  • [Chat] Sleeping Beauty Castle- Hope I don't get killed for saying this! (not literally)

    I hope I don't get in trouble with you fellow Disney-lovers for saying this, bbbbbut....

    I think the Disneyland Sleeping Beauty Castle is rather "chinsey"..I said it. I'm sorry. But I do think it! I feel like Walt loved things to be so grande, and special, yet this castle looks like something out of a mini-golf park.

    I do very much so like Disneyland Paris' castle. It's so whimsical and pretty..The tall-ness of it makes it look so regal, like it almost feels like you shouldn't touch, look, or walk through it.

        I think it's the most beautiful of all the castles. Not only that, it has a history and legacy behind it that none of the others can match.

            I liked it better in the 90s it was more worn out and looked more like a real castle now its pink.
            Happy Halloween!!!

              It's not the grandest of castles, sure... but it's charming. I get that "I'm home" feeling whenever I see it. It's not the same when I see Cinderella's castle. They are just different feelings.

                It is not bad at all. As stated, not only is it actually quite impressive, but how can you mess with the legacy?

                  I was just going to say that! I agree with you 100%.

                          I also have to disagree, I love the castle!

                          But, correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Walt make it smaller on purpose? Because when Castle's were around the bigger it was, the more intimidating it was. Like a way to scare off people and show not to mess with the king that lives there. I think Walt wanted his castles to not be scary and intimidating, but friendly and welcoming.
                          Wow...I've been gone a long time...but I'm glad to be back!!

                            The castle seemed more real when it was painted and detailed appropriately.

                            All good fantasy depends on a veneer of reality. That veneer has been removed from SBC.

                              From some locations, it does seem too short, like it's missing an entire floor.



                              But with the Matterhorn next to it, they can't really make it taller because you wouldn't want a castle taller than a mountain.

                                You have to put it all in the right context. SBC was the first. It is not the biggest nor probably the best designed. It looks a bit miniature golfish because (as Steve said) the current paint scheme pushes it away from the "realistic base" that it should have.

                                But it has the most history. It is the only castle featured in a photo with Walt. It has (as others mentioned) a legacy. The others came along when the Disney company could afford to build them bigger and maybe even grander. But the reason they could do so was because this one came first and paved the way.

                                That's my 2 cents (before taxes)

                                  He had absolutely no idea there was going to be another castle at the time he built SBC. So he didn't make it smaller "on purpose". He just built a castle to what he thought was best for Disneyland. If he though a ginormous castle like Cindrella Castle would be better for DL then he would have built something more similar to that. But he didn't.

                                  So I think it's safe to say the SBC is the primary and best of all the Disney castles out there. The rest of them are just speculation as to what he may have wanted when in reality no one has any clue.

                                    I have to agree a little bit, I love the style and history of the castle but now I think it is just to small.. weee bit bigger!

                                      I personally love pink, so I have no problem with the color, also as far as size, Disneyland itself it not that big in comparison to WDW, so I think a smaller castle for a smaller land is just fine. I don't know, it's not like I walk up to it and think, wow, what a small castle! lol
                                      Yaye!

                                        Maybe it is just the pink? I feel like if it was in a White/creme/blue scheme it would be SO much more appealing. I always look at WDW castle and admire it
