Disneyland’s “live mermaids”, were part of the Submarine Voyage from 1965-1967. They would hold auditions at the Disneyland Hotel in Spring, as this was only a Summer job. The girls made $1.65 an hour to swim the lagoon and wave at passing guests from the rocks.
Urban legend claims that the live mermaid feature was discontinued because a girl drowned. Not true. Only one accidental death of a Cast Member has taken place at Disneyland. It happened in the attraction “America Sings”. A young lady was crushed to death by the rotating stage. Gruesome story! Google it. Anyway, the truth is high doses of chlorine had taken it’s toll on the hair and skin of the “mermaids”. In addition to the chlorine damage, girls had been complaining about the fumes from the submarines’ diesel exhaust.
I would totally love to be a mermaid in Disneyland. I’d be the one who pulled Wendy into the water and tried to drown her.
Let me just tell you something about this final scene. I sat through this whole movie thoroughly enjoying every last little bit of it. I even made a running motion when the first two gifs happened. When the movie finished my boyfriend was very very quiet and he looked a little sad. I was very confused because it was a fantastic movie. He turned to me and asked “is that suppose to represent how our education system doesn’t make enough accommodationsfor [mentally] slower students?" Monster’s University was a little deeper than I thought
INTERNET WE HAVE BEEN OVER THIS HE IS JUST A SLUG THIS WAS A COMEDIC DEVICE.
Seriously! Why does everything have to have a hidden meaning? Sometimes, shit is just shit guys.
