King Triton's Carousel of the Sea was a carousel at Disney California Adventure at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California. The attraction's name came from King Triton, Ariel's father from The Little Mermaid. Unlike the horse arrangement on the King Arthur Carousel at Disneyland, King Triton's Carousel was ocean-themed and used multi-colored sea creatures like seahorses, flying fish, dolphins, sea lions, sea otters, whales, and garibaldi.

King Triton's Carousel closed on March 5, 2018. It will be re-themed to Jessie's Critter Carousel, inspired by Disney·Pixar's Toy Story 2, scheduled to open in 2019.[1]
