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.


3 October 2016 : I've been doing some tweaks and spring-cleaning all over the website, so let me know if anything doesn't work! I've overhauled the long-untouched movie, sequel and prequel pages, which should be more useful now, with more general info about the films, DVD releases and other bits 'n bobs. I've also revamped the videos page, where I've given up providing downloads (it's just too much hassle) and am just going to link to videos that are posted elsewhere. Over in the gallery, I've added four more books of the Treasure Chest series ("The Crabby Conductor", "Dear Diary", "Detective Sebastian", and "A Dragon's Tail"), and over in the Other Mermaids section I've added Mermaids of Tiburon and Barbie Dreamtopia.
21 August 2016 : It looks like the live-action film version of Ariel's story is happening after all, which is something to look forward to soon! On the comics page I've added "The Christmas Spirit" comic, plus I've added scans from four more books of the Treasure Chest series ("The Big Switch", "Castles in the Sand", "A Charmed Life", and "Cheer Up, Sebastian") and excerpts from Disney Villains: Delightfully Evil to the gallery. Over on the section of other mermaids, there's new pages for Mad About Men and Peter Pan no Bouken.
29 May 2016 : At time of writing this, the Little Mermaid Hollywood Bowl concert with Sara Bareilles and Jodi Benson is a few days away, and hopefully there'll be some cool news and tidibits for fans that didn't get to attend. Here on Daring to Dream I've added a bunch more stuff to the gallery, namely scans from Ariel is My Babysitter and Flounder Loves Ariel, one more Disney Princess comic, a few more colouring pages, and a few more activity pages. Over on the section of Other Mermaids, I've added The New Adventures of Peter Pan and Stephen Chow's Mermaid.
20 March 2016 : I've started scanning in books from the Grolier Treasure Chest series, and to start with four books have been added to the gallery ("Another Fine Mess", "Ariel's Painting Party", "As Fun As You Feel" and "Bee Nice") with the rest to follow soon. I've also added scans from Ariel's Song, a sticker activity book that doubles as a movie retelling picturebook, plus a few more pages from various Princess colouring books. To the section on Other Mermaids, there are new pages for the mermaids of Camp Lakebottom and 2015's Peter & Wendy.
25 January 2016 : I've added synopsis and scans from the last three novels to the novels page, so that page is now complete! Other additions to the gallery are the colouring pages from Ariel and the Sparkle Fish, scans from movie picturebook adapation Ariel's Underwater Adventure, and scans from the last chapter of the Storybook Treasury, Sebastian's Medal of Honour, which is an adaptation of series episode "The Great Sebastian". To the section of Other Mermaids, I've added pages for Nobita's Great Battle of the Mermaid King and 2015's Pan.
20 December 2015 : There's a bunch of new additions in the gallery: Ariel and the Whale Song, the Classic Series movie adaptation, more colouring pages (from the Little Princess colouring book, Art Therapy and various Disney Princess sources), activity pages (also from various Disney Princess sources), and a few pages from the Learning Ladder series. Thanks to a submission, I've added pages from the 1995 Russian comic. And over to the section on Other Mermaids, I've got pages up for Nautica from Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Nicki from Supernatural.
15 November 2015 : There were two Disney cover albums released recently: "We Love Disney", which has a cover of "Part of Your World" by Jessie J, and "May J. Sings Disney", which has covers for "Part of Your World" and "Under the Sea", so I've added listings for both on the music page. Over in the gallery, I've added scans from the Mouseworks Classic Storybook movie picturebook, Ariel's Fishy Face Contest, Issues #26-31 of Ariel's World, and excerpts from the Princess Joke Book and How to be a Princess. Plus, thanks to a submission, I've added an issue from a UK Little Mermaid comic to the comics page, though I don't know much else about this series. For the section on other versions of TLM, I've made a page for the television anime Mahou no Mako-chan.
16 August 2015 : I made a page for the Ariel-related issues of Kilala Princess, the shoujo manga that crosses over with the various princess. Other additions to the gallery are scans of Stormy the Sea Horse (from the Storybook Treasury), Issues #21-25 of Ariel's World, and the picturebook A Merry Mermaid Christmas. There's also two more mermaids added to the Other Mermaids sections, from the Aladdin TV series and Barbie and the Secret Door.
