Q: Is the castle that is shown before most Disney movies modeled after any of the Disney theme park castles or is it a combination of a few?

A: It is a stylized version of the Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty Castles. Viewers often chuckle because the water effect makes it look as if you would have to swim to get into the castle.
