    Absolutely not! There is a big difference between seeing something in person and seeing a video of it.

    This, as has been stated in this thread and in others by dozens of folks, including myself, is not true. That is not why they closed it.

    "The big irony with the SB walk-thru is that by the time Eyvind Earle's art began to be truly appreciated, they had replaced his work in the walk-thru with horrible barbie-doll crap. The original Ken Anderson/Eyvind Earle walk-thru would probably be better reviewed and appreciated today than at any time since it was new. In hindsight, I count my memories of that original version as precious, but like most others I didn't really appreciate it at the time. "

    Around what year did that transition take place. I dont remember anything but the Barbie Doll Version, and I am 35. Just curious

    Late 1960s, early 1970s, if my memory serves...

    The remodel took place in 1977, according to Yesterland.

    There is a full video of the barbie-doll version out there. Check youtube.

    For the original, people are always clambering for photos but there seems to be next to nothing. There's a shot of Aurora sleeping on her bed in old Fantasyland Viewmaster sets, and it's really nice, and I wish someone would scan it online, but other than that, I've never seen a single photo.

    There you go! The original actually was expanded in 1968 to include additional scenes. I guess the original scenes were removed after that to make way for the new dioramas, which were also great.

    Re: Sleeping Beauty Castle Walkthrough???

    yeah I grew up with the barbie doll one...and I know it wasn't that great, but I loved it as a kid. Sleeping Beauty was and still is my very favorite Disney Classic...don't know why, but it is...But I would absolutely LOOOOOVE to see it revamped with the original work...the barbies can go, I'm 100% ok with that...a new walkthrough inspired by the very original sounds amazing to me...I remember reading that there was a lot more of Maleficent...which happens to be my favorite villain!!! But yeah I would be ecstatic to see it back but with new displays....Let's hope!!!

    Re: Sleeping Beauty Castle Walkthrough???

    Sleeping Beauty has an important anniversary coming up. The movie opened in 1959, so it's going to be celebrating it's 50th anniversary next year.

    I believe reading somewhere that Disney plans to celebrate this anniversary at the park. Think of the Snow White anniversary, but wayyyy bigger-potentially an exhibit in Plaza Pavilion I think it said.

    But I think, additionally, it would make a heck of a lot of sense to bring back the walkthrough for this event.

    Yes, it is grandfathered. Time is not an issue, it's a question of what you do with the area later on. The PeopleMover tracks are no longer grandfathered because a different attraction was opened in the same area after the time allowance. Because the walkthrough has never been a different attraction, it still falls under the grandfather clause.

    The ADA compliance was not required for the subs-Disney was just being guest-friendly.

    The "Barbie doll one," didn't actually use Barbie dolls... I thought it was wonderful though. The best thing about it was that it was really kid friendly. Kids really liked this version of the walk through. It appealed to them, and made it seem like a storybook of Sleeping Beauty was coming alive in 3D. It was truly a unique experience. I would be happy to have it back in any form that stays true to the original concept, telling the story of Sleeping Beauty. The walkthrough was one of my favorite attractions at Disneyland, next to the Mansion. If they bring it back, they will be making an awful lot of people really happy.

    I was a mid-teen when the changes occurred. Even thought I was not the target audience of that attraction it was easy to tell that the changes were crap compared to the original.

    I grew up with the "barbie doll one" and I just loved it. Not just because I liked dolls, but because I thought Maleficent would pop up any time. I think it would be great to have the original paintings as well as some 3d scenes. just think of a fully animated Dragon with flames projecting on the glass. mmm fun

    I have a ton of photos from the attraction in one of the boxes around here. I used to have a Disneyland site with walkthrus of many of the attractions, and took photographs for all of them (even though I never got around to posting the text portions).

    I'll see if I can locate the picts one of these days.

    Are you saying you have pix of the original, pre-1977 walk-thru? You would make a lot of people extremely happy if you could get those online, friend.

    If not, please post your pictures of the walk through anyway. There is a lack of photographic material of this attraction on the Internet, and sharing your pictures would be a great thing to do!
