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.

RIP Samuel E. Wright
November 20, 1946 - May 24, 2021

Note: The above video is not by me and was posted in February, before his passing.


30 May 2021 : Sad news this week, as Samuel E. Wright passed away at 74. :(
In site updates, I've updated the comics page to include some info on the Dark Horse movie adapation that came out in three issues from the end of 2019, though I'm not including page scans since those are available elsewhere (I've put a link). To the gallery I've added scans from two short stories ("The Tambourine Dance" and "Pearl of Wisdom") and excerpts from two books ("Disney Princess: A Celebration of Art & Creativity" and "Will You Be My Villaintine?"). Site visitor Shira let me know that Ursula made an appearance in The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse, so I've made a page for that. (Thanks!) I've updated the Expanded Universe Novels page for a little blurb on "City of Villains". For music, I've added the lyrics and embeds for DCappella's covers of Under the Sea and Kiss the Girl. In the section on Other Mermaids, I've made a page for Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.
15 November 2020 : I've added a bunch of scans to the gallery: Flounder to the Rescue, excerpts ("Villains: The Wicked Collection", "The World is Yours", "The Disney Villain", "Essential Guide" and "Essential Villain"), one comic ("Happy to be a Mermaid") and an activity page. I updated the Expanded Universe Novels page to include some info about "Part of Your Nightmare", which I've managed to read, plus another upcoming YA book. For the section on other mermaids, I made a page for Lu Over the Wall.
19 July 2020 : I've updated the page for ABC's The Little Mermaid Live! concert with some images and info, and related to that added the lyrics and embeds for the songs of the production, i.e.: Fathoms Below, Daughters of Triton, Part of Your World, Part of Your World (reprise), Under the Sea, Poor Unfortunate Souls, Her Voice, Les Poissons, Kiss the Girl, If Only and Poor Unfortunate Souls (reprise). Over in the gallery, I've added scans from another movie adaptation ("Sebastian's Story"), two books ("Flounder's Gift" and "Ariel's Wish"), some excerpts ("Royally Fierce"), one Disney Princess story, a bunch of activity pages, assorted Disney Princess colouring pages and other colouring pages ("Friendship Colouring" and "Classics Colouring"). In the section about Other Mermaids, I've made pages for Xena: Warrior Princess and Blue My Mind. On the Expanded Universe Novels page, I added a mention of "Part of Your Nightmare", but that section is mostly empty since I haven't read the book yet.
30 November 2019 : Some changes! In order to reduce space and bandwidth usage, I've removed most of the audio samples over in the music section, replacing them with youtube embeds wherever I can.
14 October 2019 : I've added a whole bunch of scans into the gallery, for two movie adaptation books ("Animated Classics" and "My First Bedtime Storybook"), three Lego Princess books ("Lost and Found", "The Friendship Bridge" and "The Secret Room"), the junior graphic novel "Ariel and the Sea Wolf", and a bunch of colouring pages from various Princess books and the Villains Colouring Book. Descendants 3 came out recently, so I've updated the Descendants page to include that, with some screencaps. Related, I've included the Descendants 3 soundtrack on the music page, and added lyrics pages for the songs that Uma performs on, namely: Night Falls, Break This Down, Dig a Little Deeper and Rotten to the Core - D3 Remix. I've also preemptively added mentions on the misc page for the upcoming The Little Mermaid Live! show which will airĀ on ABC in November, plus the upcoming live-action film, though there are no pages for these media yet.
24 February 2019 : The film has a new release in conjunction with its 30th Anniversary, so I've updated the movie page to include info about the DVD/Blu-Ray/digital release and its extras. The group DCappella recovered a cover for this release, so I've added lyrics and audio samples for this Part of Your World and embedded the accompanying music video on the videos page. DCappella has also earlier recorded a Part of Your World/A Whole New World mash-up, so I added the lyrics and audio sample for that, too. I've made a page for the film Wreck It Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks the Internet, because CGI Ariel makes an appearance in that one. Over in the gallery, I've added scans from three Lego Princess books, one Princess comic, and excerpts of The Castle Collection. For the section on other versions of TLM, I've made a page for the 2018 indie The Little Mermaid, and in the Other Mermaids section I've made a page for the series Tidelands.
