Tiggerific Trivia Tuesday Blog Hop

Hi Everyone-

It's Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia Time!  It's co-hosted by 4 awesome blogs, so be sure to check them all out: today I'm linking to Magical Mouse Schoolhouse, but be sure check out Heidi's Head, Disney Babies Blog and My Dreams of Disney.  You can link up on any one of these amazing blogs!

Did you know that the Prince Charming Regal Carousel is the oldest attraction in Disney World? It was originally crafted in 1917 and was called the Liberty Carousel.  It started it's life in the Palace Garden Amusement Park in Detroit, Michigan and was then moved to Mapelwood Olympic Park in New Jersey in 1928.  It stayed in Jersey until Disney bought it in 1967 and had it totally refurbished (hand painting each horse!)  There are 90 horses on the ride and as of 2011 there are still 72 horses that date back to the original 1917 craftsmen!

Here are a few fun pictures of the Tremaines Riding the Carousel with some unsuspecting young guests just after the park opened this day!

This fun fact comes from Little-Known Facts about Well-Known Places: Walt Disney World by Laurie Flannery.

Thanks for joining the hop.  Be sure to check out all the other fun trivia!

  1. I was just reading this very information about the Carrousel in another book. Did you know that it's actually spelled Carrousel (with 2 r's) as a nod to the European spelling? Stroll through the park to Tomorrowland, and the Carousel of Progress is spelling the American way. :) Just a bit more to add to your trivia for today. Thanks for linking up.

  2. Fascinating trivia! I always enjoy a ride on the Carrousel or Carousel.

  3. I love the Carousel! I love to just look at it and watch it go around. One of my favorite pieces in Fantasyland. And thanks for adding that tidbit about the spelling, Heidi!
