STOP THE PRESSES!
For years, I had heard/read that the Sleeping Beauty’s Castle drawbridge was only lowered two times...on opening day and then at the Fantasyland rededication; my photo from July 18, 1955 disproved that one. Today, I had an email from a reader who sent this photo of Snow White from the Snow White Dark Ride, circa August 1972. What makes it so amazing is that everything I have read about this Dark Ride claims that there was no Snow White figure until after the 1983 Fantasyland remodel, and that previously guests were confused because there was no trace of dear Snow on the ride at all. Warren (my new best friend) also says that he remembers this figure being located in a turn right before the Evil Queen’s dungeon. Tomorrow I will return to the 1956 series, unless someone happens upon a photo from the Sleeping Beauty walk-through or an interior shot of Mineral Hall. Anyone...anyone...
