Just as we’ve missed you, I know many of you have missed visiting our parks and on your next visit there will be a lot of new things to notice. We have introduced new health and safety measures throughout our parks, like physical distancing and modified restaurant menus, and at Magic Kingdom Park we’ve also continued the royal makeover of our beloved castle.
As I shared earlier this year, Cinderella Castle is currently in the process of receiving a royal makeover and the work is nearly complete! The treasured icon at the heart of Walt Disney World Resort is being made over with bold, shimmering and regal enhancements befitting The Most Magical Place on Earth.
Walt Disney Imagineering helped select the new royal color scheme to give Cinderella Castle its glistening new look. Special elements, such as a sapphire dusting on the blue rooftops and gold trim, were added to make the iconic spires sparkle in the sun. Here is a sneak peek at the regal new look, which you might see our painters applying the final coats of paint and adding the finishing touches to if you’re planning to visit Magic Kingdom Park over the next several weeks:
Cinderella Castle looks more stunning than ever and I can’t wait for you to see the progress we’ve made when we reopen Magic Kingdom Park on July 11.
