  • Sleaping Beauty Castle Tiaras

    Is it my imagination or does the discription of the meaning behind the 5 gold crowns seem lacking?

    The following link is an AP link so, I don't know if everyone is able to view it... I am cutting to the marketing info...

    There are 5 crowns, or tiaras, that set atop the turrets of the Castle. They represent the 5 decades of Disneyland's history and each one represents an important event that took place during that decade. Tiara one: Disneyland's creation, with the famous Mickey Mouse ears peeking up over the Horizon of the future to come. Tiara two: the introduction of the New Tomorrowland, "The Land on the Move", featuring the famous "Rocket Ship to the Moon" ornamentation, accented by opalescent planets streaking through the sky. Tiara three: The Main Street Electrical Parade is represented by the Beautiful Blue Fairy as the twinkling Queen. Tiara Four: Indiana Jones makes it debut with the famous Eye of Mara, guarded by the royal snakes. Tiara Five, the Golden Celebration, with sparkling fireworks in the sky and Tinkerbelle as our "Belle of the Ball".
    This sort of begs the question: Was the "Golden Celebration" ment to be the pinicle of the Pressler era?

    I haven't seen the crowns, so I can't really say much about how they look. But what do you think they should have chosen to repsresent the years 1995-2005? There wasn't a whole lot going on at Disneyland during those years. Maybe a representation of California Screamin' or something ugly and brown like the "new" Tomorrowland?

    I think Tinker Bell is a fine choice. To me, it allows us to look ahead to the future without have to spend a lot of time reliving the last 10 years which were less than Magical.

    But that's just my opinion!

      I looked at them yesterday and they are very well done. I didn't know the whole story, looking at them and thought they were for each land, but that didn't make sense.
      I think the last, most recent crown means that nothing happened the last decade as the crown before it was the last E ticket put into the park. A crown for repainting everything would be hard to pull off.

        Each tiara represents an important step in the history of Disneyland. Tiara #5 represents the Golden Anniversary. OK. The anniversary would have happened anyway. To answer your original question: Yes... sort of. Tiara #5 represents the fact that the park survived the era of "those whose names shall never be spoken" and didn't collapse into a pile of termite riddled wood, broken attractions, peeling paint, stagnant water and cheezy plush. Thank goodness we can now look forward to the possibility of a sixth, seventh...etc. tiara someday.

        Ya know... we should've suspected something when they started to destroy Tomorrowland and plant oranges.

              LOL - that is great!


              If you want to see the crowns you can visit my gallery over at VF. I just shot some close ups of the crowns - they are in my 5/20 album. If you want medium shots (instead of closeup) back up to the 5/9 album.

                Actually, the concept of edible decorations has been part of Tomorrowland ever since its creation. The idea is that future generations can get more than one use out of plants.

                Next time you go to Disneyland, jump in the line for HISTA and check out the plants that border the queue - strawberries!
