Cinderella Castle Moat Completely Drained at Magic Kingdom
Last week, we here at MickeyBlog shared the news that the moat around Cinderella Castle was being drained to make way for construction happening in the area.
Though Disney hasn’t yet given a specific announcement regarding draining the water ways, with all of the upcoming plans for Disney’ Worlds 50th Anniversary we would venture to guess that it has something to do with these preparations.
Those visiting Magic Kingdom in the weeks ahead will only need to look down to release that something is very different!
As you can see from the image above, makeshift damns have even been put into place in some areas to keep water from the area immediately surrounding the castle.
It is not uncommon for Disney to drain these canals occasionally. Most recently this was done for Cinderella Castle’s new 50th Anniversary color scheme paint job.
However, the canals, do lose a bit of their luster without the beautiful castle reflections!
Some ducks could still be seen floating around in the damned off areas.
However, for the most part guests will be able to see wiring, scaffolding and even storage areas in the empty riverbeds.
We’ll continue to track the progress of this work closely.
Readers are encouraged to keep following along with us for further Walt Disney World news and updates.
