Welcome to Daring to Dream, my fansite dedicated to Disney's classic animated flick, The Little Mermaid and its spin-offs. I am Annie D, your resident tourguide.


17 August 2014 : Thanks to a submission from Anna, I'm able to add scans from the twelfth and final Marvel TLM comic book so that section is now complete! There's also more additions to the gallery, namely scans from two more movie adaptation picturebooks, from the shiny picturebook Ariel and the Lost Whirlpool, and from one more Disney Princess magazine comic. Currently airing on TV is a South Korean serial based on The Little Mermaid called Surplus Princess, so I've added a page for that. To the Other Mermaids section I've added pages for episodes of Flipper and Dark Angel.
29 June 2014 : Added the lyrics for the Q;indivi cover of "Part of Your World". To the gallery, I've added the "Golden Tell-a-Tale" book to the movie adaptations, the illustrations from "The Shimmering Star Necklace", the scans from "Ariel's Dance Class", "Ariel Helps Out", "The Sunken Ship" and "The Little Mermaid and Spot", plus one more comic from the Disney Princess magazine, "Treasure Hunt". To the Other Mermaids section I've added the mermaids from Baywatch and SAGA: Curse of the Shadow.
7 June 2014 : I've updated the comics page with more info and scans, and added a bunch more new scans to the gallery for the read-along books "Ariel and the Mysterious World Above", "Ariel and the Secret Grotto", "Christmas Under the Sea" and First Readers Book "Ariel's Treasure Hunt". As part of the gallery, I've set up a page for the novel series but that's still a work-in-progress and not yet completed. To the section of other versions of TLM I've put up a page for an episode of Fairy Tale Police Department, and the section of other mermaids there are pages for Grimm, Man from Atlantis and Blackstar.
20 April 2014 : Ariel appeared in another episode of Once Upon a Time, so I've added a synopsis of her appearance plus screencaps. There's a bunch of new additions to the gallery: the Brimar and Special Edition tie-in movie adaptations, a picturebook adapation of Ariel's Beginning, the Part of Their World pop art book, plus Treasures of Old, Ariel's New Friend, A Whale of a Time and Ariel's New Treasure. For the "Other version of TLM" section I've set up pages for Saban's The Adventures of the Little Mermaid and the My Favourite Fairy Tales version.
16 March 2014 : There's a bunch of additions to the gallery: scans from the Read-Along Storybook and Danish Scholastic picturebook, The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea Golden Book, and the short story Shark Surprise. I've updated the series page to include some info on the VHS releases. There are new pages for the Timeless Tales adaptation of The Little Mermaid, plus the other mermaids of Barbie: The Pearl Princess, Sanctuary and Lost Girl.
23 Feb 2014 : More scans! This time from the recent picture-book adaptations of the movie, the short story The Purple Pearl and more colouring pages. There's a new story in the fanfic section, by Jerry533482! For the Other Versions of The Little Mermaid section I've added a page for the 2013 German tv movie Die kleine Meerjungfrau, though I haven't actually watched it yet, though I'm getting on it.
5th Jan 2014: First update of the year! Added the lyrics pages for the songs "Joining Together" from Sofia the First: The Floating Palace, plus "The Real Thing" and Carly Rae Jepsen's "Part of Your World" from the 2013 album The Little Mermaid: Greatest Hits. I've added scans for the stories "Ariel's Baby Beau", "Dreams Under the Sea" and "Sealed with a Kiss" to the gallery, along with excerpts from the Learning Ladder series. I've moved the colouring pages from the miscellaneous section to the gallery, and to that added a couple more general colouring pages and some from the Ariel's Beginning colouring book. For the Other Mermaids section, I've made a page for the black and white film Mr. Peabody and the Mermaid.
1st Dec 2013 : I've added scans from the short story Ariel's Royal Wedding to the gallery. Ariel made an appearance in Sofia The First: The Floating Palace, so I've made a page for that with a summary, screencaps and scans. I've also added screencaps and a summary for the second episode Ariel appeared in Once Upon a Time: Dark Hollow. To the Other Mermaids section, I've put up Barbie in A Mermaid Tale (+sequel).
