  • Sleeping Beauty's Castle

    If both DL and DLP are both supposed to be Sleeping Beauty's Castle, then why the heck are they so different?? TDL and WDW are both Cinderella's Castle, but they look the same. It makes no sense.

      Well, you see in France they actually have castles. Here in the USA you throw a castle at us and we say "wow!" because we dont have castles. In France, Disney needed something particualarly magical to create the same sense of wonder with the French. This is also why the DLP castle is thought to be the most beautiful of all the Disney castles.

                No...WDW and TDL are the same in looks and name.

                  no they look similar one just looks like a version you might see if you were um on "medication" basicaly just a toontownish version of it kinda

                  they have similarities

                  I wouldn't mind getting that stain glass thing they have to replace our dolls (and maybe their dragon

                    First off, it's Sleeping Beauty Castle. Not Sleeping Beauty's Castle. (I'm a nerd, I know.)

                    Secondly, the Paris castle should be Belle's, but the dragon is really neat and Belle didn't fight a dragon so it wouldn't work if they changed it now...

                    Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty bought multiple homes. They must have had great financial advice from someone...

                    DLP's castle outrocks them all. IMHO.

                      If they put DL's castle in France it would be the laughing stock. So, they created a castle that was as impressive as any actual castle in France. Also, the similarities - especially the landscape - are designed after the film, which wasn't finished when DL's castle was built.

                        Yes. or Oui. The DL castle is shamelessly copied in miniature from an existing one in Bavaria. It would never read as Disney, but as mad ludwig the man who built the Neuschanstein Castle. WDW's is borrowed in detail from mostly French castles, so the DLP one had to be more of a cartoon proportioned castle that defies comparison and is french inspired, but all Disney.

                          How do you figure that the Paris castle should be Belle's?
                          Is the Hong Kong castle going to be Mulan's?

                          The house of the beautiful girl who sleeps in the woods....for me, that's Sleeping Beauty!

                          I think it's nice that the castles are different in 3 of the parks. It gives them each a different flavor. I think TDL got the short end of the schtick!

                            Though...if I may add...the Tokyo Castle houses the Castle Mystery Tour, not found in WDW.
                            Trivia: On April Fool's Day 2004, Disneyland guests found -- at the insistence of the board of directors -- the gigantic dragon featured in Fantasmic replaced with a gigantic Roy Disney (leading to a reprimand to the cast member playing Mickey Mouse when he hugged the giant instead of fighting it)

                              Why is Hong Kong getting Disneyland's original castle? Thats the stupidest thing disney has done since the budgets started cutting in tomorrowland

                                Can I put my two cents in?

                                I read that DLP Sleeping Beauty Castle was designed to look more "storybook" in architecture and landscaping because of all the "real" castle in Europe. It does rock. It is beautiful and wonderful to walk through. And the dragon is awesome. La Chateau de la Belle au Bois Dormant is my favorite Disney theme park castle. Although I will always have a soft spot in my heart for the "castlecake" os WDW's 25th. =8^)

                                I don't think all the castle have to look alike. Different castles would give each park its own "personality". Following that train of thought: TDL and DLHK are getting "cheated" out of their own castles.

                                  At first, they were gonna only do the original Orange Groves before Anaheim was built, but they figured at least they could do a Castle. :devil:

                                    Actually the castles are only named after the princesses, they're not necessarilly theirs. Cinderella Castle in Walt Disney World doesn't look anything like he one in the movie, actually, it looks more like Sleeping Beauty's Castle from the movie. and Sleeping Beauty's Castle in Disneyland looks a lot more like Snow White's from the movie. That's what makes them so charming (for me at least).
                                    I have a dream
                                    A song to sing
                                    To help me cope
                                    Trough everything

                                    If you see the wonder
                                    of a FairyTale
                                    You can take the future
                                    even if you fail...

                                    I believe in Angels
                                    Something good in everything I see
                                    I believe in Angels
                                    When I know the time is right for me...

                                    I'll cross the stream.... I have a dream

                                      The fact that they're all different is somewhat refreshing. While a lot of rides are recycled from park to park (grr... ) the castle at least gives every park it's own identity.
                                      So why the Hong Kong decision? You've got me!

                                        ORWEN: Well, I hate to disagree with you, Mr. Disney, duckling. But I don't see any similarities between the castle in the Snow White film and the Disneyland version of Sleeping Beauty Castle. If you look closely enough, you'll see that there's hardly any feature about the two that matches.

                                        ORDDU: I would say that the theme park version of Cinderella's Castle has SOME similarities to the animated film version of Cinderella, though. The tall, steep rooves are examples that come readily to mind.

                                        ORGOCH: Who the heck even CARES?! What I always wanted was the Horny King's Castle, instead a Snoozin' Floozie's er Cindersmelly's!!! I say git them dang prissy dames out a the way and let a REAL character git his chance ta live a life a luxury!!!
