Go on a holiday with a difference by visiting locations that have inspired some of the most well-loved Disney films ever made.
Mr Fredricksen wanted to set up home in Paradise Falls – a place his wife had longed to visit. The stunning location was based on the world’s highest waterfall, Angel Falls in Venezuela.
The Palace in the much-loved Tangled was based on the Mont Saint-Michel in Normandy, France.
The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Most obvious is the cathedral where Quasimodo lived. Notre Dame is based on one of the world’s most famous cathedrals – Notre Dame.
Cinderella’s Castle
This fairy tale castle was based on the very real Neuschwansein Castle in Bavaria. It was built by King Ludwig II in 1886 as his own personal private refuge.
