In our last update, two rows of 10 horses were roped off. Those horses are available again but a different 10 are now unavailable. Ropes are wrapped around the rows. Tarps are over the horses on the edges to keep them protected from paint work above.

The scrim doesn’t feature the images from “Cinderella” that are on the real canopy, instead leaving those spots gray. This is so the same scrim can be used on different sections of the canopy.

On the left side of the scrim, some sections of the canopy have been stripped of paint, leaving them a light tan color. The “Cinderella” images, gold, and lights remain.

Prince Charming Regal Carrousel is located in Fantasyland directly behind Cinderella Castle. It was built by The Philadelphia Toboggan Company in 1917 and was originally known as The Liberty Carousel. Disney purchased it in 1967 and updated it with “Cinderella” details. It opened with Magic Kingdom in 1971 as Cinderella’s Golden Carousel. It was renamed in 2010.
