    Sleeping Beauty Castle- Enough Room for a Ride

    I was thinking about this the other day and was wondering- is there enough room in Sleeping Beauty Castle for a dark ride based on the movie? That would be cool if there was. But they probably wouldn't put one in for the same reason they closed the walk-through. Does anyone know the answer? Thanks!

    No. There is enough room for a princess meet-and-greet, however, which I always thought would be a nice place for Aurora.


    The hallways are far too narrow for a ride and a lot of the space in the castle is taken up already by the top shops on either side of it.

    Thanks, I thought there probably wasn't, but was just checking.

    What I always wanted to see happen was both Peter Pan and Mr. Toad get their own show buildings (seeing as both attractions need updating) and have the Sleeping Beauty que start with the walk-through, lead down into the old villians shop (I believe it's the family crest shop now), and use the entire Toad/Peter Pan building for the new ride.

    I really wish they would have had the walk thru open for the
    50th. That was definitely a mistake! Hopefully it will be place
    on the schedule to re-open.... and I would love to see them
    add a dragon, or at least some special effects to make it appear
    that a dragon is present!

    sounds interesting, but where would Mr. Toad and Peter Pan go?

    That room was there from the start. It was intended to be an apartment for Walt and his family. It was later used by the telephone operators and then later as storage space.

    Re: Sleeping Beauty Castle- Enough Room for a Ride

    ORWEN: Somehow, I just don't think it's right for ANY princess to have ride vehicles going through her castle, anyway! I mean, how's she supposed to ever get any sleep if she has to worry about getting run over by a car in the middle of the night whenever she gets up to use the royal throne?

    ORDDU: Of course--if you listen to all the many news reports these days--it seems to actually be the latest fad to crash your car into somebody's home. We hear of such things all the time. If I remember correctly, there was one of those fiendish metal contraptions--which the rest of you call cars--that ended up on the porch roof of someone's home recently.

    ORWEN: Cars and other vehicles really should stay outside of a person's home where they belong. However, a walk-thru attraction for a princess's castle is much more dignified--

    ORDDU: --as long as you don't walk in on her at the wrong moment, of course. Certain towers should be off limits, don't you think?

    The castle is closed because of corrosion. AKA Termite damage. You might not have realized that Disney does not use any kind of insecticides on their premises, at all. That is why you see cats, mice, and rodents. They even have a code name for a dead mouse which is "Sleeping Mickey." Anyways, from what I was always told, termite damage has prevented the castle from having that walkway because of the damage to the castle. Before, I always thought 9/11 caused it to be closed, but in reality the Castle is falling apart. I mean, it is pretty old...

    Huh. I always thought that's be interesting. They make it the main site in Disneyland but inside it's just a princess shop.

    Re: Sleeping Beauty Castle- Enough Room for a Ride

    My educated guess was the area was too dangerous to use because of the fireworks launching sites above the castle for various reasons.

    I thought that the castle also used to be a walk through but was later changed.
