Enchanted Storybook Castle is the centerpiece castle of Shanghai Disneyland Park, which opened in June 2016. The castle is the first to represent all of the Disney Princesses, contrary to other parks. It is also the tallest Disney castle ever built.

Summary

Being the largest Disney castle ever constructed, Enchanted Storybook Castle houses a variety of functional facilities including a walk-through attraction, a restaurant, a makeover boutique, an elaborate stage, and a boat ride that goes underneath the main level.

In the main hall of the castle are mosaics depicting 4 Disney Princesses, representing the 4 seasons. With The Princess and the Frog representing Spring, Tangled representing Summer, Brave for Autumn, and Frozen for Winter. There is also an illuminated marquee with motifs inspired by Belle, Cinderella and Snow White. This is also the first castle in a Disney Park to have multiple main entrances from different sides.

Contrary to Sleeping Beauty Castle, inspired by Germany's medieval Neuschwanstein Castle; Cinderella Castle, which borrowed styles from gothic French architecture; and Le Chateau de la Belle au Bois Dormant's storybook whimsicality; Enchanted Storybook Castle's overall look was inspired by Renaissance architecture. However, its design features numerous details and elements previously used in precedent Disney castles. Designers also incorporated Chinese stylings and decorative elements to appeal to the country's audience. For example, the castle is topped with a golden peony, a flower popular among Chinese traditions. Besides the peony, the castle also bears a great amount of symbolic elements illustrate the partnership and the blending between Disney and Chinese culture.

During the designing phase, modern technologies such as 3D computer modeling had to be applied to design and break down the constructional steps for the team. Adding to its gigantic size, the castle is actually built on an elevated platform and can be seen miles away from the park. The platform itself is in fact a gigantic building that houses the boat ride that goes underneath the castle as well as behind the scene facilities.
