Discovering The Magic Kingdom

The ultimate Disneyland book!


The Mermaids of Tomorrowland

Posted by Joshua Shaffer on March 25, 2017 at 12:55 PM

MERMAIDS IN DISNEYLAND? That’s right they are real. For the summers of 1965, 66 & 67 you could have caught a glimpse of them. They would swim around for 4 hours each day to entertain guests by doing aquatic stunts. Sometimes they would swim up to the people floating by in the submarine and peek through the porthole. Some of the girls started to complain about the fumes from the then diesel subs and the high chlorine content of the water. So it pressed Disney to remove them. The Cast Member girls who portrayed the lovely mermaids made a reported $1.65 an hour. There were some instances when young men were caught jumping into the water and swimming out to the mermaids basking in the sun on the coral in the middle of the lagoon. Raise your hand if you want to see them return.
