Technically, sexual harassment can only occur in the employment context, unless maybe the mermaid was harassed when in a mermaid school.

However, I doubt mermans were contemplated when those rules were created.

...I did a quick online search but could not easily determine in what year the mermaid program was stopped. But from the photos I found online, I see that many of those gals were very attractive and had very nice smiles.



According to the
Daveland web page, The mermaids were in the lagoon "From summer 1965 through summer 1967, the mermaids could be seen for four hours a day on the rocks in the middle of the lagoon. A few overly amorous males apparently swam out to the rocks to the meet the mermaids". Lots of photos on the web page of both the animatronic and live mermaids.

Mermaids at the Republican National Convention

However, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration insists that mermaids aren't real.

This thread is brilliantly bizarre.

The link to the Sun-Sentinel article that began this thread no longer works. I think this is probably the same article:

How did the mermaids get from Submarine Lagoon to here?

Nice postcard! The photo was taken when the park's vegetation was still small. The last time I was there, the area in the background is now quite wooded and shaded by very mature trees.

Interesting. I always think about the golden age of Disneyland, like when I was really young, and wish I could go time travel back there...but the truth is, the vegetation was a lot shorter back then. The place looks better now, in all honesty.

Yeah, I know what you mean. And I also think about long-lost family photos of me as a kid, in and around stuff that's now been torn down. Like the big pirate ship in Fantasyland -- I'm certain there was rum aboard even then!!!
