Prince Charming Regal Carrousel reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Prince Charming Regal Carrousel, a carousel in Fantasyland at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom.
Written by Robert Niles
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.
Relaxing, riding on horses near a castle is awesome! - Brendan Harrison
There is a certain appeal to have all white horses but it also seems to be a crowd control technique - choose any horse because they look alike designed to speed up load/unload. I miss the variety of animals, poses, or at least paint that other carousels have. - Emily Brux
this is a classic. not like the other rides! - Emma King
Only a couple carousels trump this classic, but this one easily takes the cake as far as how it looks at night. - Tom Rigg
The carousel is in pristine condition but the lack of a organ and speed unlike Knoebels carousels and Canobie lake's carousel. - Mike Mills
Gorgeous detail work and a nice flat ride for kids. Also great photos ops for parents as well. - Brandie S
