The Disney Company now has six properties all over the world. Each with a Disneyland style park anchored by an icon in the form of a castle. Sleeping Beauty had three castles and now joins Cinderella with two, and the new Shanghai Disney Resort has the Enchanted Storybook Castle. But have you ever wondered which one is truly the biggest?
Here are the Disney Castles in order of height from smallest, to largest:
The original Disney park icon created by Walt Disney stands in the center of Disneyland Park in Anaheim, CA. It's total height is 77 ft.
Originally an (almost) exact replica of Walt's original 77 ft castle, the Castle of Magical Dreams that opened in 2020 stands as the centerpiece of Hong Kong Disneyland at 167 feet tall. The same height as our next castle.
I guess Disney's Imagineers decided that Aurora needed a size upgrade when they built her new castle at Disneyland Paris at 167 ft. Fun fact: There is also a dragon that lives underneath the castle. Scary!
Tokyo Disneyland's Cinderella Castle is smaller than the original in Orlando, but still clocks in at an impressive 168 feet tall.
Cinderella's original castle stands in the center of Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom and measures an impressive 189 feet tall. Why 189 feet? Because in Florida, any structure 190 feet or taller must have a flashing red aircraft beacon on top...and that would just be ugly.
Anchoring the newest Disney Resort Shanghai Disney Resort, this castle is also it's largest at 197 feet tall! It's so big it even has a boat ride inside!
How many of Disney's castles have you seen?
