Uncle Jessie... er, I mean John Stamos and his girlfriend, Caitlin McHugh, hit up Disney World and did what any diehard Disney fan would do — they dressed up like one of Disney's most beloved couples: Ariel and Prince Eric. McHugh wore an outfit inspired by land Ariel, including her iconic blue hair bow. Stamos, who has naturally dark hair that already somewhat resembles Prince Eric's, sported blue pants, a basic white shirt, and a red belt that gave his outfit total Prince Eric vibes.
However, and I know this may sound nit-picky, but I'm a huge Disney nerd and dressed like Prince Eric at the 2015 D23 convention, so I've gotta say that I'm a little disappointed in Stamos for wearing sneakers instead of boots. Sure, it isn't going to be comfortable wandering around Disney World in boots, but boots are almost as essential to a Prince Eric look as the red belt!
Stamos was a guest on Monday's episode of The View, and the show is broadcasting from Disney World all week, so it only makes sense that the couple would roll into town a few days early to enjoy the theme park. On Sunday, Stamos shared a photo of himself and McHugh to the 'gram, along with this insanely sweet caption: "I'll be Prince Eric to your Ariel any ol' time." Talk about adorable!
McHugh posted a similar pic to her own Instagram account, and in the accompanying caption she acknowledged that her outfit wasn't necessarily screaming Ariel from The Little Mermaid. "I know I look more like Vanessa," she said, "but I swear I have some natural red highlights." For all of y'all non-Disney nerds, Vanessa was the name Ursula used when she disguised herself as a human to trick Prince Eric into marrying her instead of Ariel.
I personally think that McHugh looks more like Ariel than Vanessa, and in a way, it's actually a good thing that their outfits were just inspired by the characters. Disney parks are very strict about not letting adults wear costumes as it can confuse children and guests looking to take photos with the characters at the parks. So if Stamos and McHugh looked identical to Prince Eric and Ariel then it could have been problematic. But theme park rules aside, the couple is totally giving all of us Disney fans major outfit goals! Their photos are basically the definition of swoon-worthy.
