    That's very true. I apologize if I sounded like another snob who refuses to think anything at WDW is good simply because it's not "original." Heck, if I went by that logic all the time, I'd detest the DL Space Mountain--it's not the original, since it opened two years after the one at WDW. And I do love Space Mountain here at DL.

    I said what I said in jest. I don't seriously think that the Sleeping Beauty Castle is superior to the Cinderella Castle. I just prefer the Sleeping Beauty Castle because that's where my memories are. Plus, I'm more into DL's small-park-with-charm-in-the-details mood than WDW's breathtaking-resort-with-multiple-incredible-parks mood. Again, neither is superior to the other...people just have their preferences.

    Back on topic...it's true that the Pirates facade does a wonderful job. It fits in perfectly with the theming of NOS, but doesn't make a huge "arr! look at me! this is a pirate ride!" statement to guests. That's a different sort of effective facade.

    I guess if I want to go strictly by the rules of what a facade is, I'd have to say my favorite is the Haunted Mansion. Sleeping Beauty doesn't count, but I love it just the same.

    Operative term, 'was'. The castle is it's own thing now, and no longer serves as a fascade for anything.
