On June 1, 2010, Disney changed the name of Cinderella's Golden Carrousel to Prince Charming Regal Carrousel, and added a backstory to the ride: Now, it's supposedly a training device that the Prince developed after marrying Cinderella, so that the villagers could use it to test their horsemanship skills. No that it matters, though. It's a beautifully restored carousel, built by the Philadelphia Toboggan company in 1917 – one of about 30 of that company's original carousels left working in the United States. Each of the 90 horses is unique, hand-painted, and laid with gold leaf, silver and bronze. Stationary seating for persons with disabilities also is available.
It is a carousel....nothing more, nothing less. I will say it is a very clean and well kept carousel which makes a somewhat common ride into an excellent time waster.
A simple but charming carousel that is very nostalgic and fun for kids and kids at heart. It's good to ride at night when there's no line and you spin around in the magical Fanstayland lights. Do this also if you some time to kill, it's so cute and nice and you'll enjoy it. 6/10
