Disneyland Paris

Hi!

Right now, I'm taking a class on Imagineering at UCLA, and we've been studying all the parks, including Disneyland Paris. The castle there is called "Le Chateau de la Belle au Bois Dormant", which my professors and textbook say means Sleeping Beauty's Castle, like the one in Anaheim. However, it seems to me that it means literally, "The Castle of the Beauty in the Sleeping Woods" because dormant agrees with bois, rather than with la belle. It has been a little while since I studied French, so I'm not sure. Am I crazy?
