Special thanks to my friends – Jodi @ Magical Mouse Schoolhouse, Mike @ My Dreams of Disney, and Jennifer @Disney Babies Blog – for co-hosting this fun meme! Each week, we each share a little tidbit of Disney-related trivia with you – and we hope that you all will join in the fun by sharing your own Disney trivia with us! Follow the hop and make new friends!
This month, I’m celebrating my love for Celebrations Magazine! So, all my trivia tidbits will be pulled from the most recent edition – Castles & Dreams – November/December 2013.
Did you know that both Cinderella Castle in Walt Disney World and Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland face south?
They do! Do you know why? “Walt Disney specified that the castles be oriented in that fashion so that amateur photographers would have ideal shooting conditions when taking their souvenir photos.”
How nice and thoughtful of Walt, don’t you think? I know the castle is my favorite thing to take pictures of at the Magic Kingdom! I hope to one day make it out to Disneyland and snap some pictures of Sleeping Beauty Castle. In the meantime, I need to live vicariously through my friends! (Special thanks to Melissa from Disney on Wheels for the gorgeous picture in this post.)
