An Imgur user shared a photo of this King Triton and his tiny Ariel at Disneyland, and it's the sequin-covered embodiment #DadGoals.
While the wee one looks kid-appropriate in a sparkling teal tail, Mer-dad has shunned the usual theme-park uniform of cargo shorts for a bright blue tail of his own — and a gold crown to cap off the look.
