Located about an hour south of Edinburgh, the castlewas built in the fourteenth century and boasts 1,200 acres of grounds. And while the Scottish castle may not be the exact French château that inspired the original movie, the location brings plenty of its own Disney charm.

Embrace your inner Gaston on the castle grounds with falconry, archery, and clay pigeon lessons, or explore the inner workings of the old castle and break into a dance number or two in the dining room that seats 60.

To enter the contest, you must be at least 18 years old, a resident of the United Kingdom, France, Germany, or the U.S., and apply by March 31.
