Vote of the week: The best Disney castle?

In the beginning, there was:
And, then, there were:
Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty's Castle
The Magic Kingdom's Cinderella's Castle
Tokyo Disneyland's Cinderella's Castle
Disneyland Paris's Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant
Hong Kong Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty's Castle
The original castle in Anaheim's Disneyland follows the Neuschwanstein model, which Disney copied again for its most recent castle, at Hong Kong Disneyland. Disney's second castle, at Florida's Walt Disney World, adopted a different look, which was copied almost identically for Tokyo.
Paris' castle is the only one without a twin, showing a blend of the other castle's colors and styles. It also the only castle, for the moment, with an attraction inside. (Anaheim's castle will reopen its walk-through later this year.)
