I'm sure someone has puzzled through this before, but there's one aspect of this I'm just not getting.  It's clear (Paarfi states it explicitly) that teleportation was basically impossible before the Interregnum (well, not impossible, perhaps, but he says there were no reports of any successful attempts) ... and yet the Dragonlords had all of those floating castles, which Paarfi also makes a big deal about.  And Vlad, upon his first visit to Castle Black, comments that the only way to get there was to teleport.

So, umm, how did all of those pre-Interregnum Dragons get to and from their castles?

I just don't have any answer, and I'd love to hear what people suggest.  The only thing I've come up with is that the Dragonlords were keeping their teleportation a secret, but that doesn't make a lot of sense, since surely they would have wanted a few visitors from time to time ...
