    I had read somewhere-not sure where, I've been on so many sites and blogs-hat there was a "mermaid training" type experience at the Caribbean Beach Resort pools. Is this true?My daughter would love it!

    Greetings, D Leah!

    Thanks so much for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Just being on a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is magical, but there are SO many ways to enhance your trip even more. I love searching through the enchanting extras, packages, tours, and recreation options to make my vacations truly extraordinary.

    It sounds like you may have looked at the Disney Parks Blog post that mentioned two brand new and exciting options available for children this summer. Mermaid School is a splashtacular option for Guests 4 and older at select Walt Disney World Resort Hotels. They will be given a "tail" and led through some pool activities to swim just like Ariel herself. This is offered at Disney's Art of Animation Resort, Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, and Disney's Yacht and Beach Club Resorts. Although prices are subject to change without notice, currently this experience is $50/person (plus tax). Reservations can be made by calling (407) 939-7529, and a credit card guarantee is required. I wish I could take part in this fun experience!

    Another option available to boys and girls 4-12 years old wishing to go on a scallywagging pirate adventure is Captain Hook's Pirate Crew at Disney's Beach Club Resort. This experience not only offers a swashbuckling night of fun but also includes dinner. It's a great opportunity for your child to feel like a real pirate while allowing mom and dad to have some adult time as well. I just booked this experience for my son and plan on taking advantage of the time he is there by trying out some fine dining we wouldn't normally experience as a family.

    I hope this helps, and I wish you all a vacation that is practically perfect in every way!
