Mermaid Scales & Pirate Tales: VIP Experience

A one-of-a-kind experience for your little ones.

Come experience a real life FantaSEA, as you are made over and meet a mermaid exclusively. Into the Grotto where Mermaids dwell, to find the treasure Pirates hide so well. Gold and Silver, Scales and Tales, your transformation begins when you find the Sails.

Mermaid Scales and Pirate Tales is an EXCLUSIVE VIP Experience designed for guests aged three to ten years. Stand out like a fish out of water when your land princess is primped into a Mermaid Princess! Or, if it’s a pirate’s life for you, prepare to rule the seven seas when you are transformed into a Pirate Buccaneer! While visiting Mermaid Grotto, all Mermaid Princesses and Pirates get a personal meet and greet with a real-life Mermaid and Pirate.
