Everyone "knows" that Walt Disney modeled Sleeping Beauty Castle after the castle in Neuschwanstein.
Where is this fact documented? Other than the resemblance, and Walt's visit there once, is there anything in the archives that nails this down as fact?
In one of the progress report broadcasts in 1954, Winston Hibler clearly states that they found the plans for Sleeping Beauty Castle in France, "buried away in a dusty archive." He goes on to say they did not build the castle in complete detail, but modified some portions.
Anyone know for sure?
