    I said it was a good secret because it does look like real stone on the castle and many people just assume that it is stone.
    We had a great time at the Caribbean Beach. Hope to go next year with all the kids and grandkids!!!

    I wish there was an option for "Knew it already" without "Lame" in front of it.
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.

    It isn't a lame secret, just not a secret to those of us with a unique obsession with WDW

    Did you know that the castle is 189 feet tall because Walt didn't want to put a red light on the top to warn passing planes? By Florida law, if a structure is 190 feet tall or greater, they must have a blinking red light on the highest point. Walt didn't want to ruin the magic, so he made it 1 foot shorter.

    I think you are both right. I'm pretty sure that the law at the time the castle was built was 190ft but was later changed to 200ft.

    Yes the law was changed later on...but when the castle was first built it was 190ft.

    I did know that, but as you said those of us with an unnatural obsession with Disney know lots of little things like that. Not lame, just knew it.
