School may not be the first you think of when you plan your vacation at Walt Disney World.

But this type of school is different.

The Orlando theme park is offering fans of “The Little Mermaid” lessons on how to be like Ariel, the star of the classic tale. according to The Disney Parks blog.

During the one-hour class, students will be fitted with a tail, and then taught how to move like a mermaid in the shallow end of a pool. In case your little one doesn’t know how to swim, life jackets will be available.

The sessions, which start Tuesday, will be held at three hotels: Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resort. Classes will be held six days a week, except Mondays, at 8 a.m. Eight people will be allowed in each class. Teachers hail from The Mermaid Academy, which also sells colorful tails from $109 on its website.

The cost for the class is $53.25 a pop for guests aged “4 up to 100.”

For reservations, call 407-WDW-PLAY and inquire about Disney World’s “Enchanted Extras.” Agents are booking through the end of September.
