Disney Structure / Weenie Heights

I've collated together the heights of over forty of Disney's most iconic structures from all of its parks (and waterparks) globally, and arranged them below in height order from largest to smallest.

Now some of this information seems off to me, but it's the best I've found. For example, the Cinderella Castles at the Magic Kingdom and Tokyo Disneyland are apparently the same, and places also say that the castle at Tokyo Disneyland and Mount Prometheus at Tokyo DisneySea are both the same height, but whilst Florida's castle is 189 feet, sources say Mount Prometheus is 168 feet - so the Tokyo castle's height is disputed. If anyone can offer some clarification that would be much appreciated!

Disneyland Paris's Big Thunder Mountain is listed as 197 feet, and other sources say it's 200ft, but I very much doubt this - it is much more probably around 104 feet, roughly equal to the other versions. I also do not know the heights of either Indiana Jones et le Temple du Peril or Raging Spirits (although the track height is around 16m/52ft).

Update

I did some research and it seems the main reason for the height discrepency is that Florida's castle height includes the layer of utilidors beneath it. Effectively, its height from the castle base is only 167-170 feet (the artificial ground level), not 189 feet (which is from the original ground level), matching Mount Prometheus. Interestingly to me, this means that Florida's castle is practically the same height as Disneyland Paris's (167 feet), despite the common thought that it's bigger.
