    Aruba? More like snooze-ruba, right? If you're bored with those usual vacation destinations that are nothing like the Disney movies you grew up watching, you are so in luck.

    HomeAway.com, the world's leading vacation rental website, is doing their part to make your childhood fantasy a reality with their Disney princess-inspired rental locations. Like the Isla Mujeres getaway in the photo above that's inspired by Triton's underwater castle in The Little Mermaid. It's not actually under the sea, but it's by the sea. Close enough. It's beautiful, right? And you can swim with dolphins! You'll basically be a mermaid while on vacation.

    So if you ever wanted to live like Cinderella, Belle or Snow White, even for just a couple of days, then check out these destinations that are basically Disney movies come to life, except with a reasonable price tag (starting at $105 a night!). Just click on the links to get more info and if you go on these trips, Instagram the crap out of it so all your friends can be jealous:
