The main reason for the construction is to complete repairs to the castle and its roof as a result of damage from the 60th anniversary decorations.

A sign on the construction wall assures visitors that the castle will keep its familiar and favorite blue, grey, and pink color palette.

An article in the OC Register reported Disney plans to spend $300,000 to re-roof the castle and replace fiber-reinforced plastic on the castle’s turrets .

If you’re wondering how you’ll get to Fanstasyland while the castle is closed, you’ll need to use the Big Thunder Mountain Trail or the Parade Route along the Matterhorn.

If you want a photo of the iconic castle it will be best to get that as you enter the park at the “base” of  Main Street, U.S.A. since the top of the castle is not covered up — yet. As the repair work and refurbishment continues even the top of the castle may be covered with scaffolding and or scrims.

  1. Whenever sleeping beauty’s castle is mentioned, I always think of my daughter (who was a frequent WDW visitor) on her first trip to Disneyland. She was shocked to see how much smaller it was than Cinderella’s castle.

    And I’ve read that WDW wanted to make Cinderella’s castle much taller, but FFA regulations prohibited it. Didn’t want a plane or the blimp to run into it.
