    Question Question about the different castles

    I was just looking at Dateline Disneyland and the art of the different castles. I thought it was interesting that all but WDW is Sleeping Beauty's Castle. Why do you think they decided to go that route and not make another Cinderella's Castle or a different princess for each park?

    Re: Question about the different castles

    As was just stated, Cinderella Castle is at Tokyo Disneyland and Shanghai Disneyland will have the rather bland and generic sounding Storybook Castle. Hopefully it won't end up Disney® Storybook Castle.

    In the case of Tokyo Disneyland, Cinderella Castle was copied at the behest of the Oriental Land Company. They wanted a pure, American experience and thus most of the park opened with copied designs, mostly from the Magic Kingdom.

    For Disneyland Paris there were thoughts given to doing a larger version of Sleeping Beauty Castle, but that idea was dropped for Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant.

    With Hong Kong Disneyland it was a matter of cost. The park was significantly scaled back by Disney between its announcement in 1999 and opening in 2005.

    Re: Question about the different castles

    I really wish they would name them differently for each castle at least they look a little different except Paris

    It's a music Celebration
    Come on, come on, come on
    Strike up the band,
    Feel the beat, what a great sensation
    Come on, come on, come on
    Move and clap your hands,
    Get into the Spirit
    Let everyone hear it,
    So come on, come on

    I know there were rumours that the Shanghai castle could have been the "tangled" castle. Really would have loved to see that.

    I think you are a little confused. Only Disneyland Paris and Shanghai Disneyland have unique designs.

    Re: Question about the different castles

    Now that I think about it, I don't think Tokyo was in the artwork. I was just noticing all the Sleeping Beauty's castles. I really like Paris'. I couldn't really tell what Shanghai was from the artwork. All I could think of was It's A Small World and figured it was just a bad drawing. It would be nice if they were all different. I guess since they reproduced DLs for HK and then made it more grand for Paris, I guess that means that Sleeping Beauty is better than Cinderella , which I've always known to be true.

    Disneyland Paris opened in 1992, Hong Kong Disneyland opened it in 2005.

    The only real art released for Shanghai Disneyland is of Storybook Castle. Images can be found on the official Shanghai Disney Resort website.
