The magical sword in the stone sits right in front of the carousel and very near the back of Cinderella’s castle. On my first trip to the most magical place on earth, I saw a little boy pull the sword up out of the stone one night. He had a crowd around him, and they made a proclamation about something and he was the prince for the moment. The next time I went to WDW, I tried my hand at pulling out that sword. I jokingly went over to it after my children had all given it a good try. I pulled it up and it resisted, but it came out of the stone. There was no one to make a proclamation. I had to yell at my dad to take a picture. We were all in shock. A little while later, my husband came over to see us give it another try. Again, all the children tried and it didn’t budge. I tried once more, knowing that there was no way it would happen again. To my complete and utter shock–I pulled it up again!
Now, the next time you’re in Disney World try to pull that sword out. There are a few things to know:
The sword does resist. It feels heavy as you pull it up.
It doesn’t come out all of the way.
Take a picture quickly because the sword will go back into the stone after a short while.
Try and try again. You just never know when you’ll get lucky!
Here’s the picture my dad took of me. It’s an awful one, but I’m glad I got photo proof because no one ever believes me.
