ORWEN: My sisters and I were there to see both the Flights of Fantasy parade AND the re-opening ceremony for the new Fantasyland. It was such a more magical time back then.
ORWEN: And when Maleficent showed up to crash the event, it took everyone's breath away. She came up out of the castle moat and towered next to the castle in that dramatic way of hers. But Prince Phillip soon came out on his horse, Samson, and drew his sword of truth--frightening Maleficent away. Soon afterwards, Princess Aurora came across the drawbridge to join her man.
ORDDU: Later in the day, Phillip & Aurora were seen standing on the balcony at the rear of the castle--waving at guests in the courtyard below.
ORWEN: And the Sword in the Stone ceremony was performed for the first time that day!! Such medieval splendor it was!!
