    Do you remember the good old days when you could walk up to the castle and then walk through doorway to the other side. I used to love walking up the ramp and then looking back down Main Street, there was something special about it. I used to love walking through the crystal shop, what was it called, I can't remember.

    Do you remember when you could see all five of the mosaic murals, before they put up that silly divider and stopped people walking through. I wonder if they will ever open it again, I sure wish they would :sigh:

    Maybe I've just been unlucky then, I thought it had closed as whenever we have been to the MK in recent years it's been roped off (not show times) or the doors have been closed.

    I wonder if it's anything to do with the lights being put up for Christmas :unsure:

    I shall be having a look in September :lol:

    we were also able to walk through it last trip, but yes, they would close and block it off at different times during the day, like, any time the show in front of the castle was on, before wishes, during wishes, etc...

    I don't think it is, I've obviously been at the castle every time it's closed, I shall make sure I go through it this year :D
