April 8, 2008 – Disney Legend Julie Andrews is Honored with Carousel Horse at Disneyland
“I’ve never lost touch and never lost my feeling of family with Disney, and I am so proud to be a cast member.”
On April 8, 2008, actress, Disney Legend, and 50th anniversary ambassador of Disneyland Julie Andrews was honored with a special carousel horse on King Arthur’s Carousel. The lead horse, named Jingles, was repainted with a more ornate design, honoring Andrews’ more than 40 years of dedication to the Walt Disney Company, including a saddle featuring her initials, images depicting her famous role as British nanny Mary Poppins, along with the number 50 to represent the park’s 50th anniversary, for which she was the ambassador and made an honorary cast member. On hand to present the horse was Imagineer and fellow Disney Legend Marty Sklar.
