Main Street Horses at Magic Kingdom

It’s not uncommon to see a couple of horses out on Main Street, U.S.A., when you first enter the Magic Kingdom. In fact, it’s so common that Disney lists the Main Street Horses as an attraction on its website.

Often, you’ll see a horse pulling the Main Street Trolley through Town Square. Guests can ride the trolley when it’s not otherwise used.

Of course, sometimes, performers ride the trolley up and down the street, like the Dapper Dans. They’ll sing a tune as they pass by.

In addition, to the Main Street Trolley, you might see horses in a parade. For instance, during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, Cinderella’s ponies pull her carriage in the holiday parade.

In the past, we’ve even seen a few characters riding horses down Main Street.

A few years ago, Merida rode a horse in one of the pop-up cavalcades.

As for the Main Street Trolley, we don’t make a special effort to experience this type of ride. However, if we happen upon them, we always hop on and take advantage of the opportunity.

It’s doubtful that anyone will regret taking a few minutes of their day to ride up Main Street in a horse-drawn trolley. Being able to ride the trolley is such a unique experience.

Hopefully, you’ll see some horses out and about at Magic Kingdom on your next visit! Have you ever seen any of the horses on Main Street, U.S.A.?


  1. Completely random question – but do you know where the horses that work in Magic Kingdom are stabled? And are they kept far enough away from the Magic Kingdom so they aren’t bothered by the nightly fireworks? Thanks!
