King Arthur Carousel (Disneyland)
King Arthur Carousel Description:
At the King Arthur Carousel, climb aboard an ornate horse and gallop through a whirling backdrop of color and sound.
Make your way beneath a vibrant medieval tent within the Castle Courtyard and select one of 68 wood-carved white horses—or one intricately carved chariot. Accented in soft pastel and jewel tones, each magnificent steed is posed in a fanciful leaping position. Once chosen, mount your charger and prepare yourself for a royal ride as if you were a part of King Arthur’s royal army.
Test Your Horsemanship
As a classic Disney tune echoes to the sounds of an old-fashioned fairground organ, parade up and down in a gentle counter-clockwise direction atop your majestic horse. Spin around and around and feel a cool breeze brush across your face as you view a menagerie of classic Fantasyland attractions in the not-too-far-off distance—including Sleeping Beauty Castle and Pinocchio’s Daring Journey .
Command your prancing horse as the prince or princess of your very own fairytale by day or embark on a journey at night, basking in the enchanting glow of 3,328 shimmering lights.
A Fairytale Come To Life
During your whimsical journey, relive the classic Disney animated film Sleeping Beauty through a series of 9 illustriously hand-painted vignettes on the inner rounding board above the horses.
