Sneak Peek of Disney’s Updated King Arthur Carrousel

One of the most beloved and nostalgic attractions at Disneyland is the King Arthur Carrousel which was part of the park’s opening day in 1955. Even though Disneyland has been closed for over a year now due to COVID-19, Disney Imagineers haven’t stop planning, imagining, and refurbishing attractions.


We previously shared the Haunted Mansion has new enhancements. Now, you can expect a refreshing look for King Arthur Carrousel when Disneyland reopens April 30. The brightened version of the carrousel is sparkling with 14k gold leaf accents, vibrant details and bold colors.

As shared by Disney: “Each steed was hand repainted, and more than 30 colors were used. With each horse slightly different from one another, riders both young and young at heart can look forward to finding their perfect mount among the 68 leaping horses. In the video below, Imagineer Kim Irvine describes the magical updates to this classic attraction.”

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
