Disney fans can finally become part of Ariel’s world. Guests staying at select Disney World hotels have a chance to “swim like a mermaid” this year. Participants enrolled in the Mermaid School will be fitted with a “tail” and be taught how to splash around like the mythical sea creatures. The “Under the Sea”-inspired classes will last an hour each and cost $50, the Disney Parks Blog reported. Classes will be led by instructors from The Mermaid Academy, an Orlando-based company that offers swimming lessons to “make your mermaid dreams come true.” Owner Joe O’Rouke is thrilled with his new partnership with The Mouse. “We’re a very small company compared to Disney — we never thought this would happen,” he said. “We’re one of the lucky ones.” The Mermaid School begins mid-March and runs until December this year. Destinations offering the aquatic experience include Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resorts.
