IMG_3913-Universal-Studios-globeπŸ™‚ Check it out – Universal Studios has gone and put a castle in their new Singapore theme park. Gee, wonder where they got THAT idea? πŸ˜‰ Although it appears to be nothing more than a facade for the Shrek attractions, it’s still a very nice facade.Β  It has lots more turrets than any of those OTHER theme park castles πŸ˜† Clink the link to the blog article below to get a look at it.

Canada’s “castle”
What’s inside? I often wonder
Could someone live there?

There’s a suite upstairs in Cinderella’s Castle at the Magic Kingdom now. Every so often, you hear about someone winning a night in the suite; eventually, I guess Disney will open it up for regular stay bookings (although, I don’t know how that would work if you decided to go out at night and return after the park is closed).

Recently, Disney allowed one lucky family to stay overnight at the Haunted Mansion, also in the Magic Kingdom. Can you imagine staying overnight there? I wonder if Disney arranged for things to “go bump” while the family was there? You know, make it extra spooky… heh heh heh!

So, how much longer before other buildings in other parks are selected as overnight treats or else actual, regularly offered accommodations? The first place I thought of was the “castle” in EPCOT’s O, Canada! pavilion. I’ve written about it before – see That “other” Disney castle. It is, after all, modeled after a hotel, the ChΓ’teau Laurier in Ottowa. However, like any other Disney building, it was architected using forced perspective, so the apparent 6 stories are really probably only 3 or 4. Cinderella’s Castle had to be similarly challenged; I bet what looks like two stories on the outside is really only one story on the inside.

Anyhow, I think I would like to stay in Disney World’s “other” castle overnight. And sneak out into the darkness in the dead of night so I can make a raid on the pretzel bread they serve in the Le Cellier Steakhouse nearby! πŸ˜€

No, it’s not the one in the Magic Kingdom – it’s the one in the Canada pavilion in EPCOT. It’s modeled after a hotel in Ottawa called Chateau Laurier. I think it makes a pretty picture, don’t you?

Happy Friday, everyone!
