One of the beautiful Disneyland carrousel horses..... by 

View larger….
King Arthur Carrousel is a ride in Fantasyland at Disneyland.
Walt Disney wanted to recreate the Griffith Park carrousel. Therefore, a Dentzel park model carousel which had operated since 1932 at Sunnyside Amusement Park in Toronto, Ontario was taken from Sunnyside and moved to Disneyland in 1954. The ride was originally a Dentzel Menagerie Carrousel, consisting three rows of horses and animals on a 22 meter diameter platform. The attraction was built by William Dentzel. The ride was refurbished, and turned into a 4 row unit, (thus increasing ride capacity) by adding additional horses that came from various other carrousels from around North America.
