The castle was one of the last buildings to be constructed and is located at the main centre of the island. When the rulers, King Frederic and Queen Arianna's daughter, Princess Rapunzel was born, they made a tradition to release lanterns into the sky to celebrate her birth. Following Rapunzel's kidnapping, the tradition continued every year on her birthday where the entire kingdom sends floating lanterns out into the sky in hopes of one day the lost princess would return. The King and Queen release the first lantern at the castle and soon after the rest of the kingdom release their lanterns. This tradition would persist for several years after Rapunzel's eventual return.
Eighteen years later, Flynn Rider and the Stabbington Brothers break into the castle to steal the crown of the lost princess. By the end of the film, Rapunzel returns to the castle alongside Eugene and is finally reunited with her true parents. In Tangled Ever After, the castle is the main location for Rapunzel and Eugene's wedding and it becomes a major setting in all Tangled films, including it's television series.
The castle serves as a major setting for Tangled: Before Ever After, where Rapunzel and Eugene are now living in the castle together and are settling into their new lives. However, Rapunzel is still struggling to adjust to her new life, feeling overwhelmed and anxious, especially due to her father's overprotective nature, causing her to feel trapped in the confines of her home. Cassandra helps ease Rapunzel's stress by sneaking her out through a secret passage. It also commonly appears throughout the subsequent TV series.
