    Does the castle in "Beauty and the Beast" have an actual name?

    I know its a silly question but I was just curious. The Beast doesn't really have a last name either all we know is he is named Prince Adam.

    Does the original story contain this info? Anyone know?

    ORDDU: My sisters and I recall a rumor--from cast members at Disney Hollywood Studios--

    ORGOCH: --formerly known as Dizzy M&M's Studio--

    ORDDU: (Ahem!) --that, supposedly the Disney animators who worked on BEAUTY & THE BEAST had given the prince from this particular film the name of Adam. It was a way of identifying him behind the scenes. It's nothing new for Disney animators to assign names to the various 'unnamed characters' from the Disney animated films.

    ORWEN: Of course we don't know for sure that Adam is really the name the animaors gave to the prince in BEAUTY & THE BEAST. But there are certainly enough theme park cast members around who used to claim this, anyway...

    He is also called Prince Adam on the D-Show CD-ROM game, which BTW is the best Disney video game ever! Kingdom Hearts can't compare. The questions (including ones on Emil and the Detectives and the Viewliner) and the THEME SONG? All awesome.

    As far as I know, it has never been confirmed, as it was never used in the film itself. I assume those are just rumors.

    OMG I have this game! I bought it YEARS ago. Wonder if it would work on my current PC. But I remember now the game mentioned his name was Adam. What a memory jog!

    Can't find anything in the original story or translations, so probably not.

    ORDDU: My guess is that those who wanted you to belive that the prince was named Vincent were avid fans of the former TV series called BEAUTY & THE BEAST. They tried very hard to make a connection between that and the Disney animated film. But there was never any proof to support such a thing. Just wishful thinking, I'm afraid.

    Of all of the "original" stories I have read the name of the castle has never been mentioned. From what I can recall his name wasn't even used? I've read quite a few stories (Beauty and the Beast is by far my favorite) and I haven't heard anything concrete enough for a real answer.

    Hey Adam's a good name for a prince
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Ya it's old. Animal Kingdom was just about to open at the time, that's why you only saw concept art and construction footage of that park. And Mulan was the most recent animated feature. Any way you could get the song on mp3?

    As for the guy's name being Adam. What can I say? Belle likes a He Man.
