Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty Castle

Sleeping Beauty Castle opened on July 17, 1955 with Disneyland Park.  Its design was based on the Bavarian castle Neuschwanstein.  Guests could not walk through the interior until 1957 and the drawbridge has only been lowered twice, once at the opening of the park and again in 1983 at the rededication of Fantasyland.  It’s never more beautiful than at Christmas when specially lit for the holiday season.
