WDW Fun Fact Day 2: Let's Talk Castle

Recommended Posts

Hello Everybody! Welcome to my Disney Parks Fun Fact of the Day!

Are you a castle fan? 
This fun fact is for you!

Cinderella Castle is exactly 189 feet tall!

but why? 

*According to the original laws of both Orange and Osceola County, any structure 190+ feet tall must have a large red flashing aircraft warning light. This prevents aircraft from hitting it in inclement conditions!


Naturally, Disney did not want a giant RED LIGHT on the castle, thus it was designed to be JUUUST under the limit! 


*Note that the Federal Aviation Authority has since changed the minimum height of buildings, allowing for Tower of Terror and Expedition Everest to be taller than the castle!
