Growing up, my favorite movie was Disney’s “The Little Mermaid.” I loved the music, the thingamabobs, and above all else, Flounder, who to this day is still one of my favorite Disney characters. This is probably the ideal time for me to take a moment to thank my older siblings for letting me watch this movie over and over again on a loop during my entire childhood. 

It’s hard for me to believe, but this classic “tail” is approaching its 30th anniversary. To celebrate, I’m sharing my favorite Disney PhotoPass opportunities available around Walt Disney World Resort where Disney PhotoPass photographers can make you feel part of Ariel’s world.

Take a voyage to Prince Eric’s Castle with the help of a Disney PhotoPass photographer and virtual backdrops at the Disney PhotoPass Studio at Disney Springs.
