    No surprise there.






    As you can see, both of the US parks placed their own castle in second place whereas the Eastern parks were constantly in the bottom two (with the exception of the TDL forum where WDW was knocked doen into fourth). Is this because US MiceChatters are more territorial about their parks? Or, as someone suggested, is that the Japanese are better travelled and so have a more informed opinion? Discuss!
    Not at all. It's due to the fact that the majority of MChatters have never been to the Asian parks and do not know any better than what they have seen in photos or video, which is hardly the way to rate anything Disney if you ask me. Also, I found it interesting that TDL's castle was at the bottom of the poll in the HKDL section... Maybe because the chinese are envious of the fact that Japan still has the best Disney Resort while they got stuck with the puniest?
    Of course.. for those of us who go to all of the resorts frequently... we beg to differ. Still... I agree with DLP's being the perfect castle.

      What is interesting is that in the early 90's, I didn't like DLP's. Now I love it and it is my favorite. Funny what happens over time.
      Let's put the Walt back in Disney!

        I didn't like it either when I first looked at pictures. Thought it was gaudy and rather tacky. Now, it too is my favorite of the 5 castles.

          Well, look at my history... back in the 70s and early 80s, I thought nothing could come close to WDW's majesty and grandeur... Then I went to DL, then Tokyo.. then Paris... and recently HK.. TDR is still my favorite after Paris and HK, but even those two and the original DL far surpass WDW in many ways...

            Originally I didn't like the TDL castle. But I have to admit, after its recent new paint job it easily beats all but the DLP castle!

              I quite agree, especially since I get to see all of the castles very often.

                I didn't like Paris's castle aesthetically until after my art education. In other words, not until about two years ago. Before then, I thought the castle was too "cartoony" for what it was suppose to be. Shows what I know.

                But I'm still more impressed with the versitility of TDL's castle since it can shoot water, fire, and pyrotechnics whenever the show designers what it to.

                  I was quite impressed to see how they turned an ordinary carbon-copy into such a brilliant castle just by adding pink highlights. It truly shows that that little extra touch goes a long way!

                    Pink touches? On TDL's castle? I know of the golden touches, but pink?

                      They added touches of pink (ala DLP/HKDL/DL castle) on the white sides of the castle didn't they?

                        It's more of a light pink/tan color rather than the bright pink colors of the Sleeping Beauty Castles.

                          /\ I just checked the pics again, and yes, it's more of a tan pink/beige than pink. But still, it looks better than the MK white.

                            I agree. I think the new color brings out the beauty of Cinderella Castle more so than the white.

                              I thought it was a light peach... or else, my eyesight is going bad.
