Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia ~ Who Built Prince Charming Regal Carousel?

Magical Mouse Schoolhouse Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia Did you know there is a new (well, a couple of weeks ago new) blog hop?  It is called the Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia.  You share a piece of Disney trivia that you think everyone would be interested in knowing, and learn more trivia by reading what everyone else had to share.  Since there is such a significant amount of Disney trivia out there, and I am indecisive, I decided to pull my piece of trivia from one of my favorite apps: Walt Disney World Fun Facts.  This is a free app I downloaded and open whenever I have a few moments, such as when I am waiting at the bus stop for the kids or just have a few spare moments to read.  Each week I have decided that I will chose my trivia from this app - whichever fact pops up when I open it and select a park, that is the one I will share.  Today's fact just happens to be from my girls' most favorite attraction in the Magic Kingdom.  We experience the Prince Charming Regal Carousel at least 8-10 times per trip.



Ok, my mom loves it too, and Hayley loves when she gets the horse next to Grammie!




Prince Charming Regal Carrousel was built by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company in 1977.

When I searched for this company on Wikipedia, I discovered that this company is one of the "oldest existing roller coaster manufacturing companies in the world."  Their oldest carousel, still in use, was built in 1906 and currently resides in Colorado.

In my best Flynn Rider impersonation: Who knew, right?  (Sorry, had to throw that in there, my kids say it all the time!)

Make sure you head over to Magical Mouse Schoolhouse to see what trivia has already been shared.  Have a favorite fact you think everyone should know? Join in the fun!

The carousel really is beautiful, and it is just as beautiful at night all lit up as it is during the day!
