Castle Comparisons - WED’s Way of Measuring Up Fantasy
If you’ve ever wanted to place Sleeping Beauty Castle and Cinderella Castle side by side to compare the scale of the structures, here’s your chance. I know that I’ve been eager to see this for a long while.
And what better way to do it vis-a-vis WED’s own plans and blueprints? The above schematic is from March 1986 as Disney was preparing to build Euro Disneyland. The park was taking shape in either France or Spain at this point in time- the specifics hadn’t been nailed down yet. Nor had the design of the castle that would grace the new Disneyland across the Atlantic. So, as the imagineers began plotting out what a new European magic kingdom would need, they drew on their past repertoire of construction methods in castle-building. As finally built, Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland Paris strikes a happy medium between the two extremes seen above. Slender, graceful, and organic, the third Disneyland castle to stand at the entrance to Fantasyland is a departure from the old-world charm and grandeur of Disneyland’s and Walt Disney World’s castles.

I’m watching a bunch of random videos people put on YouTube of the Magic Kingdom in the 70’s and 80’s. There are virtually no stupid ODV carts every five feet or merch carts and DVC kiosks. The park is so uncluttered. There isn’t dance parties every 30 minutes and they’re able to run the MS vehicles all day. The park seems so much more natural. There is so much visual clutter now in the parks (mainly the fault of F&B being awful like usual) and it really destroys a lot in terms of sight lines and atmosphere of the park. (Also can we talk about how beautiful Tomorrowland used to look, so sleek and streamlined, no silly cartoon cutouts or bright garish colors)
I love WDW now, but I really wish I had seen it in the 70’s and 80’s. The parks looked so much better than (I have recollections of the late 90’s early 2000’s and I loved the lack of clutter back then)
