The infamous evil sea witch, Ursula, has taken her place inside The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure attraction opening June 3 at Disney California Adventure park. When you’re on the attraction, you can’t miss her. She’s 7 ½ feet tall and 12 feet wide! Of course, the Disney Parks Blog was there to capture this exciting day! Come with us behind-the-scenes as we show you Ursula being installed, and meet some members of the amazing team of Walt Disney Imagineers who brought Ursula to “life.”

Ruben A. Aquino is a Disney animator. During pruduction of The Lion King (1994), Ruben and the animation crew all went to Africa to study the movements of a lion for his character of Adult Simba. After he's finished production on Mulan in 1998, he won an Annie Award for Outstanding Individual Achievement for Character Animation for the characters Shang and Fa Li.
