Once you start Poor Unfortunate Prince and speak to Ariel about the situation, you’ll also have to consult Merlin. He’ll tell you to place Eric’s Castle in the Village, which you’ll rebuild using 10,000 Star Coins. Build the house, find his flute inside and bring it to Ariel. She’ll show appreciation for you finding the flute, repeat Eric’s name three times, and use the power of True Love’s Kiss to restore him to his human self. Prince Eric will appear in the Valley, leading to the final part of the story.
