Something mystifying about going through a wardrobe and you are in a whole different world...just beautiful! :)

Walking through the Wardrobe. It's a classic, I mean come on, what little kid didn't look for Narnia in the back of their closet after reading the book (or seeing the movie)? Also for me there's always something magical about seeing that lamp post in the middle of that snowy wood. It also seems less traumatic than being pulled in by magic or those rings, where one minute your in your own world then you suddenly find yourself plucked into another strange, new world with talking animals and mythical creatures. Dying doesn't sound too appealing under any circumstances (although if I knew I was going to spend eternity in Narnia I probably wouldn't mind too much) O:-)
That's why I'm going to stand by the play world. I'm on Aslan's side even if there isn't any Aslan to lead it. I'm going to live as like a Narnian as I can even if there isn't any Narnia. -Puddleglum

I voted for the rings because once Digory and Polly knew what they did, they actually could control when they went to Narnia. At least they could control it until Aslan made Digory bury them. I’d love to have a couple of rings that could take me to Narnia and back whenever I wanted.

Then again, falling through a painting sounds pretty cool also.

Crossing the border with Calormen, of course! You can also Enter Narnia from Archenland, and without a visa! :p

I'd love to be thrown into a sea and swim for my life. That'd be super cool. Especially if Prince Caspian came to save me.

I voted for the wardrobe as thats the first book I read and the image of just going through a wardrobe and ending in a magical world will always stay with me as I'm sure it will with a lot of people. I always liked how in MN, Helen was just called by Aslan and arrived in Narnia with the suds from the washing still on her hands. I think she was the only person in the books who was just called by Aslan with no other magic or other people involved.

That's what I would've said. The feeling just sounds magical. And which book did "opening a door" come from?


Yes i meant the part in SC. Because they do enter into Aslan's country, which i guess wouldn't "technically" be Narnia, but they still got into another world. :D

I love the picture enter and the sea,
but I just had to vote for The wardrobe- the mystery with which Lewis described it makes it the most magical for me.

Enter wardrobe-
Feel coats and then trees-
Enter into Winter-
and most magical of all... The Lantern Post. :) :)

Ooh, hard choice. I was stuck between walking through the wardrobe and falling into a picture. I voted the wardrobe. I mean, it's just so cool and magical. I love how Lewis describes it in the book, and I love that scene in the movie.

If any of you knew me, you would find my vote strange. I voted "Falling Through a picture!
the reason my vote is strange is because I can't swim, so why would I want to fall into the ocean? maybe because my favorite book is VotDT...............

i think opening a door to get there would be cool, like it would just be a normal average day and you're heading towards a room and when you open the door you see Narnia. And of coarse i'd really wanna go in :D
