Inside Cinderella's Castle - a story in mosaics

I practically grew up at Disney World.  And I distinctly remember walking through the castle from the hub and into Fantasy Land.  I remember the heat and the humidity.  And then, in the cool corridor of the castle, a welcome respite.  And in that corridor - I remember mosaics telling the story of Cinderella.

But going to Magic Kingdom with my own children, I don't recall walking through the castle.  It's often blocked off because of the stage for the Dream Along with Mickey show.  And.  My family tends to tour in a circular pattern, so walking through the middle doesn't typically happen.

And then on our last trip, I wanted to go back through the castle to see if things were as I remembered.  My girls didn't even realize you could walk right through!

There wasn't a lot of "traffic" on our end - but at the other end are the entrances to Cinderella's Royal Table on one side and the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique on the other.  So I was able to take a leisurely walk and enjoy the beautiful mosaics and assure myself that I hadn't conjured up a childhood memory - that it was all real.

So...what about you?  Have you seen the mosaics inside the castle?  Do you have a favorite childhood memory of Disney World?
