This brings back fond memories. We loved seeing the stained glass windows of the castle when my daughter was working at Disneyland Paris. It was so interesting to compare the two Sleeping Beauty Castles (from here in California and Paris). I must say, the Paris castle wins by a mile/hands down/takes the cake/not sure what your British saying would be! ;)

I agree with any and/or all of your superlatives! I love the castle in Anaheim for the purely sentimental reasons that it was the first – and Walt built it. But that original castle is faux-European whereas the one in Paris is a work of pure fantasy. What's more, it's got a dungeon with a dragon!
