Get a First Look at King Arthur Carrousel’s Stunning Makeover!
Counting down the days until Disneyland theme park reopens on April 30th? Then we’ve got something to tide you over! King Arthur Carrousel has been the whirling center of Fantasyland since Disneyland first opened back in 1955. While the theme park has been shut down, Imagineering completed an extensive refurbishment of this fan favorite attraction.
When Disneyland’s gates reopen later this month, you’ll be blown away by this “brightened” version of the carrousel. The refurb includes 14k gold leaf accents, vibrant details and bold colors!
The work that went into this update is nothing short of astounding. For example, each steed was meticulously repainted and more than 30 colors were used. To top it all off, each horse is slightly different from one another. That makes finding your perfect mount extra special as you have 68 unique leaping horses to choose from!
Check out the video below where Imagineer Kim Irvine takes viewers through the magical updates!
