We’re still feeling the excitement over the recent announcement that Cinderella Castle will begin a massive refurbishment in the coming weeks in preparation for Disney World’s 50th Anniversary in 2021.
This transformation, which will begin soon and continue through the summer, will result in a very noticeable difference to the castle’s appearance, and we have more details to share about its new look!
Jason Kirk, Vice President of Magic Kingdom, has provided more insight on what the transformation will entail and what guests can expect to see when the new castle design is complete.
As we mentioned in our previous article covering the announcement, the shingles of the castle “appear to have a deeper, richer hue of blue“, much like what Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland received when it underwent its refurbishment last year. The article goes on to describe that the “inner curtain” of the castle will be transforming into a “soft rose-pink” hue. So, it has now been confirmed that the castle will indeed be pink! This sure sounds a lot like Sleeping Beauty Castle, but only time will tell what the final look will be!
The article also emphasized that no stage shows or other attractions surrounding the castle would be impacted by the transformation. No word yet on how extensive the construction will be and if the castle will be covered in scrim like Project Stardust in Disneyland. We will be sure to keep you in the know as we learn more about this renovation.
