Overview of Prince Charming’s Regal Carrousel
As the name says, you get a carousel ride; however, as with most of Disney attractions, it’s so much more beautifully designed than the typical fair ride. This carousel was created in 1917, so it’s had a long life of use before being purchased and remodeled for the Magic Kingdom, making it the oldest attraction in the park.
Queue & boarding information for Prince Charming’s Regal Carrousel
The queue is outdoors and mostly shaded.
Wheelchair boarding info: To board this attraction, people in wheelchairs should go to the exit gate, which is at the right side of the entrance. Let a cast member know you wish to board. You must transfer from your wheelchair to one of the ride seats. This includes stepping about 6 inches up onto the carousel platform with nothing to hold onto, moving to a horse or stationary chariot, and getting up on it. You may want to have another member of your party go ahead of you to get the horse or chariot you’re planning to ride (other guests may rush in front of you and get there before you).
Details about the experience on Prince Charming’s Regal Carrousel
90 colorful horses go up and down as you go round and round. Each horse is uniquely designed and there are various sizes of horses. The larger horses are on the outside ring and they get smaller as you get closer to the center. The horses have a loose fabric seat belt. There’s a stationary chariot that has two rows that will seat four adults, made of hard wood with backs and some thin padding.
Remember that even though a horse may be comparatively low to the ground at the beginning, it will go up and down, so it may finish high up on the pole. You must be able to get on and off on your own, or with assistance from someone in your party. The carousel may stop in a different location than it started from, so you may be getting off in a different place than you boarded.
The ride is short, so although the lines get long, they move pretty quickly. Regardless, it’s a popular ride, so there can still be a long wait. This ride shuts down completely during the evening fireworks. It’s less crowded during parades and late in the evening.
