The attraction is located inside Sleeping Beauty Castle, which opened on July 17, 1955 with Disneyland Park. The castle’s design was based on the real Bavarian castle, Neuschwanstein. Guests could not actually walk through the castle’s interior until 1957. The famed drawbridge has only been lowered twice—once at the opening of the park in 1955 and again in 1983 at the rededication of Fantasyland.
Sleeping Beauty Castle Walkthrough may close intermittently to accommodate fireworks performances and will reopen approximately 20 to 30 minutes after the show has concluded.
