New Main Street Horses Join Disneyland Resort Cast

Today we’re happy to introduce Disney Parks Blog followers to our newest Disneyland Resort horses. From left to right in the photo above, please meet Bob, Chad, Val, Chief and Tom!

As I recently learned, adding new horses is a normal part of the operation. Equine cast members retire, just like human cast members, so new horses are brought in to keep the team at the proper number. And while five new horses may seem like a lot, turns out the Disneyland Resort has been a little …well … “short-hoofed” lately, so these additions make perfect sense.

We’ll be introducing you to each horse individually in upcoming posts, so make sure to stay tuned!


  • Absolutely love the horses. The young Lady that made her debut on the 60th Diamond Celebration 24 hour event is my favorite. Can’t wait to me the new guys.

  • Love the horses! Welcome! I would love to see the horse for the Headless Horseman ride. Black Stallion I assume? ?

  • Oh goodness. Can’t wait to see ya’ll in the park.

    Looking forward to hearing more about these beauties.

  • Donna is Gabe one that is retiring?

  • Where do the retired horses go?

  • Welcome Bob, Chad, Val, Chief, and Tom. The horses are a big part of the Magic.

  • I love this!!! I was just saying I wish there was more information published about the horses 🙂 Yay thank you!!
