The Little Mermaid(s) August 1960
Not satisfied with faux mermaids for his Submarine Voyage attraction in Tomorrowland, Walt decided to get a few "real" ones.
These mermaids were only seen during the first year of this attraction, then disappeared until the Tencennial in 1965.
From summer 1965 through summer 1967, the mermaids could be seen for four hours a day on the rocks in the middle of the lagoon.
Another detailed closeup from the August 1960 snapshots:

followed by the obligatory closeup, which shows the compartment where the female cast members changed into their mermaid costumes:
