If I had a rare 1937 "3-legged" Buffalo Nickel for every slide of Sleeping Beauty Castle that I owned, I would be a happy fellow. I'm trying to figure out how to make this scenario a reality.
There it is, the ne plus ultra of castles - at least until Cinderella Castle was built in 1970. They're both good though, working in very different conditions. I admit to being totally biased and loving Sleeping Beauty Castle more than the Florida castle, but let's not fight about it. We can disagree and still be pals!
On the other (back) side of the castle you can see that the courtyard is chockablock with guests. In spite of all that is going on at ground level, I can't help looking at the door that is on the upper level of the castle (behind the crenellations). This is where gremlins emerged at night to misbehave. Lucky gremlins!
Everybody's milling around; they don't know where to go next! I recommend the "Mr. Hippity" ride!
"What the heck are you talking about, Major Pepperidge?"
Well, I went to Disneyland with a girl one time, and she wanted to go on "Mr. Hippity". Turns out she meant "Mr. Toad's Wild Ride". Ever since then, I like to call it "Mr. Hippity" too!
