Fact indeed! ^^^ - JRDrummer_CM  875.4 #211 9:40AM
In the design phase, this was the front of the castle. The Imagineers had a model depicting this a s the front. One of them picked up the top half and flipped it around. The other Imagineers said "quick fix it, Walt coming", Walt walked in and saw the model with the flipped around top and loved it. The rest is history. - NickDoubleyew  1083.2 #168 9:41AM
nurseclick Walt wanted the back of the castle to face the front, but didn't want to reverse the whole moat and direction of Fantasyland. The actual structure of the castle is the only thing that is flipped. :) - JRDrummer_CM  875.4 #211 9:42AM
It's the back door draw bridge. Deliveries are made here. 😜 - misschurro  6361.6 #17 9:43AM
Herb Ryman was the Imagineer who happened to flip the top part of the castle model. - IDVandalSkipperCM  2417.2 #61 9:55AM
