One of Disney World’s 50th Anniversary Decorations Falls From Cinderella Castle
The Crowning Achievement of Disney World’s 50th Anniversary makeover is the decorations adorning Cinderella Castle at the Magic Kingdom.
The decorations started going up this Spring and feature stunning banners, hanging garlands, shimmering adornments and more. All of the décor features Disney’s 50th Anniversary Earidescent colorway which is a whimsical combination of golden, purple blue and pink.
Disney has said previously said that the Castle Decorations are durable and are expected to remain on the Castle throughout the duration of the 50th Anniversary. The celebration officially kicks off on October 1, 2021 and will run into 2022.
That’s why its surprising that we are mere months into the newly decorated castle and already the adornments are showing some wear and tear.
Earlier this week, reports started surfacing that one of the blue jewels adorning the ribbons on the turrets took a fall right into the Castle moat.
As you can see from the image above, what remains is a rather unsightly brown base with what looks like a very small amount of Velcro or adhesive to keep the jewel in place.
Days later, no attempt has been made to fix or replace the missing jewel.
Now to be fair there is water filling the moat surrounding the castle. When the decorations where initially being put on the castle, this moats needed to be completely drained and cranes brought in.
That means that replacing this decor is a bit harder than it looks.
Though all of the other castle decorations due still remain intact, this mishap is definitely drawing concern from Disney insiders worried about how the decor will withstand the high winds of Florida’s hurricane season.
It was assumed that the decorations were “hurricane proof” but as you can see from the image below, it doesn’t look like the decorations are securely in place.
This is definitely a story that we’ll continue to follow closely here at MickeyBlog.
We do hope the blue jewel that fell from the Cinderella Castle will be replaced soon as we head into Disney World’s busy Summer period.
