18 Disney Movie Locations That Actually Exist In Real Life.

The magic of Disney movies extended beyond the characters and the larger than life tales. Simply put, a fairytale wouldn't be a fairytale without an incredible setting. We all remember Sleeping Beauty's castle and the sultan's palace in Aladdin -- but did you know that those locations and more were inspired by real places?

Below are 18 incredible Disney locations that you can actually visit in real life. The images we saw in Disney films were inspired by places around the world that actually exist, and you'll be mind-blown when you see how similar the real places are to those in the magical realm. The real version the Evil Queen's castle from Snow White is absolutely stunning.

Neuschwanstein Castle, Bavaria, Germany

The Royal Castle in Sleeping Beauty was inspired by Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria, Germany. It's known as the fairytale castle, and was built by Ludwig II of Bavaria. It certainly looks like something out oif a fairytale, doesn't it?

Alsace, France

This small village square in Beauty And The Beast was inspired by Alsace, an area of North-West France. The architecture there is primarily German, and the blend of German and French cultures in Alsace reflects in the food and people as well.

Mont Saint-Michel, Normandy, France

The Kingdom of Corona in Disney's Tangled was inspired by this beautiful place. The island was temporarily cut off from tidal waters, making it an easily defensible place in case of a threat. Today, the spot is wildly popular with tourists -- and not just Disney fans.
