    Does Art of Animation still have Mermaid school at the resort pool?

    Hiya, Heather! I'm so glad you flipped your fins under the sea and found your way to planDisney!

    I'm thrilled to hear that you're looking to stay at Disney's Art of Animation Resort. This resort is home to larger-than-life characters, magically-themed resort rooms, and The Big Blue Pool where you can just keep swimming, just keep swimming! I'd love to help you make some truly magical memories on your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World Resort.

    Heather, I know you're looking for information on the Mermaid School experiences that were previously offered at Disney's Art of Animation Resort! Unfortunately, at the time of this writing, this experience has not returned. I know this isn't the answer you were hoping to hear; however, I have a few suggestions for you if you're looking to add some unique and special experiences to your upcoming trip!

    • Meet Ariel at Her Grotto when in Magic Kingdom Park! This is a great way to meet up with your favorite mermaid in her seaside grotto. 
    • Make an advance reservation at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique! Little ones can get the royal treatment as they transform into their very own princess.
    • Dine at a character meal, such as Cinderella's Royal Table! There's nothing quite like walking into Cinderella Castle to have an incredible dining experience while meeting storybook princesses.
    • Become a part of Ariel's world by experiencing Under the Sea ~ Journey of The Little Mermaid! Board a clamshell and sing along as you follow the enchanting story of Ariel's life.
    • Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog, which is a great resource to stay up-to-date on exciting news and announcements!
    There are so many ways to experience the princesses in the parks, from character interactions to Enchanting Extras! I'm wishing upon a star that your upcoming trip is an extra special one.

    Faith, trust, and pixie dust -
