Legend has it that Walt Disney was inspired to include a carrousel in his park after taking his daughters to the merry-go-round at LA’s Griffith Park. The carrousel was built by Italian woodcarvers in 1917 and featured at Olympic Park in Maplewood, New Jersey. For trivia fans, it’s technically the oldest attraction in Fantasyland. It plays Disney tunes as it spins. When Disney acquired it, the company artists refurbished the 90 horses so that no two are exactly alike. There are eighteen hand-painted scenes that tell the story of Cinderella on the wooden canopy that covers this attraction.
Guests must be able to transfer from their chairs in order to ride.
