This week, Cinderella Castle had the last piece of its makeover puzzle completed for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary. Decked with gold bunting, a massive crest was the candle on top.
The World’s Most Magical Celebration Details
“The World’s Most Magical Celebration” will officially kickoff on October 1, 2021, but guests have been seeing the EARidescent touches on the castle for a few months. The crest in its EARidescent and gold style, is the perfect touch to the already-magical park icon.
In addition to the sparkly Cinderella Castle makeover, all three additional theme park icons will be glowing with sparkly lights (I can’t wait to see Spaceship Earth in Epcot twinkling!)for the super special Walt Disney World 50th anniversary.
Last February, we were all treated to a few 50th anniversary details and, little by little, more details are emerging. Additionally, theme park guests should be on the lookout for “pixie dust” moments when castmembers spread the joy and love to make visits even more magical.
Will there be more decorations around the castle and the hub area? We can only hope!
Cinderella Castle Makeover through the Months
When we visited Magic Kingdom the day it officially reopened in 2020, it was cool to walk through the castle and see its blocks numbered, almost like a paint-by-number painting.
But by the time February 2021 rolled around, all that was left to place were the gold bunting and crest.
