One of the most well known, and smile inspiring, structures in the U.S. is getting an updated look in response to the 70th anniversary of the film that inspired it.
Walt Disney World’s Cinderella Castle is going to be getting a “bold” new look in the near future as Jason Kirk, vice president of Magic Kingdom Park, said in an announcement on Monday. “Cinderella first transformed into a princess 70 years ago this week when the animated classic was released,” Kirk said, “and ever since, her courage and kindness have been inspiring guests and cast members alike.”
The post continues on to say that work will begin in the coming weeks, continuing through summer, but that it won’t impact some of the attractions in that area of the park like the Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire and Happily Ever After shows.
The concept art for the castle, available on the blog post, shows the castle will remain much the same; but with a new brighter, possibly pinker, exterior with refreshed blues on the rooftops and quite a few ornate gold accents.
It seems the “Most Magical Place on Earth” wants to become even more magical for its guests.
