    Lightbulb Disney is starting a mermaid school

    So I saw this link on facebook that Disney will be starting mermaid schools this spring at select resorts. Trying to look if this is true. What is everyone thoughts if Disney did this?

    I almost wonder why it took them so long.

    I'm surprised they never attempted a mermaids franchise. (closest thing was the Little Mermaid TV series) Twenty bucks says that if the live-action remake does well they're gonna go crazy with mermaid stuff, ha ha. It's funny, mermaids have gotten more popular in the last few years but not many companies have really tried to cash in yet.

    Anyway, cool idea. I bet a lot of guests will enjoy it.

    It is true I heard from insider knowledge yeah, I shared it too! I think it's pretty cool. Maybe it'll help with some of the public perceptions.

    I like that they're using an actual kids mermaiding school with experienced swim teachers and the whatnot
    Take the wave now and know that you're free
    Turn your back on the land face the sea
    Face the wind now so wild and so strong
    When you think of me
    Wave to me and send me a song

    Yes I background checked this, it's being done by the well established Mermaid Academy in Florida who have been operating with instructors/lifeguards since 2014. They have an excellent record with lots of great reviews. They do cater to all ages and just change their ratio depending on the age group and how many folks are participating. There's lots of great videos of them online. They have always catered strictly to the resort crowd and not general public, so it won't take away anything from publicly working mers and could land more pro mers jobs too.

    I think this will be a good thing overall now that I know more about it

    Sounds good. I know Disney holds themselves to a really high standard and usually thoroughly think through these guest experiences in great detail.
