Cinderella Castle Construction

2. What Superstructure Is The Castle Is Built On Top Of?

 The inner structure of Cinderella Castle is constructed of six hundred tons of steel braced frame construction, and a 10-inch-thick (250 mm) reinforced concrete wall encircles the structure to the full height of the outermost stone-like walls. All of the steel and concrete works are supported on a concrete drilled caisson foundation. This foundation gives the castle a great deal of staying power to withstand hurricane force winds   Photo credit Disney.
