In case you haven’t yet heard, Cinderella Castle, which is the iconic centerpiece for Magic Kingdom park at Walt Disney World Resort, is getting a complete makeover!
Back in February, Disney announced that in honor of this year’s 70th anniversary of the Walt Disney animated film Cinderella, the castle in Magic Kingdom will be repainted with a gorgeous pink painting and gold detailing.
Though, just a few weeks after the announcement was made, construction work was halted when Walt Disney World had to, unfortunately, close its gates due to the current health pandemic. On the bright side, construction has since started up again and workers have been able to resume the makeover as we’ve been reporting over these last few weeks that the painting on Cinderella Castle has made substantial progress.
And now, just a few days before Magic Kingdom officially reopens to its guests on July 11, the Cinderella Castle makeover is practically complete!
In the tweet below, you can see the beautiful new pink paint shimmering in the Florida sunlight.
Some fans are excited about this new update to the Magic Kingdom icon, while others are a bit more hesitant. But we just can’t wait for the day to see it in person ourselves so we can be our own judges!
