A different set of horses has been roped off for floor work on Prince Charming Regal Carrousel in Magic Kingdom, and many of the decorative panels in the ride’s central column have been removed.

Prince Charming Regal Carrousel

Crews have been roping off ten horses — two rows of five — at a time. The floor beneath these horses is being cleaned and stained. Half of the floor under the currently unavailable horses is its final dark brown, while the other half has a natural wood color.

The horses at the ends of the rows are covered in tarps to protect them from work happening on the entablature above. The ride remains open during the refurbishment.

The center column of the carousel features mirrors and large red panels featuring a diamond pattern.

All but one of the diamond-pattern panels have been removed or painted over for a fresh start. The mirrors and lights around them are still in place.

The empty spaces on the Prince Charming Regal Carrousel are currently beige.

Some elements have also been removed from the columns between each panel. These curved columns usually feature light purple backgrounds and gold details.

The entablature above the horses is being repainted. During the work, some sections are covered with a themed tarp.

Some sections have been stripped of all color but gold. The relief sculptures feature angelic figures with flags and eagles, leftover from when the attraction was The Liberty Carousel over 100 years ago. These friezes are usually painted pink, purple, and blue.

The figures between the images of the Fairy Godmother and Cinderella’s horses have been repainted. There is still work left to be done along the sculpture’s edges.

Other sections have significantly more paintwork done. The images from “Cinderella,” added when The Walt Disney Company acquired the carousel in the 1960s, are framed in gold foil.
