According to Gustin, Disney has confirmed that the new meet and greet will officially open on May 26, 2023 — the opening date of the film — in Disney World and Disneyland.

In Hollywood Studios, you’ll be able to meet the live-action Ariel in Walt Disney Presents. It appears this will be located in the area that was previously being used for a Sulley meet and greet.
