A major refurbishment is scheduled to take place on Cinderella Castle in Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World within the next couple of weeks and is expected to last until mid-Summer.
With Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary scheduled for 2021, most of the parks have been seeing major changes and new rides. Magic Kingdom has pretty much been spared other than construction of the Tron Rollercoaster in Tomorrowland (Disney World Railroad and Tomorrowland Speedway have taken the brunt.).
Disney announced today that the Icon of all Disney World parks, Cinderella Castle, will start refurbishment within the next couple of weeks. Disney claims that the work on the castle will not interrupt any of the shows or fireworks that are held at Cinderella Castle daily.
Disney released an artist’s rendering of what the completed work will look like. The majors change will be the pinkish hue added to the structure along with golden highlights very similar to Disneyland in California’s Castle.
We are disappointed with the extremely late notice of this construction by Disney. Most of those that will be visiting Walt Disney World this Spring and Summer had booked trips months ago knowing that there was MAJOR construction throughout Walt Disney World. To have Disney spring this upon guests that may not be able to view the icon on of the Disney Empire is not leaving many long time fans of the Mouse too happy.
