I know you're not supposed to believe everything you read but I just read that the Sleeping Beauty Castle is backwards? I don't get it. Is it true? If so, please explain? Thanks! Haha

Cinderella's castle in Disney World is modeled after the Neuschwanstein castle in Germany - MikeyMouse  145.1 #2794 2:20PM
The story I heard was Walt was presented the first design for the castle and didn't like it at all. Told the designer to re-do the castle and wanted it a different way.  After Walt left, the designer lifted up the model, turned it around and brought Walt in again. Walt loved it and accepted the design. - DLKenCA  2630.1 #49 3:49PM
The top is.  - IDVandalSkipperCM  2417.2 #61 1:51PM
An imagineer put the top on the model of the castle backwards and Walt liked it that way. This when you're looking from the hub towards fantasyland and the castle, that's really the back. SPOILER ALERT haha! - IDVandalSkipperCM  2417.2 #61 1:52PM
Thank you mamΓ¨!!! It's been driving me insane!! Lol - LilMissPixie84  309.5 #860 2:14PM
It is true. I can't remember the story exactly, so I'll let someone else tell it... But the front of the castle actually faces Fantasyland, not the Hub/Main Street - SPandEvLover  4531.8 #29 1:54PM
The top center part is.. The design was derived from another castle that I can't remember, and I believe the story is an imagineer flipped it to see if Walt would notice, or to be funny. And he actually liked it like that.. - MEHlanie_Mouse  1116.0 #162 1:54PM
Modeled after a Bavarian castle. I'm not even going to try spelling it. Ok maybe I will. Nuschwestein?   - IDVandalSkipperCM  2417.2 #61 2:02PM
They just turned it around last month! What do you mean 'don't believe everything you read?' Β Who's been spouting that nonsense?! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 1:54PM
Thanks everyone! I love learning new things about Walt and Disneyland! - AnaApples  31.0 #5879 4:35PM
