In a rare peek behind the curtain, Disney just released a time-lapse video showing the holiday transformation of Sleeping Beauty’s Castle at Disneyland.

That may sound like a small thing, but Disney is usually ultra careful about breaking the illusion of their parks. Anything that would make a child realize they aren’t in a special, magical place, is hidden as best it can be, with major changes like this usually happening well after closing.


So, for fans and non-fans alike, seeing things like a giant crane sweeping around the iconic castle, and huge pieces of the structure being taken off and replaced, is a real treat.
