Cinderella's Castle, the main entrance to Fantasyland, is the most photographed building at Walt Disney World.
Over the years, it has undergone some changes, from being transformed to a large, pink, candy trimmed 25th Anniversary cake, to the more ornate gold-trimmed spectacle that it is today.
Standing at 180 feet tall, the graceful spires and towers were inspired by the French castles of the 12th and 13th century, as well as Disney's animated feature, Cinderella.
The fairy tale Castle may look like the real thing, but it is actually made out of steel beams and fiberglass, not bricks.
A $1 billion expansion more than doubled the size of Fantasyland, which completed in early 2014. This included Storybook Circus area which now has two Dumbo the Flying Elephants and a themed queue area for the popular attraction.
