Giant Mermaid and Lighthouse

The whole building is a spectacular mural, with the sculpted mermaid and lighthouse. Worth a stop, especially if you like inexpensive Disney souvenirs.

Blond Mermaid and Fake Lighthouse

Manufactured ocean scenes are part of the plentiful eye candy on souvenir shops along the roads leading to Disney attractions. These independent businesses often attempt to leverage current characters and motifs exciting children. A generic, pretty mermaid, like the giant one swimming across this gift shop facade for over a decade, may evoke an archetype of sailors' lore, rather than some legally trademarked character.

No one cares about fake lighthouses.
