    Red Face Good Idea or Bad Idea? Live Mermaids part of The Little Mermaid Ride Que

    One thing I'd love to see return to Disneyland or some part of the Disneyland Resort are the mermaids. If there is any place besides the lagoon over where Nemo's subs are then this The Little Mermaid ride would be the ideal place to have mermaids return to the park.

    Whether it'd be in a large tank where a mermaid performs under water for the people waiting in line or they build some kind of water area where the performers can swim up into a watered portion of the front entrace area where the mermaids can talk and pose for pictures.

    You could have ariel and all the sisters out there welcoming guests and doing whatever it is mermaids do.

    So... good idea or bad idea.

    I think they can pass on the live mermaids.

    If they really wanted to, they could make a little grotto-ish area on the edge of the lagoon by the attraction. There mermaids could swim up and sit and chat with guests. This would prevent guests from swimming out to them because they would be right there, and would provide a great meet-and-greet area for Ariel.
    KABLAM!

    I think it's a good idea, but I believe that most children today would know that it's not a real mermaid and thus the magic of it would be lost on them.

    Why would they know that?

    i like this idea. but manily just the small grotto area. if there was a large tank if be to hard for the "mermaids" to hold their breath. unless they're swimming around with oxygen tanks...but that kinda defeats the purpose of being a mermaid

    + the watered area would benifit so much more for the guest. they could acutally talk to the guest and get responses.

    Seems kind of odd and all the dirty old men would ogle them.

    Yea, if guests had problems with Esmeralda who was fully clothed they're gonna have a problem with the mermaids.
    Everybody's got a laughin' place-
    trouble is most folks won't take the time to go look for it.

    As cool as it sounds I don't know. They stopped mermaid shows in submarine lagoon for health reasons to the CMs. I do know that Ariel's photoshoot will be there and I think that's enough if it can be elegent aside from just taking a picture with Ariel sitting on a massive clam. Put like a fountain for a meet and greet kind of thing.
