Re: how did you find/pick/figure out your favorite?
Ariel is my favorite firstly because The Little Mermaid is the first Disney movie I remember watching so it holds a special place in my heart. Secondly I've been fascinated with mermaids ever since my Navy days.
I was a sonar tech so I'd sit there and listen to sounds in the ocean trying to hear a submarine. On 2 occasions I heard something that sounded like a woman singing.
