Clouds, Diamonds, and a Castle

The backside of the castle certainly bears resemblance to its inspiration, Neuschwanstein Castle. It makes me wonder if the primary reason Walt was okay with the top’s reversal was to give Disneyland’s Castle a better shot at an identity of its own. I’d say it worked, if so.

I do maintain my position that the backside of the castle is severely under-appreciated. In support of my argument, I present you this lovely view.

  1. I agree with you 100%. I actually prefer the backside and it’s courtyard. Especially when viewing it dead center from the King Arthur Carrousel. Beautiful image. Thanks!

    1. That’s a great spot as well but one you have to be very patient to photograph!
