Presentation of the attraction

Lancelot’s Carousel is a charming attraction located in Fantasyland at Disneyland Paris. Inspired by the medieval tradition of the knight errant, this carousel takes visitors on an enchanted ride that evokes the atmosphere of Arthurian legends.

Visitors board richly carved and painted wooden horses (exterior only), which hop on and off to the rhythm of traditional carousel music.

Lancelot’s Carrousel is magnificently ornate, with gilding and murals that tell the stories of the knights of the Round Table. As it slowly turns, the carousel offers panoramic views of Sleeping Beauty’s castle and the rest of Fantasyland.
