Painting Nears Completion on Prince Charming Regal Carrousel in Magic Kingdom

Images have been installed on the entablature and the painting of the friezes is nearly complete, as the Prince Charming Regal Carrousel refurbishment continues.

Painting is progressing nicely on the entablature at Prince Charming Regal Carrousel. In the photo above, the left angel has yet to have her dress painted. Based on how other angels in the entablature look, her dress should be painted blue before the completion of the refurbishment.

Even with some dresses unpainted, there has been significant work done since our last update. When we last provided a construction update, much of the entablature was beige, images were missing from their golden frames, and some sections were even covered by colorful tarps.

Images depicting scenes from Cinderella now fill every gold frame on the entablature. The photo of Prince Charming and Cinderella running across the red-carpeted stairs was completely missing just last month.

Additionally, the very top of the entablature has been painted blue and red in some parts. Gold touches have been added to the design right beneath this area. Red paint has been added to the area beneath the angels. The above photo depicts what the nearly finished entablature will look like. This nearly complete section lies to the left of an area that is missing large sections of paint.

The painting of Cinderella holding up her pink dress was also missing in our last update. The angels between that image and the one of Lady Tremaine, Anastasia, and Drizella have been painted. In our last update, the left angel’s dress was beige, while the right angel was completely devoid of paint. The section between the angels has also been painted blue and pink.

Aside from the entablature, the refurbishment for the rest of the attraction seems complete. The floor has been completely installed and none of the horses were roped off on our recent visit. With all the progress made, it seems the refurbishment will reach its official completion soon.
