30 Days til Disneyland – King Arthur Carrousel!

The King Arthur Carrousel is located in Fantasyland at Disneyland Park, and is the subject of day 30 in our countdown to Disneyland series.  This carrousel, which is similar to the Prince Charming Regal Carrousel in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, was handcrafted by the Dentzel company in Philadelphia in 1922.  When Walt Disney purchased it, he purchased it from the Sunnyside Beach Park in Toronto, where it had many other types of animals besides horses.  Walt wanted everyone to ride a horse just like King Arthur, so he located other carrousel horses — and the giraffes, deer, and other animals were relocated — many of them to the Casey, Jr. Circus Train!

My wife loves to ride a good carrousel, so I’m sure we will stop to ride this one.  What do you think about it?  Please let me know in the comments, and thanks!
