    Disneyland dedicated a horse on it's King Arthur Carousel to Julie Andrews on her visit today.

    Thousands of Disneyland park guests gathered around King Arthur's Carousel on Tuesday morning to watch Disney's top brass dedicate a special carousel horse to legendary performer Julie Andrews.
    The gesture recognizes Andrews' service as the theme park's ambassador during its 50th anniversary, as well as her contributions to the company over the past 44 years.
    The carousel horse is decorated with emblems and logos that recall some of Andrews' most well-known roles. Its name is 'Jingles.'
    Andrews achieved icon status after the 1964 debut of Mary Poppins, in which she played the title role. In the movie, she rode cartoon carousel horses and used one to win a horse race.
    On Tuesday, Andrews told the gathering of resort officials and theme park employees: "I hope this horse is here for a long time."
