New Details on the Cinderella Castle Makeover at Disney World

Cinderella Castle is what most people probably think of when they think of the Magic Kingdom or Disney World. This year, the castle will be undergoing a little makeover in celebration of the 70th anniversary of Cinderella!

While we already reported on news of the castle refurbishment earlier this week, Disney has now released some new details on what’s to come for the iconic castle!

According to ABC News, the Imagineers looked to the works of French author Charles Perrault, the creator of the original story of Cinderella, as well as French castles of the Middle Ages for inspiration when they initially set out to design Cinderella Castle.

The renovation will keep the structure intact, but will focus more on aesthetics and color of the 189-foot tall icon, including the towers and the gargoyles. The shingles will receive a deeper shade of blue. Behind the gatehouse, which is known as the inner curtain, the body of the castle will be given a soft-pink hue, almost reminiscent of the shade on Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland.

The castle will also be getting gold trim added to the towers, gatehouse, spires…pretty much everywhere! While the refurbishment is ongoing, you will still be able to watch shows like the “Happily Ever After” fireworks.

  1. Please not so much pink. My husband loves to take pictures. I have soooo many pictures of the overly pink cake castle. Terrible. Therefore down play the pink.
    Thank you.

  2. The gold and the blue will be pretty I think, but the pink….I guess time will tell. I’m more of a fan of just leaving the icon as it is!

  3. For all the love in heaven, please PLEASE do not make Cinderella’s castle into another horrible birthday cake. No icing. No candles. No nonsense. Pink is pushing the envelope here.
