Disney’s Newest ‘Cinderella Pony’ at Walt Disney World Resort

1 min


Disney just released their first photo of an adorable new addition to Cinderella’s royal family –  our newest “Cinderella Pony” named Lilly.

Lilly, named after Walt Disney’s wife, was born in March and became the first white Shetland pony ever born at the Tri-Circle-D Ranch at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground.   Her mother, “Lady” and father “Ferdinand” are Shetland Ponies, but not just any Shetland Ponies.   Both are Cinderella’s ponies that pull her iconic pumpkin coach for Disney’s Fairytale Weddings and parades at the Magic Kingdom Park.

When Lilly turns two, she’ll begin training to pull Cinderella’s magical coach and then could make her debut as part of the team a year later.  Until then, Lilly is currently making appearances in our show pasture near the barn at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground for a few hours each day.

A team of 35 ranch hands care for Lilly and 90 other horses and ponies that support our daily operation of carriage, wagon, pony and trail rides, along with special events that add that special sparkle across the Walt Disney World Resort.
