Prince Charming Regal Carrousel at Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World is scheduled to close for a few weeks for refurbishment. The attraction is expected to close from April 24th through May 18th. It is expected to re-open to guests on May 19th. There is no word yet on any specific refurbishments that are expected for the attraction.
When Walt Disney created Disneyland in California, he was insistent that there had to be a carousel at the center of the park. Then when Magic Kingdom was built, there was the same expectation. Walt didn’t get to see Magic Kingdom finished, but his brother, Roy, ensured that the park met most of Walt’s visions. It is even said that the carousel was completely built and in place, and Roy made the teams move it 6 inches so that it was more perfectly aligned behind Cinderella Castle!
We will keep you posted if we learn of any changes coming with this refurbishment.
