Prince Charming Regal Carousel is a Carousel located in Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, USA.


The ride was built in 1917 by Philadelphia Toboggan Company and was known as Liberty Carrousel when it opened in Belle Isle Park in Detroit, Michigan.[1]

In 1929, the ride was moved to Olympic Park in Irvington, New Jersey, USA where it operated until the park closed in 1965.[2] It then stood not operating until it was acquired by Disney in 1969.[3][4]

The ride opened with Magic Kingdom on October 1, 1971 and was named Cinderella's Golden Carrousel.[3] In June 2010, the ride was given its current name, Prince Charming Regal Carrousel.[5]
