    How will I know when the 2020 dates are released for the Mermaid school at the Caribbean Beach Resort? Is there somewhere I can check other calling ( 407-939-7529 ) number? I talked to a cast member on 1/26/2020 and they have not released any dates yet.

    Hi there, Beverly! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I’m so excited that soon you will be headed to Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort for your next Walt Disney World vacation! I recently toured the Resort and loved the immersive island theming and delicious waterfront dining restaurant; Sebastian’s Bistro! I also learned about the Mermaid School for children ages 4 and older, during which "students" are fitted with mermaid tails and enjoy a one-hour small-group class to learn to swim like mermaids in the Resort pool! How fun!

    I spoke with a Cast Member in Disney’s Enchanting Extras Collection regarding your question, and she let me know that Mermaid School is currently not in service while the Mermaids have migrated even further south for the colder months, but she thinks that it will be back in session very soon! They were told that this may happen anytime after late February, but no dates are available for booking at this time.

    I do also have some potentially useful planning information. Reservations can be obtained by contacting Enchanting Extras Collection via the phone number you mentioned. In the past, the schedule has been as follows: Classes were offered at 8 am only, and were held at Disney's Art of Animation Resort Sundays and Thursdays, Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort on Wednesdays and Fridays, and Disney's Yacht Club Resort and Disney's Beach Club Resort on Tuesdays and Saturdays. The Cast Member I spoke to felt it was highly likely that they would keep this same schedule once Mermaid School resumes, but of course this is subject to change. The best course of action would definitely be to try back via phone every couple of weeks starting in early February, or look out for announcements on the Disney Parks Blog! Of course, feel free to check back with us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel and we would be happy to provide an update whenever you’d like!

    Thanks for your question and I hope to see ya real soon!
