Going to Disneyland is fun, but an amusement park has nothing on the real-life castle that inspired the one in Sleeping Beauty.
Yes, even Disney needs a little magical motivation, sometimes. Animators often look to real architectural structures as sources of inspiration for the dreamy castles, palaces and cities featured in the films that captivated your childhood.
Many of these places are now popular destinations that are open for visiting and touring, not to mention photo opportunities. You can visit these enchanting locations year-round, so start planning your Disney pilgrimage now.
