A Palatial “Room” With A View? You Bet!

WDW Trivia! – “Cinderella’s Gauntlet” Continues

Aww, see?  You guys are too smart for me!

How many stones are there in Cinderella Castle in Magic Kingdom?  None!  The whole shell of the building is made, mainly, of fiberglass!  In fact, the castle is actually made of concrete, steel, cement, plaster and fiberglass.  66% of you knew that already, though!  Great work!
