The New Tri-Circle-D Ranch Has Just Been Unveiled at Walt Disney World
As part of Disney’s phased reopening plan for Walt Disney World, guests will be welcomed back to the campground at Fort Wilderness Resort this week where they’ve just unveiled the new and improved Tri-Circle-D Ranch.
Disney’s animal care team managed to capture some awesome images of this important milestone which we here at MickeyBlog are happy to pass on to you!
For those unfamiliar, the Tr-Circle-D Ranch is a bit of a Walt Disney World hidden treasure. Here you’ll find “The Happiest Horses on Earth” as it was part of Walt’s vision to bring horses to the Magic Kingdom and Disneyland theme parks. The Tri-Circle-D Ranch was set up before Walt Disney World opened and it is just as important today!
The new facility features a beautifully enhanced new barn with plenty of space for play-time pony rides and more! The new stable features bigger stalls for the horses as well as 10 additional stalls each equipped with automatic water stations.
The barn is double the size of the previous barn and includes two tack rooms, a wedding harness room (showcasing tack for Cinderella’s ponies) and the return of the museum dedicated to Walt’s love of horses.
In addition to the horses, another iconic piece of Disney history has been moved to its new home – the 1907 Dragon Calliope. Walt Disney purchased this horse-drawn musical wagon for Disneyland back in the 1950s and it’s now on display at Fort Wilderness for all to view!

And we can’t think of a better way to celebrate this new facility than by share news about another new arrival. Violet a pony foal born right here in the new stable is already enjoying her independence as she plays in the new pastures and enjoys running around with her mom Elsa.
The new and improved ranch is a quick trot away from its original location just near the bus loop by Pioneer Hall.
