Magic, excitement, imaginations running wild, and making memories that last a lifetime all rolled into two enchanting locations; Disney World and Disneyland. Adults and children alike can be instantly transported to Frontierland, Critter Country, Adventureland, Star Wars Land, Tomorrowland, New Orleans Square, among many other amazing locations. Rides such as Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Haunted Mansion, Grizzly River Run, and countless others can be a lot of fun for anyone looking for a little family friendly adventure. However, if a slower paced attraction is what you are looking for consider checking out Prince Charming’s Regel Carrousel in Disney World, King Arthur’s Carrousel, or King Triton’s Carousel of the Sea in Disneyland; all boasting beautifully decorated animals and whimsical music. These rides are classic park favorites, in fact King Arthur’s Carrousel is one of the original rides that Walt Disney himself chose to be part of the Disneyland Park when he opened it in 1955. Most of the horses featured are over 90 years old!
Keeping these carrousels in top working condition and in impeccable shape is important for the longevity of these gorgeous pieces. With many children visiting these attractions, accessibility and safety had to be considered while performing renovations over the past few years. A major upgrade to all three carousels included the removal of the old bar stirrups and installation of new slip resistant steps. The old bars made it difficult for small children to climb on the animals unassisted and harder for adults with physical limitations to board themselves.
