|Sword in the Stone|
This area in front of the Carrousel has been the home to the "Sword in the Stone" for many years. However, it has been a while since an interactive show has been performed here. In years past, Merlin the Magician would invite guests to come up and attempt to remove the sword from the stone. Just a few months ago, there was a whole new set of characters introduced along with New Fantasyland. These new characters ask guests to try the nearly impossible task of sword removal. Of course they start with big and strong men who inevitably fail. It usually ends up being a young child who has success and gets a big cheer from the crowd.
