As for the disguise, The Little Mermaid The lovers sought to replicate the film’s infamous “Kiss the Girl” scene, which fans likely remember from the film itself or the popular Walt Disney World attraction Under the Sea ~ Journey of The Little Mermaid.

Both visuals feature Prince Eric in his traditional white collared shirt and a two-legged Ariel in her blue dress and giant bow. The pair sit in a boat surrounded by a romantic mood created by land and sea creatures teaming up to encourage Eric to “kiss the girl.” The scene has been iconic since the film was released over 30 years ago.
