Did you know that exactly 87 royal steeds make up Prince Charming Regal Carrousel at Magic Kingdom Park and each one of them is completely unique?


The horses, which were originally crafted in 1917 for Detroit Palace Garden Park, each sport looks all their own, dressed up in a myriad of colorful saddles, bridles, breast plates, armor and other festive gear. Is it me, or does the early morning sunshine cast just a touch more of a “fantasy” look to this classic attraction?


  • Lovely! This carousel is my daughter’s favorite attraction and it has been the setting of many wonderful memories…

  • Wow! I really had to do quite a few double takes on that picture – It really does look like a painting! Brilliant! The sun was rising just right 🙂

  • The painting above of Cinderella’s Castle and the Carousel is gorgeous! Is there anywhere we can purchase it? Thanks! 🙂

    • It’s actually a photograph. 🙂
