Under the Sea (pics)

Under the Sea--Journey of the Little Mermaid was open this weekend as a "dress rehearsal" before its real opening next month. 

The ride itself is identical to the DCA version by all accounts, but the line is way more interesting and immersive. There's an interactive game here every so often; you point at the on-screen blue crab if he has dragged an item onscreen that doesn't match the junk around it, and sensors in the ceiling capture your movement. Fun, quick, engaging.

The ride is a real winner and a definite boon for the Magic Kingdom!
