After seven long years the Sleeping Beauty Castle Walkthrough reopens! FindingMickey.com was at the park to attend the grand reopening. The line was a bit long, so we waited a few hours after opening to stand in line. I apologize there are only a few pictures because my P&S camera is very bad at low light photography (maybe Santa will bring me a new camera for Christmas).
Pretty view from the queue!
About 15-20 mins later we reach the entrance!
Once inside the line was backed-up. We head up a flight of stairs to the main chamber.
The dioramas I remember from my childhood have been replaced with 3-D scenes transformed by special lighting effects and sound!
Along the way are illustrated story books telling the story of Sleeping Beauty, a throwback from the original walkthough.
A short video of a scene featuring the evil Maleficent!
