  • [Question] A question about Sleeping Beauty's Castle

    Was Sleeping Beautys castle always called 'Sleeping Beauty's Castle'? The reason I'm asking is because I noticed the other day that Sleeping Beauty came out in 1959.. 4 years AFTER Disneyland opened.
    Growing older is manditory
    Growing up is however, optional

    I believe it was, it was built partially to hype up the movie

    but i would trust someone else a little more, they probably can give a more concrete answer.

      I think it was originally going to be called Snow White's castle, but then it was named Sleeping Beauty's castle because that movie was the next to come out. Like krystledm said, i'm sure there are more knowledgeable people who might have more information.

            I was totally thinking that! Ha! Anyway, originally, it was going to be Snow White Castle, hence the Wishing Well to the side, but then the Castle became a bit of a Synergy advertisement for the upcoming film. And thus it was to become Sleeping Beauty Castle.

              :ot:This doesn't have any thing to do with the castle but my question is.

              Why do people call Princess Aurora Sleeping Beauty when it isn't her name. Sleeping Beauty is the name of the movie. You don't hear people call Ariel Little Mermaid or Belle Beauty but you hear alot of people calling Aurora Sleeping Beauty. Every time I hear people calling Aurora that I just grind my teeth together and get very angery when I hear that name and I always have to clear it up that that's not her name it's the name of the movie. So why is it that people call her Sleeping Beauty?

                that's the last thing to get upset over

                Little kids do it and it just sticks with you. and kids do call belle beauty and ariel the little mermaid...it's eaiser to remember then specific names when your little.

                  Yup, Walt used it to promote his upcoming classic-to-be. Kinda like It's Tough to Be a Bug opening at WDW before A Bug's Life hit theaters, only in a less explicit way.

                    Actually, they do. You're apparently just not around to hear it. It's really such a minor thing, it's really nothing to get upset about it. Especially since you're not her, nor her defender. Really, it's just a case of learning to deal with it, and move on.

                      I'm sorry but when I hear it even where I work It just drives me crazy to hear that name.

                        Re: A question about Sleeping Beauty's Castle

                        There's an article by Wade Sampson on Mouseplanet describing the Walkthrough and how it came to be. http://www.mouseplanet.com/articles.php?art=ww080723ws

                        Here's the relevant paragraph to the Castle name:
                        The castle wasn’t specifically designed to be Sleeping Beauty’s castle. In early planning and written material, it is designated as “The Medieval Castle” and then “Fantasyland Castle” and even “Robin Hood Castle” to theme in with the Disney live action film. This may explain why some of Robin’s merry men hung out in front of the castle in the early years. On his weekly television program In December 1954, Walt himself even referred to the castle as “Snow White’s Castle.”
