The Castle turret, is a little less lost already.
As Disneyland announced the Princess Faire project at Carnation Gardens, I went taking a good look around and noticed a part of the castle lost deep in the bushes, which I wrote about a few months ago; a turret basically unseen for more than 50 years, despite millions of people looking right at it all the time. Since then construction has begun in the area, and I've gleaned a little more about the origins of the far-west turret, from a few old photos on the web (stuff from the park, daveland, etc.). It was not there at opening in 1955! Both sides of the castle grew outwards within the first few years. The addtion of Carnation Gardens probably necessitated extending this western side of the castle, possibly along with adding the Tinker Bell Toy Shop circa 1956/57. (The east side was, of-course updated to include Snow White grotto in 1961.)
It is already evident that the new Princess meetNgreet will show off this part of the castle for the first time in decades, as the area is already partially cleared of foliage. The little lost turret is already coming into view. Sleeping Beauty indeed.
