Prince Charming Regal Carrousel

Go round and round on one of 90 galloping steeds impeccably cared for by Disney cast members.  Listen to music from famous Disney animated films. As you go round, see the story of Cinderella unfold on the 18 hand painted vignettes located on the inner rounding board, above the horses.  Rarely much of a line and what a delight it is!

Fun Facts:
While the Disney Imagineers are famous for meticulously replicating things of antiquity, this 90-horse carousel required restoration and preservation. It was built in 1917 as "Liberty." Its amusement park life began in Detroit, Mich. It was refurbished during the latter 1920s and added spinning fun to Olympic Park in Maplewood, N.J., for 39 years -- until 1967 when it became available and was purchased by Disney.

The restoration included a new look celebrating the story of Cinderella in 18 hand-painted scenes on the canopy. The hard-maple horses are in five sizes -- the largest on the outside of the five rows. The band organ that adds music to the ride is part of the antique masterpiece. The carousel restoration was completed in time for the opening of Magic Kingdom on Oct. 1, 1971.
