She wasn't a princess but who said the castle had to be for a princess?
In the park announcement, there are supposed to be concessions to Chinese culture- so why not use Chinese folk tales instead of European ones?

I think that they should have a towering castle perched on a hill with waterfalls' and a new color skeme. Perhaps have a tan walls and red tiled roofs. They could make the castle just Fantasy Castle and have it themed to all the princesses and princes. Just Brainstorming
I think that they should stick to classic disney film castles. But should not simply just make carbon copies of the castles.
Beauty and the Beast castle would be an amazing centerpiece. But instead of just making the center piece of the park just a castle with a giftshop or restaurant in it an actually attraction. Have a beauty and the beast dark ride that takes you through the movie. Or place a theater in the castle where there is a stage production of beauty and the beast. and if that gets old than alternate the stage show to another stage show of a classic disney prince and princess.
If they go with sleeping beauty or cinderella which are already located in asia... they should reinvent the castles but not DLP style but in a new way. Give people from all over asia a reason to go to the park.
If they put a new castle in they could offer a regional promotion... like the castle pass or something where you get a special perk for visiting all the castles.....
ORWEN: Snow White has dark rides that none of the other princesses have. Ariel will soon break that tradition. But that's why I think Snow White has never had a castle in her honor. She certainly has plenty of other items around to promote her.
