    Sleeping Beauty Castle Walkthrough Attachment

    I was noticing that on the castle in Disneyland just left of the main middle structure that there is an attachment off the side, I believe that just inside is the castle walkthrough just before you see Maleficent summoning her demons, but when I looked at the classic picture of Walt walking through the castle, I saw it was not there. Was this added as part of the walkthrough construction? To help me can someone give me a working picture of the walkthrough layout? Thank You!

    I believe that would be one of the stairways..Since the castle walkthrough opened a couple of years after the opening, it probably was an addon. The only reason why It would be there before the walk-through was open was to serve as a maintenance stairway. So why didn't they build it there in the first place? I believe that after the castle was built, Walt Wanted something to put in all the spare space in the castle, so there probably wasn't any plans in the design of the castle to have a walk-through.

    I believe that's the stairway coming down from the Coridoor of Goons that is quite small. Trumpeters were up on the front of the castle on opening day, and I would guess they would have used the first stairway you climb when you enter the castle and the most likely dead-ended at the top. When the walkthrough was put in, my guess is that they needed a second staircase to go down and added on.

    Closest to that is the virtual walkthrough on the new Sleeping Beauty DVD.

    Google recently acquired a bunch of Life Magazine photos.
    Google: "Disneyland source:life"
    This one shows that you could see right through the windows of the castle.
    Definitely before the walk-through.
