Description And Comments
A merry-go-round to be sure, but certainly one of the most elaborate and beautiful you will ever see, especially when lit at night. For the 50th anniversary in 2005, a special horse was added in tribute to Julie Andrews and her iconic role in Mary Poppins. She is a white "A" horse, with bells all over, hence her name, "Jingles." To find her, she is the horse closest to the handicapped ramp.
To clarify, the horses on Carrousel are graded based on their location, so the best horses are on the outside, those being the "A" horses. The ranking then progresses inward typically till "D" or "E".
- Open for Early Entry.
Unless there are small children in your party, we suggest you appreciate this ride from the sidelines. If your children want to ride, try to get them on before 11:30 a.m. or after 5 p.m. While nice to look at, the carousel loads and unloads very slowly.
This chart shows you roughly how long you'll wait for King Arthur Carrousel when you visit on a day with a given Disneyland Crowd Level. The blue bars represent the average "peak" wait time (that is, how long the line will at its busiest). The bottom and top black lines represent the range of peak wait times to expect (for you fellow nerds out there: it's the 5th percentile and 95th percentile of peak wait times). Please note that these are estimates, and for a better forecast for your travel dates, see King Arthur Carrousel Wait Times.
A showpiece carousel; adults enjoy the beauty and nostalgia of this ride.
