Disney Imagineer Gives Additional Details on Cinderella Castle’s 50th Anniversary Makeover
I don’t know about you, but I am still amped over the details that were just revealed last week for Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary Celebration that will kick off on October 1, 2021! Today, thanks to Disney Imagineer, Zack Riddley, we are learning even more about what the flagship landmark of Walt Disney World, Cinderella Castle, will look like once it’s magical transformation is complete in time for the 50th Anniversary Celebrations begin!
If you are a fan of the Mary Blair aesthetic, you are going to love Cinderella’s Castle for Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary celebration! In Riddley’s Instagram post, he notes that the “Castle will receive the royal treatment inspired by the original elements featured in Mary Blair’s vision in the classic Cinderella film – shimmering pearls, jewels, and ribbons in royal blues and iridescent golds will wrap its turrets and towers in all directions!”
Here is the entire quote from Riddley’s Instagram post on Cinderella Castle’s 50th Anniversary Celebration makeover:
As part of the exciting announcements for Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary, we released – for the very first time – our brand new décor package for Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom.
Since opening day in October 1971, Cinderella Castle at the heart of the Magic Kingdom park has been an iconic symbol of joy and happiness for people the world over. For “The World’s Most Magical Celebration,” Cinderella Castle will receive the royal treatment inspired by original elements featured in Mary Blair’s vision in the classic Cinderella film – shimmering pearls, jewels, and ribbons in royal blues and iridescent golds will wrap its turrets and towers in all directions. Above the castle gate, a dazzling 50th anniversary crest warmly welcomes Guests to join the festivities.
Our Imagineers developed this new décor as part of the larger Cinderella Castle transformation revealed last year – with new colors, gold detailing and vibrant hues that celebrate this enduring icon. These designs were developed together, so that the combined effect will be nothing short of spectacular. We’re excited to have this full vision introduced to the world and to reveal more about our design inspiration and innovative approach to bringing this vision to life.
