Mermaid alert: is this Disney’s creepiest resort?

Although Disney has surpassed itself of late with the revival of the Princess – Frozen is now the most downloaded Disney film of all time – most women in their twenties and up still feel a special connection to one of the original line up of Disney Princesses (I’m talking pre-Tiana and Merida here).

The character in question? The Little Mermaid herself, Ariel. Despite our conflicting morals regarding men, underage marriage and trusting purple tentacled relatives I will forever hold her dear in my heart. And because of this affection for the green-tailed subaquatic girl, now and then I get sent links by friends and family alerting me to mermaid-related news (I’ve already blogged about Sofia Coppola’s reworking of The Little Mermaid. Fingers, or fins, crossed this is the year it gets released). The other day I was thus introduced to a mermaidaholic’s paradise: Disney’s Art of Animation Resort with its own Ariel’s ‘Part of your World’ rooms.

Opened in 2012, this Floridian Disney hotel is basically everything a grown up fan could desire. It’s kitsch, creepy and just a bit too much. Behold…

See what I mind? Does it remind anyone else of a Disney Zombieland? The Art of Animation resort also boasts The Lion King, Cars and Finding Nemo suites too.  And all are just as mind boggling. Not that I care – this place definitely just got added to my bucket list.

    It’s seriously extreme Disney! I’ve actually been – the Finding Nemo area has giant seagulls that go ‘Mine mine mine mine’ when you walk past!
