Rate a Ride: Prince Charming Regal Carrousel

Fastpass: No

Year Introduced: Oct 1971

Head to Fantasyland and the first thing you’ll spot is the amazingly beautiful Carrousel settled in the middle of the area; similar to the Carrousel you see in the Mary Poppins movie.

As you’re passing this Carrousel, you might think, why would I waste my time on that? There are a few reasons you might want to put that Carrousel on your to do list.

One: If you have younger children this ride will be a must. In fact for the first four years, this was our son’s favorite ride.

Two: There’s something magical about a Carrousel that makes you feel like a kid again. Perhaps it’s the music, the breeze ruffling your hair as you spin around and around, or maybe it’s just the idea of riding a horse. And yes, hop on board; as an adult you can ride too. Although try not to push kids out of the way in order to reach your favorite steed.

Three: And best of all, there is usually not much of a line for the Disney World Regal Carrousel.

Tips:

  • Make sure not to miss The Sword in the Stone which is located right next to the Carrousel. Kids love to try their hand at pulling the sword from the stone. And who knows… maybe you’ll free the sword and become Prince of the Day!
  • Feel free to skip the Carrousel and go back to it later as the line is rarely long; although, let’s face it, the Carrousel does have its long-line moments, as do all Disney rides.
  • Ride the Carrousel at night! The beautiful lights add a special magic to the ride!

Rating: 4/5

Rating Comment:  Even though this is a classic theme park attraction there is just something about riding the Carrousel at a Disney Park.   The line is usually short, so give this one a shot, you may just like it.
