Disney announced back in February that Cinderella Cast was going to receive a royal makeover in honor of the Magic Kingdom’s 50th anniversary. As you can see in the concept art below, the castle will add rich new colors along with a regal gold trim.
Cranes surround the castle as crews begin the refurbishment process. These arms are raised and lowered throughout the day, so you may have opportunities to get uninterrupted pictures.
The first phase seems to be concentrating on general cleaning and adding the vibrant blue paint to the spires. The gold accents will come later in the project.
There is quite a dramatic difference between the original light blue color and the new dark blue color. It looks rather stunning in the bright Florida sun. Imagine how the gold trim will shimmer and sparkle.
There is no set time frame for the project to be completed, but stay tuned to Passport to the Parks for more progress.
