With Sleeping Beauty Castle, Fantasyland becomes the visual centerpoint for Disneyland and completes the transition from the real world. Each guest enters the park and shifts into the familiar of turn-of-the-century Main Street and with each step towards the castle moves closer to the fantastical and complete removal from the outside world.

Fantasyland is not just the land of fairy tales, but of Disney fairy tales. Almost every attraction in Fantasyland has a connection to one of Disney's classic animated movies. These connections are most prominently made in the classic dark rides of Fantasyland. Ride through attractions were common features of amusement parks before Disneyland, but Walt Disney took them to the next level with fully created environments.
