    Sleeping Beauty's Castle

    If both DL and DLP are both supposed to be Sleeping Beauty's Castle, then why the heck are they so different?? TDL and WDW are both Cinderella's Castle, but they look the same. It makes no sense.

    Well, you see in France they actually have castles. Here in the USA you throw a castle at us and we say "wow!" because we dont have castles. In France, Disney needed something particualarly magical to create the same sense of wonder with the French. This is also why the DLP castle is thought to be the most beautiful of all the Disney castles.

    First off, it's Sleeping Beauty Castle. Not Sleeping Beauty's Castle. (I'm a nerd, I know.)

    Secondly, the Paris castle should be Belle's, but the dragon is really neat and Belle didn't fight a dragon so it wouldn't work if they changed it now...

    Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty bought multiple homes. They must have had great financial advice from someone...

    DLP's castle outrocks them all. IMHO.

    If they put DL's castle in France it would be the laughing stock. So, they created a castle that was as impressive as any actual castle in France. Also, the similarities - especially the landscape - are designed after the film, which wasn't finished when DL's castle was built.

    Yes. or Oui. The DL castle is shamelessly copied in miniature from an existing one in Bavaria. It would never read as Disney, but as mad ludwig the man who built the Neuschanstein Castle. WDW's is borrowed in detail from mostly French castles, so the DLP one had to be more of a cartoon proportioned castle that defies comparison and is french inspired, but all Disney.

    How do you figure that the Paris castle should be Belle's?
    Is the Hong Kong castle going to be Mulan's?

    The house of the beautiful girl who sleeps in the woods....for me, that's Sleeping Beauty!

    I think it's nice that the castles are different in 3 of the parks. It gives them each a different flavor. I think TDL got the short end of the schtick!

    Though...if I may add...the Tokyo Castle houses the Castle Mystery Tour, not found in WDW.
    Trivia: On April Fool's Day 2004, Disneyland guests found -- at the insistence of the board of directors -- the gigantic dragon featured in Fantasmic replaced with a gigantic Roy Disney (leading to a reprimand to the cast member playing Mickey Mouse when he hugged the giant instead of fighting it)
