More Painting Updates Spotted on Cinderella Castle in the Magic Kingdom
As magical enhancements are well underway on Cinderella Castle in the Magic Kingdom just in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary, we spotted even more changes to the paint scheme on the Castle today.
Over a year ago, Disney announced that Cinderella Castle would receive a new color scheme to celebrate the 70th Anniversary of Cinderella. However, many of us were also convinced that the updated colors would carry over in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary as well – we were right!
The new paint colors started going up on Cinderella Castle right before Disney Parks around the world shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The painting stopped while the Parks were closed for a few months but resumed shortly before the Magic Kingdom reopened and was almost complete when it reopened in July 2020.
Today, some turrets on the left side of the Castle are a more deeper blue compared to the other turrets. The other ones almost look purplish in person while the freshly painted ones now look like a deeper royal blue. They appear to have a glossier finish to them too.
This repainting makes me wonder if it is actually a new color paint or if it needed to be painted after basking months in the hot, Florida sun.
This is how the turrets on the right side of the castle currently appear:

Here’s also a good side-by-side comparison:
Yesterday, we reported that first decoration from it’s 50th Anniversary decor package was added to Cinderella Castle. We saw another one installed today as seen in the photo below.
The moat around Cinderella Castle has been drained as work continues. In addition to a paint update on Cinderella Castle and decorations being hung, the Castle Stage is also currently undergoing a refurbishment.
All of the updated painting and decor installation on Cinderella Castle is scheduled to be completed when Walt Disney World kicks off their 50th Anniversary Celebrations on October 1 of this year! The Celebrations will go on for a whopping 18 months!
