    Re: Sleeping Beauty Walk Through

    Since I was conceived in that walkthrough, I'd have to agree with Werner on this.

The doors never reopened to guests.

    I do think there's a legitimate security issue with Sleeping Beauty Walkthrough. And by "security" I mean a broad, mundane definition of security, not necessarily terrorism. During its final years, Sleeping Beauty Walkthrough had an unsupervised entrance and exit. Anyone could go in and hide in the nooks and crannies. Ideally, the attraction would have been carefully supervised at all times to assure the safety of guests. I'm sure that Security checked on the attraction regularly (at least I hope so).

    The big difference with WDW is that the large, open restaurant in Cinderella Castle is constantly full of cast members and guests. It's completely different than the dark, narrow, twisty, hidden walkthrough in Disneyland.
    You make a great point, Werner. Just to clarify, I put the 9/11 phrase in quotes as it wasn't gospel, but something I heard from several friends I have who worked at the park at the time. It might have been speculation on their side, but at the time I got that information from people in different departments.

    It would be very easy to just install security cameras, wouldn't it?

    Are you being serious? Haha I think that's one I haven't heard yet. I've been told that about a lot of rides, but this has always been left out.

    OFF TOPIC...Cousin, are you sure it wasn't Injun Joe's Cave?
    (Which may soon be a part of Yesterland too if it's not already?)

    It was more than a "ride", it was truly an "Attraction".

    And don't even get started on "Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln." Just don't go there.

    ADA compliance has ZERO to do with closing ANY attraction
    opened prior to the inception of that act. Same for the subs,
    same for the Skyway. Peoplemover would still be in the same
    category, except, that it was converted to Rocket Rods ~ a
    diffent type of ride.

    Re: Sleeping Beauty Walk Through

    I really miss this attraction. ;_; It was a nice way to kill time or spontaneously (sic?) find something to do. Part of the reason why I am into asian ball jointed dolls (see www.denofangels.com for more info) is because of this walk through.

    I do remember they got rid of the scene where Phillip fights the dragon. They replaced it with a stained glass window.

    Of course, my favorite display was when Briar Rose was headed off to the woods and the fairies say their bye byes!
