. Hayley is absolutely obsessed with Ariel- so much so, that she was Ariel three years in a row for Halloween. While we have rented The Little Mermaid many times from the library, we were glad that this Disney classic can now permanently be a fixture in our DVD reperitiore.Little Mermaid DVD review


Ariel (voiced by Jodi Benson), is a free-spirited mermaid, who is off on the adventure of a lifetime with her best friend, the adorable Flounder (voiced by Jason Marin), and the reggae-singing Caribbean crab Sebastian (voiced by Samuel E. Wright) at her side. But it will take all of her courage and determination to make her dreams come true—and save her father’s beloved kingdom from the sneaky sea witch Ursula (voiced by Pat Carroll).

While we have seen this movie countless times, it is absolutely breathtaking to see it in High Definition on our Blu-Ray player. It has the same amazing and classic songs such as Under the Sea/ Kiss the Girl  that I remembered as a children, but it takes it a step forward with the great extras seen on the DVD! The extras include an All-New Music Video at Disney Animation, Disney Intermission, Deleted Character Scenes,  The Real Little Mermaid: Live Action Reference Model, Part of Her World: Jodi Benson’s Voyage To New Fantasyland, Howard’s Lecture , Carly Rae Jepsen music video,  and other Classic DVD Bonus Features.

It was amazing watching The Little Mermaid with my daughter now. To see her stare in delight and smile the whole time, made me so happy! It has the same love story of Ariel and Eric and their fight to find each other, despite wicked Ursula. For some reason though, I am even enjoying this DVD more than when I first saw it years and years ago! I think because my daughter can now truly appreciate the magic of Disney!

    You know, I have never seen this movie. I don’t have children and it came out after I moved away from my nieces and nephews. I’ve heard the Under the Sea song though and think that it’s really peppy

  2. Stephanie Easterling says

    My daughter’s favorite will always be Ariel. She would sing all of the songs when we would be in the car driving.

  3. says

    For my girls it’s Ariel. For my Son, he likes Flounder. I like Scuttle, I love the part where he explains to Ariel what a DingleHopper is.

  4. Keara B. says

    My daughter hasn’t yet seen The Little Mermaid- we only have it on tape and got rid of our VCR! But I’m sure she’d love Ariel.

  5. Susan Johnson says

    Christopher hasn’t seen it yet, which I why I’m entering. I love Sebastian the Crab and his songs!

  6. Ashley C says

    My son hasn’t seen it yet, but he loves fish so I’d bet Flounder would be his favorite


  7. Kim Simpson says

    My son hasn’t seen The Little Mermaid yet but I would love to share it with him. I think he’d love Scuttle because he loves birds. But really, I think he’ll love the whole movie.

  8. Pauline Milner says

    Our Son has always loved Flounder, and so do I. Thanks for the great giveaway opportunity. Keep up the terrific blogging!

  9. Stephanie Matthews says

    My 3-year-old little girl loves Prince Eric’s dog, Max. I don’t really know why…she just thinks he’s so funny! :)

  10. Jane Ritz says

    I would like to see more tablet, nook, laptop giveaway. This is a bit selffish om my part. I’ve been trying to win a Nook preferably for my grandson who can’t see well even with glasses. He’s a good student, but I’m afraid he’s going to start loosing ground. I can’t afford to buy him one or he would have it right now. You do a great job as a blogger.

  11. Linda Szymoniak says

    We’re real dog lovers at our house, and I think the favorite of my three daughters (and even me) is the dog (and I’m blanking on his name).

  12. says
