Met with some incredible Cast Members who are busy getting the NEW barn at Tri-Circle-D Ranch ready to welcome guests on Monday. Always love seeing our Cast take such great care of our horses, including our newest addition—a baby foal named “Violet”—who was born here a couple weeks ago. Nice also to see the horses escort the Dragon Calliope to its new home today. This iconic piece of Disney heritage has a rich history at both @Disneyland and WDW. Know it’s a guest favorite! #WaltDisneyWorld #FortWilderess #TriCircleDRanch #DisneyMagicMoments #DisneyCastLife
Jeff Vahle visited the new horse barn prior to its planned opening to the public as well as greeting the beautiful new foal! A ceremony was held to transport the Dragon Calliope, a horse-drawn musical instrument originally purchased by Walt Disney, to its new home at the ranch’s museum. The move marked the final touch to complete the new facility in preparation for its June 2020 opening.
Tri-Circle-D Ranch is home to all of the Disney horses, including Cinderella’s carriage team. Alongside a host of many other breeds trained for a number of Disney job roles such as trail rides or sleigh driving.
Disney’s Fort Wildnerness Resort & Campground is scheduled to reopen on June 22, 2020. Plan your trip, and you might get a glimpse of sweet Violet.
