Sleeping Beauty Castle's Secret

The centerpiece of Walt Disney's Magic Kingdom is Sleeping Beauty Castle. The symbol of magic, dreams and fantasy since 1955, the castle had a small secret; it originally had nothing inside of it.

Running out of money, Walt didn't want to have to skimp on the centerpiece of his park, so while the outside was completed exactly as he had envisioned, the inside was left unfinished. It wasn't completed until 1959, just in time for the release of the animated film it was named after- Sleeping Beauty.
