New Disneyland Sleeping Beauty Castle

Few weeks ago Pandora released 2 new Disneypark Castles: Disneyland (California) and Disneyworld (Orlando).
These follow the design from the Paris Beauty and the Beast castle with enamel rooftops and are to replace the previous ones.

Because of my many Instagram friends I managed to get hold of the California castle pretty fast.

The package arrived yesterday and it's even more pretty than I could imagine.




Just like Paris the pendant holder is smaller and has a beautiful cz stone.

This makes it more elegant and will look so much better on the bracelet.

To see best how the design has changed I have taken a picture of the 2 Sleeping Beauty castles next to eachother.

This shows how the castle has become a bit more 3D style and has more curves all around. The shape is also longer and smaller.

You can clearly see how much smaller the pendant holder really is.

The Disneyland engraving mostly stayed the same as it follows the font of the parks.

Only the chape of the charm makes it seem a bit different.

Of course I also have to compare to the Disneyland Paris charm.

Which was the first castle with the coloured enamel rooftops.
I must say these are truly little works of art.

Well ... you know I like castles but even if I didn't I would say they are really gorgeous.


They make me happy, and I always feel like a little princess when I'm 'playing" with them (and not acting my age LOL)

And combined with the 'older' Disneyland one you can see how the new design goes very well with the Disney style meaning colourful, playful and elegant.
I really like it a lot and I am wondering if we will see all the castles replaced by the newer ones.


What's your thought on the new castle(s)?
