    Sleeping Beauty vs. Cinderella Castle

    We were having a "Discussion" in the WDW forums about what castle the "Disneyland" people who have been to WDW would prefer.

    So here is the question, which Castle do you like better? This isn't equated to what park, or resort, or ride, or anything like that. It's about the CASTLE and ONLY the Castle.

    I marked this thread as "Fun" for a reason. This is a fun little poll.

    As for me, personally, I like Cinderella's castle better.

    Just as a point of reference:

    Re: Sleeping Beauty vs. Cinderella Castle

    I've never seen Cinderellas in person, but by looking at the pic it looks to sharp and cold, not very inviting.

    On a funny, slightly off-topic, note:
    While waiting for the fireworks on Monday night at DL, this lady was talking to her 2 young girls behind us, she was saying "Do you know who lives in that castle girls, which Princess?" and the girls say "Cinderella" "Sleeping Beauty" "Snow White" and the mom says "Thats right Snow White lives there... I think" it was pretty funny, my dad and I looked at each other and started silently busting up
    Is this haunted signature
    actually
    stretching?


    Or is it your imagination, hmm?

    I have always loved Cinderella Castle. The size of it, the beautiful stained glass windows in the restaurant, the mosaic in the breezeway.

    Re: Sleeping Beauty vs. Cinderella Castle

    Having seen both in person I'd have to say Sleeping Beauty Castle is my favorite.

    Short story -

    I grew up on the east coast and had only been to WDW. When I moved to the west coast and went to DL for the first time I had no idea how much smaller the castle was. My husband still jokes at me for saying this on Main Street, "Is that the pre-castle? Where's the rest?"

    Cinderella's Castle for sure. Just the size alone is awesome but the fact that there is so much more detail and a restaurant makes it the best IMO.

    Re: Sleeping Beauty vs. Cinderella Castle

    I've never seen Cinderella's castle in person, and it looks amazing in the pictures, but I still love Sleeping beauty's castle more. I used to pretend it was mine and I lived in the top tower when I was a little girl.

    Re: Sleeping Beauty vs. Cinderella Castle

    Sleeping Beauty's Castle holds a very special place in my heart....but when I saw Cinderella's Castle in person I just said "WOW"!

    So have to vote for Cinderella's.

    it's what they are like in their HEART!

    I prefer Sleeping Beauty Castle. Sleeping Beauty Castle has charm and great sentimental value. Cinderella's castle is just too large, as is the scale of MK's Main Street.

    Re: Sleeping Beauty vs. Cinderella Castle

    why do I like Sleeping Beauty....

    The colors are wonderful, also (if not mistaken) with Cinderella, you have to walk around to get to the moat (unlike Sleeping), so it looks more like a castle because you can see the moat as soon as you walk up to it.

    Sleeping Beauty Castle is far more realistic. Battle fortifications are perfect examples of form following function, and SBC (once) exemplified this. It was this veneer of reality that made the fantasy better--and more believable.

    There is nothing realistic about Cinderella Castle.

    Just with these two, I am going to pick DL's because I do think it is more significant as being the first. And I do think it's beautiful. You can tell it comes from a simpler time.

    Cinderella Castle though is amazingly beautiful.

    I have to go with Sleeping Beauty because its less poky. The spires of Cinderlla just seem more sharp, and the color isn't as friendly. Sleeping Beauty reminds me gives off a friendlier vibe.

    Re: Sleeping Beauty vs. Cinderella Castle

    I think Cinderella Castle is the most impressive design of the two, however, Sleeping Beauty Castle looks cuter, and more like a classic fairy tale castle. So I think Sleeping Beauty looks best in the park, but Cinderella would look prettiest if it was just the castle by itself.

    If that makes sense.

    Re: Sleeping Beauty vs. Cinderella Castle

    Even though the castle in WDW is bigger and more grand than the one here in California, I believe ours is better simply because it is the original

    The one in Florida is a bit too fancy for me... ours is simple and beautiful

    Like the above poster I appreciate the simplicity and coziness of the Sleeping Beauty castle.
