Tokyo DisneySea: Mermaid Lagoon

One of the seven maritime destinations of Tokyo DisneySea is Mermaid Lagoon. Go under the sea to Triton’s kingdom and be part of Ariel’s world.

Ride a flying fish! The wavy rise and fall of Flounder’s Flyin’ Fish Coaster mimics a ride on the back of Ariel’s best friend as he jumps in and out of the sea.

Board a colorful hermit crab for a jolly spin around Scuttles’ Scooters. Silly Scuttles! His telescope is backwards.

Follow Ariel on an adventure deep inside the wooden hull of a sunken ship. At the Mermaid Lagoon Theater, Ariel and her undersea friends “swim” freely around this “liquid theater” as they take a stand against the evil sea-witch Ursula in a dazzling musical performance.

Jumpin’ Jellyfish hoist seashells up to gently float back down on this “undersea” parachute sensation. Or venture across the way, climb aboard a seashell at the Blowfish Balloon Race, and “swim” higher and higher as the blowfish race along. When the race is over, spin through a whirlpool around the ocean floor in a kelp cup.

Younger Guests who’d rather check out the sights can climb through a fishing net, explore a treasure trove and explore Ariel’s favorite hideaway, or stop by Ariel’s Grotto to meet The Little Mermaid herself.

Today’s Takeaway:

My daughter loves Disney’s The Little Mermaid! Recently her birthday wish came true when she became a mermaid herself! Well, OK, she got a mermaid costume that she can actually swim in 😉

Let Tokyo DisneySea’s Mermaid Lagoon inspire your homeschool day today. Set up an under-the-sea themed lunch or afternoon snack. Serve Goldfish crackers, Swedish Fish (gummy candies), blue Jello, and glass of sparkling water. If you have time, pick up some colorful candy melts at your local hobby store and some seashell molds and create unique after dinner desserts.

For craft time, download and print this paper mermaid doll template from What We Do All Day (CLICK IMAGE TO ENLARGE). Have your kids color, cut out, and decorate it, and then set it aside while you re-create this regal castle from Homeschool Years for her to reside in!

    This is amazing!!! I wish we at WDW had this much Mermaid fun!!!

    • Jodi / MagicalMouseSchoolhouse

      I know my daughter would absolutely love that too!

  • Sara

    It would be really awesome if Disney World would expand and bring this to one of the parks! I heard about Avatar coming to Animal Kingdom in 2017. Hope little mermaid will come soon!

    • Jodi / MagicalMouseSchoolhouse

      I’d much rather have mermaids than weird blue people 😉
