Matt Anderson's Take
You can now walk through the interior of Sleeping Beauty Castle and see a few semi-interactive displays that tell the story of Sleeping Beauty.

Well, let's back up a bit here first. This actually isn't a new idea. When the park opened in 1955 the interior of the castle was empty, there was no attraction inside. But in 1957 they decided to turn the inside into a walk through attraction with various Sleeping Beauty scenes along the way. In 2001 it closed down.

In 2008 it opened again and was completely updated with modern scenes and some pretty cool effects. The problem is that it still isn't very fun or interesting. Sure, some of the effects they've added are very well done but there aren't that many and you already know what most of the surprises are simply because you saw the people ahead of you do it first.

If you're claustrophobic then you may want to sit this one out because there are some tight and tiny spaces in there. This attraction was made well before the 1990 ADA laws (laws that require wheelchair access, etc) and because of the small spaces and stairs anyone who can't walk has to sit it out or take a virtual tour (which means watching a video).

I am surprised the reviews for this one aren't worse. This is a pretty boring walk through attraction. It's tiny inside so I can't imagine that could do much else with this space but this is pretty boring.

This might be somewhat neat to see once but I really wish they could do more with this.

Interesting and neat to see the scenes in here and my son seemed to enjoy it. It's way better when there aren't others in here with you otherwise it gets very crowded very fast.

Not all that exciting and very small and crowded inside.

As you walk through Sleeping Beauty's Castle you can experience the story of Sleeping Beauty. There is stair climbing involved and it can get crowded inside the walkways. But the artwork is beautiful!

Some of the displays inside are fun to watch and see but it's not a ride. You have to walk through. Neat to see but not something I would want to do again.
