Disney Characters Surprise Disneyland Guests On King Arthur Carousel


Have you ever during the day just imagined that your were at a Disney park and were on your favorite ride? Have you ever thought about riding along with some of your favorite Disney characters? Well a few guests at Disneyland were just given the opportunity to experience that.

Seemingly out of the blue a number of Disney characters appeared on the King Arthur Carousel to the surprise of guests and apparently went for a ride with the few people who were on there.

The lineup included the Evil Queen from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Flynn Rider from Tangled, Ariel from The Little Mermaid, Aurora from Sleeping Beauty and Elena from Elena of Avalor.

TikTok User @karen_inwonderland was able to shoot a quick video of the unique experience on her phone as she was exiting the Snow White’s Enchanted Wish.

This was quite the unexpected surprise to many guests. Something like this doesn’t happen often, unless it’s an advertisement for the parks. Imagine if something like this happened more often? Imagine getting onto Pirates of the Caribbean with Jack Sparrow? Or spinning in the Mad Tea Party with Alice? Or a trip through the Hundred Acre Wood with Pooh Bear?

With the return of character meet and greets at the parks and other character interactions this was definitely a welcome back to the days when you would see characters regularly walking around the park. Ever since COVID hit many families have traveled to the parks without being able to snap a photo with their favorite characters. But not that’s all behind us (at least for now).

What do you think of this surprise ride with Disney characters? Be sure to be on the lookout on your next visit, because someone you wouldn’t expect might be sitting just beside you.
