When you fly over the mermaid lagoon one of the mermaids resembles Ariel from The Little Mermaid (1989). She was not intended to look like Ariel, this is a myth that one hopes to be true. Since this attraction was built in 1955 and refurbished in 1983, the film did not yet exist. On the other hand, the mermaid in the mermaid lagoon in Magic Kingdom was made to resemble Ariel.
This is the original mermaids before the revamp in Magic Kingdom.
