He had a crown and everything!

Proof that fathers will often go the extra mile and then some to please their little girls, this dad donned a mermaid tail along with a crown, nogal, to be the ‘mer-dad” to his dressed-up daughter during a trip to Disneyland. The youngster – who was dressed as Ariel from The Little Mermaid – looked as if she was being accompanied by King Triton as they headed into the park.

“'That's a good dad right there,” wrote one user, while another remarked: “Begin slow clap. That's a cool dad right there!”
