"The Little Mermaid" is the start of the Disney Renaissance. From then on, Disney makes "Beauty and the Beast", "Aladdin", "The Lion King", "Mulan" and a lot of other animated musicals adapted from fairy tales.
In terms of quality, "The Little Mermaid" is rather mediocre. It may be the worst Disney film produced during the Renaissance era. Particularly, it changes the tragic ending of Andersen's tale to a happy ending, almost completely destroying the themes and motifs delivered by Andersen.
