    Exclamation Sleeping Beauty Castle Walkthrough - did this exist?

    I was looking at Daveland's Disneyland images, and went to the Sleeping Beauty Castle page. As I scrolled down, I read something that I'd never heard of before:

    Jay remembers The Sleeping Beauty Diorama
    “My recollection of the Sleeping Beauty Diorama goes back to my 1st visit when I believe it required either an A or B ticket. Later on my parents bought the unlimited ride package where my brother and I wore red wrist bands. I remember entering on the right side of the building coming from Main Street. Upon entering, it had a stone-like appearance on the floor and walls lit by a soft greenish light. The walls were lined with pictures of the Sleeping Beauty story as one climbed the stairs. Once at the top of the stairs, there was Sleeping beauty lying under a glass enclosed casing. If you looked closely, you could see her chest move as if she were breathing. Then as you passed by, you’d walk down another set of stairs with more pictures of the story, and you came out on the left side of the castle.”

    Now, I've always known and heard about the original artwork that resided in the original walkthrough. But I've never heard anyone mention a physical Aurora asleep under a glass casing, looking like she was breathing, no less!

    I was born in 1987, so obviously I can't remember anything like this.

    Could somebody here please shed some light on this? I'm very curious!

    Thanks!

    I am probably wrong but I do seem to remember an Aurora 'sleeping' under the glass but I don't remember her moving.

    No, I remember a lovely flat cut-out painting of Aurora sleeping in a small dimensional window setting -- the tableaux we have seen from the View-Master packet slide - - executed by Anderson/Coats, and inspired by the Earle painting (both pics posted in another thread).

    all I remember are just the dolls in the dioramas(like the owl in the cloak dancing with Aurora) and the music they played in the castle
    but not a moving diorama.

    Correct.
    I believe daveland might be confusing Sleeping Beauty with Snow White in his memory. Snow White did indeed have a glass coffin in the story while Sleeping Beauty never did (at least, not in the Disney version).
