So a little while ago I wrote my Disney Bucket List, which I’m constantly adding to and, luckily, ticking off, and it covers most things Disney, including Disney parks.
Today, however, I’m looking at the great wide world, and the many places (mainly castles!) that have inspired some of my favourite Disney movies that I’d love to check out for myself!
Mont St. Michel, France – inspiration for the beautiful kingdom of Corona
Chateau de Chillon, Lake Geneva – Prince Eric’s real world palace
Neuschwanstein Castle, Germany – the incredible Bavarian castle that has inspired elements of most of Walt Disney’s classics
Alsace, France – Belle’s beautiful home village
°o° Notre Dame Cathedral, France – home of our favourite hunchback
°o° Dunnottar Castle, Scotland – Pixar’s inspiration for the film, Brave
°o° Machu Picchu, Peru – inspiration for Pacha’s home village in The Emperor’s New Groove
°o° New Orleans, Louisiana – the 1920’s setting of The Princess and the Frog
°o° Angel Falls, Venezuela – Carl’s dream retirement spot
°o° Route 66, USA – the real life setting of Pixar’s Cars
°o° Taj Mahal, India – Princess Jasmine’s beautiful home
Forbidden City, China – inspiration for the Emperor’s palace in Mulan
