    Carousel of the Sea refurb?

    I was at DCA recently and I noticed that the canopy over the Carousel on the pier was looking kinda shaby.

    do any of you know about this being replaced.... once the Midway Mania opens alot of people will be going through this area, and I was thinking it'd look 10X better if the current canopy were replaced with one simmillar to the one on DLP's version of the tea cups
    this


    or this

    I wouldn't be surprise. In preparation for Nemo, the whole seating area for Club Buzz/Tomorrowland Terrace was completely redone for the traffic flow issues that were sure to abound. And now with this Pirate's Lair at TSI, suddenly the cave opposite from BTMR got it's dose of TLC. So possibly, but not until after this summer at the very earliest.

    That's the problem with Paradise Pier. Attractions are waaaaay undervisited. People in this thread do not even know what attraction the OP was speaking of, let alone that it's proper name is King Triton's Carousel.

    Its does need some TLC but I think it should reamin with the same roof style it has now. This is actually a wonderful little carousel, that we have to ride on the Girls insistance every visit.

    It's actually imaginative and cute! It even had proper line theming with fountains everywhere. The downsides were; undervisiting and the back wall was just themed with the player and King Triton.

    But if a little snip snip is in the future, it's either buh-bye games or King Triton's Caurosel. Nice to see that a few Disney characters made it into attractions.

    i dont mind how the roof is and it would be fine by me if it was replaced with a similar looking roof or a copy of the same one. I would however liked to see a bit more themeing. They should take out the top mirrors that surround the middle of the carousel and put in pictures from the little mermaid movie, just like king arthurs carousel as pictures from sleeping beauty and replace the annoying surf/beach boys waltzing type music with a musical score from little mermaid and then it would have more draw than it does now.
