Cinderella Castle was inspired by a variety of real and fictional castles. These included Fontainebleau, Versailles and the châteaux of Chenonceau, Pierrefonds, Chambord and Chaumont, as well as Castle Neuschwanstein, Bavaria, and Alcázar of Segovia, Castile and León (Spain), the oldest of all, which is nine centuries old and also the Moszna Castle in Poland which was built in 18th century. The chief designer of the castle, Herbert Ryman, also referenced the original design for the castle in the film Cinderella and his own well-known creation — the Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland in California.

Key to the Castle

The time has come
to turn your heart
into a Temple of Fire.

Your essence is gold
hidden in the dust,

To reveal its splendour
You need to burn
in the fire of love.

When compassion
fills my heart
Free from all desire,

I sit quietly
like the earth.

My silent cry
echoes like thunder
throughout the Universe.

There is a way
from your heart to mine
And my heart knows this,

Because it is clean
and pure like water.

When the water is still
like a mirror
It will behold the Moon

~ Rumi
