If you think you’re too old to believe in fairytales, you might wanna think again coz a 30-million-year-old cave in New Zealand will transport you straight to Disneyland.

Excited?

At first, these caves look like pure fantasy, but they are real. And the secret to their ‘Cinderella-like’ magical essence lies in the colonies of glowworms that reside inside the cave.

Auckland photographer Joseph Michael documented the bioluminescence of the glowworms in the limestone caves by spending countless hours in the frigid paradise.

Take a look at the stunning images!
