High on the hill, and truthfully, not really noticeable to many people's line of sight, sit's Beast's castle. During the day when the sun is bright and you are squinting and hurrying for your reservation at Be Our Guest, or perhaps heading towards the Rapunzel area or Prince Regal's Carousal, you might not even notice this small castle. It's easy to miss until dawn, when the castle becomes aglow in sort light.
While my photo makes it look larger and closer to the walking area, here is a really fascinating one I found that Disney took when they were creating Be Our Guest that show's how far back it really sits. If you'd like to see a few more photos, just click on it, and it will take you to the Disney Parks Blog article.
For those of you who can't quite picture in your mind where this castle, it is located between Be Our Guest, and Journey Under the Sea, the Little Mermaid Ride. If you were to go to the stroller parking near Gaston's Tavern, and turn around and look up-- there it is.
Our most recent visit was the first time I ever got to see the castle at night. In fact, our first visit I had no idea that it was even there. It just goes to show that no matter how many times you go, you can never see it all! There's just too much, and that makes Disney World Parks a magical place to explore over, and over, and over again.
When not doing everything Disney, you can find me loom knitting, gardening and bargain hunting. After all, a dollar saved is a dollar towards Disney! I am not a Disney Vacation Planner, so I'll never be pushing my services, however on occasion I might post Amazon affiliate links. You won't pay a dime more, but buying through my links helps support the maintenance costs for the site.
