Sleeping Beauty


Released in 1959, Sleeping Beauty is based on 2 fairy tales: The Sleeping Beauty by Charles Perrault and Little Briar Rose by the Brothers Grimm. It is the tale of a princess cursed by a vengeful fairy to die on her 16th birthday by pricking her finger on a spinning wheel. However, the curse is transformed from death into a deep sleep only to be awoken by true love’s kiss. Sleeping Beauty (or Aurora) can be met by guests in Disneyland and Disney World. Additionally, the castle in Disneyland is officially referred to as Sleeping Beauty Castle.

Maleficent’s dragon and other characters are seen daily in the Festival of Fantasy Parade in the Magic Kingdom.
