Tips & Fun Facts

If you want to take photos of friends and family as they gallop round, advise them to sit on the outside row as this offers the best view.

Prince Charming Regal Carrousel has an impressive history. Built in 1917 by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company, it was first homed at the Detroit Garden Park. In 1928 it moved states to Olympic Park, NJ where it remained until 1967, when the park closed. Disney rescued the carrousel and had it fully restored in time for Walt Disney World's grand opening in 1971.
Formerly called Cinderella's Golden Carrousel, it was renamed Prince Charming Regal Carrousel on June 1, 2010.
There are a total of 90 horses on the carrousel. Each horse is unique, having their own colour schemes and decoration, as well as being individually numbered.
The horses on the very outside of the carousel are the largest, decreasing in size to the smallest horses in the centre of the carousel.
Only one side of the horses is very intricately detailed - the side that faces outwards, the inside of the horse is very plain.
23-carat gold leaf is used to decorate the horses, real silver and bronze is also used.
The Carrousel comes alive at night, with 2,325 lights illuminating it.
This attraction is inspired by the Disney animated classic, "Cinderella" that was released in 1950.
An antique organ, part of the original fittings plays a variety of Disney songs during its operation such as 'A Whole New World', 'Hakuna Matata', 'Be Our Guest', 'Heigh Ho', 'Someday My Prince Will Come', 'When You Wish Upon A Star' and many more.
