There are many Disney parks that contain castles, especially the Magic Kingdom-style parks. However, which one is the best out of all of them?
I agree with the beauty of DLP, and it has a dragon! But it is a bit shorter than WDW or the Asian castles. So I don't fault that choice, but I pick WDW's for aesthetic beauty (though TDL would be a near-tie, obviously). Shanghai is a bit too wide/blocky for my taste.They're all beautiful, but my personal favorite is the castle in Disneyland Paris. It has that wonderful fairytale look to it, with the square-trimmed trees and dramatic landscaping. And the cherry on the top is the dragon underneith. Inside the details are just gorgeous. To me, it really is the most magical.View attachment 644139

You forgot Tokyo Disneyland. Even though it's almost identical to the Magic Kingdom castle, it still has a few differences.I love this topic, but I think it needs more photos for comparing:

The inspiration of a pure fantasy castle comes from Neuschwanstein, but other than the similarity of the main towers in Sleeping Beauty's Castle, none of the Disney castles directly "quote" the German example. Cinderella's castles (which I like best) directly lifted and figuratively photocopied some features from various castles in the Loire Valley of France and the Alcazar in Spain, and assembled them together as whole. Because it lacks all the ornaments they put on the Florida version, my vote for the best goes to Tokyo. I also think they did the best forced perspective on this castle to make it look bigger than it really is. This is my only real fault for Sleeping Beauty Castle, the forced perspective just doesn't work as well.Was told all Disney castles were based on a german castle. Neuschwanstien? Maybe a pic of that for a base to compare others upon?
keep in mind that the DL castle was the first one they ever made, so they had no experience in castle making. They did what they could. Not to mention, Disneyland was smaller then. They didn't need a big castle. They just needed an interesting passage into Fantasyland.Paris looks reat, I wish theyd update the DL castle to make it look like the Paris one a little. The DL castle is so small and uninteresting compared to the rest imo
