Sleeping Beauty Castle

Disneyland Resort

At the far end of Main Street USA, Sleeping Beauty Castle is an obligatory photo op and most recognizable landmark. Its towering blue turrets, loosely based on Germany's Neuschwanstein Castle, are visible from many areas of the park. Inside are exhibits of park history and the Maleficent story.

The sections of Disneyland radiate from here like spokes on a wheel.
