    Talking Will We Ever See Mermaids Back In Disneyland's Lagoon?

    Yes it's great the subs are coming back, maybe the whole nemo thing wasn't necessary meaning they could have created a new original sub story that maybe had a cameo of nemo...

    But now with Nemo plastered all over this updated attraction... will Mermaids have a place in the lagoon?

    I wonder what you gals and guys think regarding Disneyland Mermaids making a return in a Nemo themed Lagoon.

    I think the Lagoon is big enough for both all new Mermaids [and Mermen!] and the Nemo subs. Don't you?

    They may return, but new costuming and non-discriminory practices will cause there to be mermen, and the costumes will have to accomidate wheelchairs, pregnant mermaids, and plus size mermaids.

    That would actually make it a lot more fun.

    As nice as it would be to have them back, I don't think it will happen unless they can resolve some of the issues from before. Now if you really want to see live mermaids, check out Weeki Wachee Springs in Florida. http://www.weekiwachee.com/

    Not likely.

    But watch for Mermoids and Merbots

    I think mermaids are appropriate anywhere! J/K - I actually don't think they would fit thematically into Nemo. But if they did fit, and they actually brought them back, I would quit my job and be first in line in casting!!!

    There were a few problems, from what I understand. For one thing the costumes would be damaged by the chemicals in the water and had to be replaced frequently. Also there was a problem with silly guests jumping into the lagoon and swimming out to meet them.

    I'm one of those guests that would brave the treacherous waters to kiss a mermaid. Hubba hubba.

    Let the fish kissin' begin!

    I bet there will mermaids for a Premiere party or Media Day for the re-surfacing subs. John Lassiter (who took over the creative helm on the project right?) has proven that attention to detail is key and what better way to pay homage to the retired attraction theme than have some waving mermaids for a photo op for the world to see.....?? Even if its only for one day. Im also anxious to see if anything else from the original will be quietly left in to pay homage to the retired attraction....maybe the sea serpent?
