In the early hours of the morning, the new cast member is introduced to his work location in the park. He learns his new environment and practices pulling a streetcar while Main Street, U.S.A., is empty and quiet. Then, when he’s ready – it’s showtime!
The new cast member is introduced to his first guests during one of our Magic Mornings at Disneyland park – when the park opens early for Disneyland Resort hotel guests. This smaller group of guests allows the new recruit to get comfortable with his role and the new faces he’ll encounter each day. It’s an exciting time for the horse, his handlers and guests.
Early last year, we shared this video giving you a look at the Circle D Corral horses backstage and in their roles on Main Street, U.S.A. Now that you know all that goes into getting them ready, take a look and see them in action!
Next time you’re enjoying a ride on the horse-drawn streetcars on Main Street, U.S.A., take a moment to thank your drivers for their hard work – both of them!
