The illustration for the Disney Carnival puzzle is packed full of classic Disney characters marching besides and standing on top of a parade float decorated as a castle. Working on this puzzle reminded me of the bright and colorful parades at Disneyland in Anaheim, California.
Our sorting strategy, in no particular order, was focused on the sky, castle, border, and grass fields. All the remaining unsorted pieces were Disney characters and the float. When solving for a particular character, we would find the character’s individual pieces. I focused on the Seven Dwarfs, Pinocchio, Lady and the Tramp, and the castle float. My sister worked on Winnie the Pooh, Alice, Mickey, Minnie, Daisy, and Donald.
The interlocking for Ravensburger puzzle is alright. For example, when moving assembled section that requires lifting them off the table, there was a good chance that the assembled pieces could come apart during the move. JaCaRou puzzles have great interlocking.
The puzzle took four of us almost three hours (2:49:10) to complete, which is on the fast side for a one thousand piece puzzle. In comparison, our last 750 piece puzzle, Magic Castle, took us roughly the same amount of time (2:46:17) to complete. Overall, a fun and enjoyable puzzle to solve with your friends and family as it promotes collaboration. If you like classic Disney characters, then you will enjoy this puzzle. Overall, I enjoyed Carnival, because it was fun to build many of the classic Disney characters. My favorite part of the puzzle was the Seven Dwarfs. However, the hardest part for me was the parade float, because pieces for the float looked similar to each other.
