If someone someone where to ask me my very favorite Disney film, I’m not sure I could name just one. But near the top of my list would definitely be The Little Mermaid. Between the sweet story and the amazing songs, it is a true Disney classic. It was one of the last animated movies I saw as a kid before I decided I had become too old for them. (Although as an adult I’ve realized you never become too old.) I’ve been known to get some of the songs even stuck in my head, Kiss the Girl and Part of Your World being two favorites of mine. I’m thrilled to be asked to share a giveaway with you and receive my own Diamond Edition copy to add to our Disney collection.
Now this heartwarming story is going to be available on Blu-Ray for the first time ever starting October 1st!
“The Little Mermaid” splashes its way into homes for the first time ever on Blu-ray™ for a limited time only.

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 (voiced by Kenneth Mars)beloved kingdom from the sneaky sea witch Ursula (voiced by Pat Carroll).
And have you ever wondered about the beautiful voice behind Ariel? It is none other than Jodi Benson, also known for her role as Barbie in the Toy Story series. Doesn’t she just look like a real-life, grown up version of Ariel? An interesting fact, she also voiced Vanessa, Ursula’s alter-ego in human form.
