|Sleeping Beauty Castle. Gateway to Fantasyland|
A little something people might not notice is a golden spike, driven into the ground within the walkway in the tunnel of the castle. Why is there a spike there? I’ll tell you why, and it’s not the exact center of the Disneyland park, like many people would have you believe. In fact, it's a survey marker. It marks the center line of Main Street so that the castle drawbridge and entrance would be perfectly centered with Main Street. And that in itself is a fantastic Gem! However,that’s not what I’m trying to bring to your attention. As soon as you walk underneath the castle and into Fantasyland, take a sharp left and find the doorway to venture inside of the castle itself.

So next time you visit the Disneyland Resort, treat you and your family to an amazing walk-through of the castle to revisit the magical story of Sleeping Beauty. You won’t be sorry that you did, and your kids will love it, especially if you read all of the story notes in an English accent. Disneyland, thank you for making everything so awesome!
