There are a total of 27 towers on the castle, each numbered 1-29-- tower numbers 13 and 17 were deleted before construction when it was realized that they could not really be seen from anywhere in the park, due mainly to the other Fantasyland buildings. The tower with the clock in front is 10, the tallest is 20. 23 is the other golden-roofed tower.When originally built, there was an "apartment" inside the castle, but was used by telephone operators of the resort. Then left empty for quite sometime. And then "reopened" the apartment as the Cinderella Castle Suite in 2006 as apart of the Year of a Million Dreams, one of the prizes of the year.
In Fall 2006, the castle was repainted to a off-whiteish, with a slight touch of soft pink and darker blue turret roofs.Tokyo Disneyland's caslte is generally considered to be a carbon copy of the Magic Kingdom's castle. However, from 1986-2006, a popular walk-through attraction called the "Cinderella Castle Mystery Tour" was featured within the castle. In June 2006, the castle was repainted, to differentiate it from Cinderella Castle at the Magic Kingdom. The castle now has gold trimmings, the rooftops have been painted a different shade of blue, and the white stone of the turrets now has a tan/dirty-pink color.There is one difference between Magic Kingdom and Tokyo Disneyland's castles, and its the name. In Magic Kingdom, the castle is Cinderella's Castle, with an S. Whereas Tokyo Disneyland's castle is Cinderella Castle, without an S, no one really knows why.
