(Disneyland, 1957) An incredibly rare original door panel from the interior of Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland. Although Sleeping Beauty Castle has been a landmark of the park since opening day in 1955, the walkthrough element of the attraction didn't debut until April 29, 1957. Since then, the interior of the walkthrough has been refurbished on a few occasions, with this original prop wooden door being from the first iteration of the attraction in 1957. Composed of thick wood that has been hand-painted in the color and style of the film, the door wonderfully represents the visuals of the film and is an incredible artifact of the earliest years of Disneyland. Measuring 40"x18" and 2" thick, the door prop is in very fine condition with minor surface wear. Minor paint and wood restoration has been performed by Disney historians and artists Kevin Kidney and Jody Daily.
