“Even Sleeping Beauty’s Castle went a little crazy as the Theme Park was decked out in all its finery to celebrate our 5th anniversary.”

On January 18, 1997, to celebrate the 5th anniversary of Disneyland Paris, Carnival Castle was unveiled. The castle, which is a temporary redesign of the Sleeping Beauty Castle, was styled not only to celebrate the park’s anniversary, but to promote the current Disney animated feature The Hunchback of Notre Dame, based on the book by French author Victor Hugo. The redesign gave the castle itself a variety of jester hats, while Central Plaza was decorated with gargoyles and renamed Gargoyle Square, and Main Street USA was covered in banners.
