Big changes are about to come to the Magic Kingdom. Cinderella Castle is about to become even more magical inside Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. In honor of the 70th anniversary of the Disney Animation classic film “Cinderella,” the princess’ namesake castle at the heart of Magic Kingdom Park will receive bold, shimmering and regal enhancements. Based on the images shared below, they are adding on a lot of gold trim to the castle. The royal makeover begins in the coming weeks and continues throughout summer.
Above is a look at the concept art for what the makeover will look like when it’s complete. We were all expecting a castle upgrade for Disney World’s upcoming 50th anniversary in 2021. It will be interesting to see if this is just the first phase of a special 50th-anniversary castle or if the golden additions will disappear before the anniversary next year.
I have been visiting the parks annually since my parents first brought me at just a year old. Recently I was able to fulfill my life long dream of being a Florida local and moved from the wintery Northeast to the sunshine and fun of central Florida. Now I am hoping to share my Disney knowledge with you so you can have the best vacation possible!
