Ariel and Eric celebrate the birth of their new daughter Melody when disaster almost falls upon the new family. Ursula’s sister, Morgana, has come to avenge her sister’s defeat. She almost kidnaps infant Melody, so solemnly Ariel promises that Melody will never know of her mermaid heritage. Melody's gift, a locket inscribed with her name, is dropped in the sea so she can never find it. To protect Melody, Eric and Ariel build a sea wall blocking their palace from the sea and never speak of the mermaid city Atlantica.

Twelve years later Melody is in love with the ocean, though she knows nothing of the mermaid world. She slips out and swims and visits with Scuttle and Sebastian, often pretending she is a mermaid. She feels awkward and out of place in the human world and estranged from her family. During one of her secret swims she finds the locket inscribed with her name she knows her parents were not completely truthful. She asks Ariel about the locket, and when Ariel does not explain Melody runs away to the ocean.

Through the locket, Morgana is able to locate Melody and sends her shark henchman, Undertow, to lure Melody to her. She entices Melody with the promise of being a mermaid, if only she will find the trident and bring it to Morgana. Morgana turns Melody temporarily into a mermaid and she sets off for Atlantica. On the way she makes new friends, Tip the penguin and Dash the walrus.

Meanwhile, Ariel and Eric are frantic. Ariel goes to her father, King Triton and is turned back into a mermaid so she can help search the sea. Eric searches by ship. Melody slips past everyone and gets into Atlantica to steal the trident. Ariel tries to stop Melody before she returns the trident to Morgana. Melody does not listen and is horrified to learn Morgana’s true nature. Morgana controls the ocean with the trident and a battle ensues. Melody manages to retrieve the trident and returns it to King Triton.

Melody and Ariel mend their relationship and King Triton offers to turn Melody permanently into a mermaid. Instead, she decides to remove the sea wall. She reunites the humans and merpeople and finds her place in her family.
