Today In Disney History ~ March 5th
King Arthur Carrousel is a carousel attraction located in Fantasyland at Disneyland in Anaheim, California. Originally built in 1875, the carousel operated at Sunnyside Beach Park in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, from 1922 onwards. The ride was later relocated to Disneyland, where it was refurbished and modified by Arrow Development, and opened with the park on July 17, 1955.
In preparation for Disneyland’s 50th anniversary celebration, the Happiest Homecoming on Earth, King Arthur Carrousel was closed for extensive renovations and reopened in February 2003. These renovations included an entirely rebuilt turntable platform, a new computerized operating console and system which halts the carousel each time at the same spot, removal of a row of four horses to accommodate a four-course-wide bench and wheelchair clamps with an access ramp for ADA compliance, which reduced the count of horses to 68. In January 2010, the stirrups of each outer-course horse were replaced to include additional lower loops, increasing accessibility.
