Why is the Disneyland Castle Sleeping Beauty’s castle?
It is fascinating to know that Disneyland Park was opened in 1955 featuring a magnificent castle they called Sleeping Beauty’s castle, but the movie “Sleeping Beauty” wasn’t to be released until 1959. Walt Disney and his workers at Disney laid the groundwork for very early marketing of the movie by calling the castle Sleeping Beauty’s Castle four years before the movie was released.
I had to look that up because during researching the list of movies the villains were in I noticed Sleeping Beauty was released in 1959 and Disneyland opened in ’55: this confused me a bit.
