DDW Pic 641. Prince Charming Regal Carrousel
Prince Charming Regal Carrousel
Exactly three years ago today, on June 1st, 2010, Cinderella's Golden Carrousel became Prince Charming Regal Carrousel. There wasn't much explanation as to why this was done, and nothing about the attraction changed besides the name. However, New Fantasyland was on the horizon, which features princesses Belle and Ariel. The general consensus is that Disney was trying to make the area seem a little more "boy friendly" by changing the name of the classic merry-go-round. It was also around that time that they announced the addition of the Seven Dwarf's Mine Train, which will be the final attraction to open in New Fantasyland. I took this shot of the carrousel a few weeks ago.
