The most famous castle
If you wonder why the heck do I have to make mention of every thing in my countdowns, well, I hate to left some thing just like that, so here it is:
24. Mulan's soldier tent
Of course that this one is the last. It was made by poor Mulan who just joined the army and wasn't totally herself. It is small, uncomfortable, it looks like it's going to ruin every moment. Oh, and it's right next to pond, so it probably stinks and there are mosquitoes too.
23. Pocahontas's longhouse
Someone told me that proper term is longhouse, I hope it is. So what to say, ordinary wooden house with one room, sculls as a decoration, and with a hole in a roof so yeah, I see what fanpopers meant when they eliminated this one, no one wants to wake up and see racoon eating their cookies.
22. English camp
So what makes these tents better than Mulan's is that they are more comfortable and built better, so they don't have to worry will their tent fall on their heads while they are sleeping. But the thing is Mulan was taking bath and her tent was situated next to little pond, these guys probably didn't take a bath and they were situated next to river, sweaty and stinky after all that digging, so mosquito invasion would be much worse.
I have no idea why people dislike this one. Probably because they don't want to get stroke in case Ursula shows up. And those slimy little things on entrance aren't really nice. But you have to admit, there are cool decoration, plus all those potions, they can always be helpful.
20. Maleficent's castle
Fans were quite divided her, while someone likes it, there are, apparently, lots of them that find this place scary. I think it's really great. Apparently, for the mistress of all evil, there should be a place that kinda reminds of hell. And is there better way to do it than make stone, middle aged, pointed castle on the edge of abyss.
But if that's not scary enough add some creepy gargoyles. Yeah, that's medieval view of damnation, and Disney knew how to apply it to freak out the audience and give a subtle message: "Be good kids, or you will finish on Forbidden mountains"
19. Mama Odie's cottage
Well, I guess boat stuck on a tree (somehow, I guess it was really rainy), isn't that impressive to the voters. Besides it's rotten, it also has bad location. It's in the middle of bayou, so there are even more mosquitoes. And how is that old woman supposed to climb up to that tree?
But, besides that, this residence, just like previous one, has its symbolics. Opposing to the Facilier's dark voodoo magic and his Friends on the other side, Mama Odie's magic is suppose to represent good magic, so it's represented with light colors and with game of lights. Her house is, so, full of glassy thing and some crazy details to show the goo side of the magic.
18. Tiana's house
My personal least favorite somehow beat those great villain's residences. What can I say, it's boring. After you see twenty houses that are exactly the same like this one, it can't be special to you. It situated in poor neighborhood, and the house itself isn't very special.
17. Aladdin's hideaway
I really like this one, it reminds of my playhouse. It looks like it's situated on the top of some really high, ruined building. It has many neat baubles that looks like he picked up from somewhere and brought into his home. Everything is so lovely and looks really domestic, not to mention the great view.
Other than that, this place totally fits Aladdin. It looks poor, but it's cute. He can come and leave whenever he wants, and in case he had to move somewhere else he doesn't have to pack a lot.
16. Belle's house
Many years before Maurice was born, it was probably nice, typical family house in medieval age style. And than he came and quite violently added few chimneys,lots of gadgets and mill. House is supposed to represent Belle and Maurice- lonely, separated from the other people, and little weird. House itself is really nice, interior is great, and it has beautiful landscape around it.
15. Dwarfs's cottage
Another house in medieval style and one of my personal favorites made it to the number 15. This place is house of my dreams. It's quiet, in the middle of the forest, it has brook and cute bridge over it.
What's really special is the inside of the house in totally Gothic style. Every little piece of furniture is specially worked out. Every little chair has its fretwork, there is fretwork on stairs, on columns, doors and beds. My favorite are organs with little animals on it.
14. Aurora's cottage in the forest
Middle age, again. Very creative, the tree is growing over cottage, and it's also used as a support to house and stairs. It also has brook and a mill. But people don't like it very much. I think the problem is lack of color and light, and there are part of the roof where's no straw, so I guess it ain't nice when it's raining.
13. Prince's castle
Oh, yes. Mysterious just like it's owner, we don't know much about this castle. We can see that outlines are nice, but there is nothing more. The main question is: Is it suppose to be in the distance or is it castle in the sky? Well, I believe it's distance, Prince isn't cool enough to have castle in the sky.
12. Cinderella's house
Really nice piece of architecture. It has great exterior, lovely interior and great location. It's on the top of the height, so you can see whole kingdom. It has backyard full of animals and it has tower! Could it possibly be cooler than it is?
Inside it has lovely wallpapers, mostly blue with patterns. There are lots of rooms with really high ceiling. Furniture is great and looks very comfortable. My favorite is Lucifer's bad, it's such a cute detail and it shows how much effort is put in a design of Cinderella's house.
11. Charlotte's house
This lovely Victorian house really shows the wealth of Charlotte's father. It has great and big backyard. It's surrounded by trees and has gazebo.
In the inside it's overloaded with many furniture. It's mostly pink and beige so it shows that main word has Charlotte and that everything she wishes must be fulfilled . That's why it's filled with toys, cushions and even pets.
