Good morning! This day in Disney history, Jan 29th, 1959. "Sleeping Beauty", Disneys 16th full length animated feature premieres @ the Fox Wilshire Theater in Los Angeles. Story development started in 1951, meaning that in total, it took 8 years to make. Animation alone took 6 years because of the level of detail in each frame. Have you ever noticed that the film seems like a moving piece of art? Well that's because Walt wanted each frame worthy of being displayed in a gallery! At $6 million, it was the most expensive animated film ever made. Sadly, it earned $5.8 million, less than what it cost to make, meaning Disney lost money on it. It will be nominated for an Oscar for Best Music/Scoring of a Musical Picture. The voice cast includes Mary Costa (as Princess Aurora), Eleanor Audley (as Maleficent), Barbara Jo Allen (as Fauna), and Verna Felton (as Flora). Have you seen this film? What is your favorite part?

One of my favs! My favorite part of the movie is the music... Tchaikovsky!! The musical score features many pieces from Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty ballet, 1890. Thank you SMK! Love this movie. - MyPark  1288.7 #155 10:45AM
Have you done the walkthorugh at Dl or do we have to add it to our list - pikarich  6998.0 #18 11:01AM
THANK YOU FOR MENTIONING THIS! Pretty Much the musical score of the movie was based on Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty Ballet... Once Upon a dream is a waltz from the ballet! - otilegna  2826.9 #58 12:00PM
No prob otilenga. Rich, that's one thing I have actually done. - MyPark  1288.7 #155 12:40PM
Thanks for the additional info, MyPark! Tchaikovsky is a brilliant composer, and I'd go as far to say 95% of the general population has heard his work, and they just don't know it ;) - JRDrummer_CM  875.4 #238 12:45PM
Yes! Definitely agree with you. The music from Sleeping Beauty always gives me chills. - kss4tink  218.0 #1870 10:15PM
β™ͺI know you I walked with you once upon a dream.β™ͺ - Stitch_Legacy  5143.2 #28 10:11AM
My daughter and I sing that song EVERY day!! - FindMeAtTheCove  237.4 #1610 10:13AM
I remember thinking this was THE most romantic song ever when I first saw this as a child. :) - MissAmericaSings  445.5 #545 11:06AM
I LOVE this song! I will randomly sing this around the house, cracking my daughters up! Hahahaha. - MeridaFan  4244.2 #41 11:26AM
Listened to that the whole ride in to the park today - BeatleMike  635.6 #360 9:48AM
The book at the beginning was actually made and has been seen in many exhibits.It was very common to use live shots as an introduction to a film winnie the pooh was the most used in this style.Also as part of Fantasmic ,murphy the dragon now on it;s second version is the best dragon in the show with real fire breathing capabilities. The first summer it debut it was missing for most of the first summer due to technical difficulties, who remembers that?my favorite part is the villians did not find Aurora because they were looking for her as a child.lol - pikarich  6998.0 #18 10:58AM
and to add cinderella can be found everywhere in the parks, from the castle walk through,meet and greet, parades and fireworks. - pikarich  6998.0 #18 11:18AM
Love everything about this movie. Another fact- Aurora/Briar Rose has the least amount of spoken lines throughout the movie and they all come at the second half. - aprilinjune4  483.5 #484 10:30PM
Saw this movie with my mom and dad at the drive-in. We had to put our jammies on before we went. My little brother fell asleep. So I got to climb up front and sit between my mom and dad. You know how hard it is hearing a movie through a little speaker but I think they made out of tinfoil.  - Midasgold  633.3 #362 2:10PM
I couldn't resist commenting on this, my apologies for the tardy bump, well, 1 year and 1 day...lol, but what a cute memory that was! Thanks so much Midasgold for sharing that! Your comments always make me smile! "jammies" - Duchess_SMK  6631.1 #22 9:42AM
Thanks for this! I never knew.. Lol. My friend used to call me Sleeping Beauty because I'd always fall asleep everywhere. - FindMeAtTheCove  237.4 #1610 10:14AM
Appropriate on your birthday lovely! 😘😊 hope your day is magical! - Duchess_SMK  6631.1 #22 10:23AM

Very interesting that the film originally made a loss. Something tells me that the DVDs and "Aurora" merchandise sold over the years may have turned this around. Great job Duchess. - RapunzelledColey  143.0 #2964 11:01AM
My favorite Disney movie! I love every part of it! Thanks for the info!!! Always love reading these posts. - mcramos925  483.0 #486 11:07AM
Wonderful movie. I really enjoy the forest scenes bc of the colors the chose and the shapes of the trees. So well done. Thanks, Duchess!! - misschurro  8490.3 #13 11:21AM
Love the classics! The perfect movie! Sigh. I am curious how much rereleases and video/DVD sales have made over the years. So sad it actually lost money originally! I hope Walt wasn't raked over the coals for that! - MeridaFan  4244.2 #41 11:28AM
Great info! My favorite scene is when they are trying to make the cake and gifts. Too funny! - erinten  539.9 #431 11:57AM
One of my favorite movies. Once Upon a Dream was such a romantic song. I had a crush on the prince as a little girl. - Witchie77  411.1 #596 12:22PM
OMG! This is my most FAVORITE movie and not just Favorite movie! I am so happy about this post! This movie needs more recognition! - PrincessDaisy_FU2Rcm  362.0 #698 12:31PM

Get a quick overview of the new features in MouseWait 9 for iOS, our biggest update since 2009! Get the free version here, or upgrade to Platinum here

Just installed the MW app on my new phone yesterday. This will be very helpful for me since I am used to the android version. Thank you. - teapotsandteacups  3082.0 #52 11:41PM
This was helpful.. But I'm still having an issue posting to pics to the loungeπŸ˜‘ - 1Minnie58  7.9 #14037 10:12AM
I've had a lot of trouble with platinum version. It seems to "magically" close itself at random times. The most common random closes are: after updating ride or food times, after clicking on a different feature in the app, or immediately after opening. I generally have to re-open it 2-3 times, at which point it stays open until I've made my update, but if I stop using it for more than 5 minutes and go back to it I have to go through the magical closings again. πŸ˜“ - Mouse28  794.4 #272 9:06AM
I never had that issue with the free version.  - Mouse28  794.4 #272 9:06AM

It will stay the same until someone else gets enough points and quality to pass a couple more people. Even though two people on the list don't post much they still are ahead of the rest of us in quality points so they earned their spot. And Plumiegirl you post QC so you're qc score is high! πŸ˜„ - secretagentangel  9283.4 #11 8:33PM
when you are at the top you tend to move slower because its the same folks that frequent the parks most. So hence the top ten.. trolls ;) - Plumiegirl  10493.2 #9 9:55PM
