  • A Brief History Of That Time Disneyland Employed Live Mermaids

    After photos of Disneyland's performing mermaids surfaced on the Internet a few years ago, one former sea nymph recalled a peculiar question a park monorail conductor once fielded from an elderly visitor. Whether the woman actually believed in mermaids is a different story, perhaps a testament to the early park's atmosphere of wonder. In 1959, amid a grand, televised re-opening of Tomorrowland -- the futuristic sector of Disney's park -- Disneyland opened its Submarine Voyage ride, inspired by the actual sub that ventured to the North Pole the year before. Passengers aboard the monorail zooming around the park could also see the mermaids from above, sunning themselves on a rock in the lagoon.

The four-time All-Star, whose career ended in 2006 after years of on-court decline brought on by off-court struggles with alcohol abuse and ballooning weight, trekked to the desert on the invitation of Jason Kidd.
