  • A forced perspective makes the royal blue-roofed structure seem taller than its actual height.
  • It has 27 towers, formerly 29, until 13th and 17th towers were demolished during construction since they could not be seen clearly by the public. Number 10 has a clock, and the 20th tower is the tallest.
  • There are four more turrets that have been added to the Cinderella Castle to make it more panoramic.
  • It features steel construction, even though the public thinks it is marble.
  • The exterior features hardened fibre that has been reinforced with gypsum plaster.
