Fairy Tales do Come True!

Fairy Tale Castle

I am so excited to announce to all of your little princesses and knights-men that fairy tales really do come true! Okay, for all of you naysayers out there, let me take a minute of your time to prove it.

Brought to you by the Dallas Arboretum, welcome to Fairy Tale Castles! On display in the beautiful grounds of the Arboretum are seven real live fairy tale castles! These castles have been built by local contractors and architects to help your children’s imagination come to life!

The Beauty and the Beast Castle calls for a grand entrance from Belle to meet the dastardly beast! The Little Mermaid Castle will have you reliving the classic tale by Hans Christian Andersen, with Ariel and King Triton welcoming guests to their fabulous home!

Aladdin, Rapunzel and many others invite you to explore their homes as your child’s mind realizes the beauty of walking through their favorite fairy tales.

Maps are available at the Information Desk at the entrance to Dallas Blooms, “It’s a Fairy Tale World,” located inside the Arboretum. These enchanting castles are on display from March 5 through December 31, 2011.

Only one rule to follow, you must bring your camera! Your prince and princess will be wide-eyed and in awe of the splendor of the real-live fairy tale castles they’ve only visited in their dreams.
