Since February 2018 Prince Charming’s Regal Carousel has been under refurbishment and we were happy to announce it has since re-opened. There is still one crucial detail missing from the front of the iconic attraction. The Sword in the Stone, along with its Anvil housing, is still missing!
Along with changes to the area near the carousel, that came with the refurbishment, the anvil and sword were removed to be maintenance before their return to the attraction area. In its place, a similarly styled piece of “stone” has been put into the rock base until the anvil and swords reappearance, which will hopefully be soon.
When the Sword is in its proper place guests would get the chance to participate in the Sword in the Stone Ceremony. Two cast members dressed as citizens of fantasyland, share the beloved and classic tale of The Sword in the Stone. After the story is shared they choose a few lucky guests to try their luck then show their strength and attempt to remove the Sword from the Stone. In a magical moment for a special guest, the sword lifts slightly out of the anvil as the crowd cheers for the new royal guest specially chosen by the sword.
“Whoso pulleth out this sword of this stone and anvil is rightwise king born of England.” -The Sword in The Stone
There has been no word yet on when the sword will reappear. When it does, we will be here to share the news with you. Until then keep a look out for the rightful King, or Queen, of England.
