Prince Charming Regal Carrousel at Walt Disney World Scheduled for Refurbishment

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.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
