The center icon of Disneyland, Sleeping Beauty Castle, is still very much under refurbishment. However, guests will be happy to hear that a peek at what is going on behind those Castle walls is finally being revealed.
Back in January, Disney provided details of the changes coming to Sleeping Beauty Castle, as well as what can be expected of Project Stardust. The goal of Project Stardust is to enhance areas throughout the Park to maximize guest comfort and access in preparation for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Part of these enhancements includes changing curbs to improve access with wheelchairs, strollers, and making sure people don’t fall off when it’s crowded.
The curb in front of the Castle now slowly inclines down to meet the road along Main Street. The raised curb has disappeared entirely in this section to the right, and we expect something similar may be taking place on the left side. New brickwork has been added, too, matching the new brickwork added outside of Emporium and Disney Showcase. The addition of a newly planted tree ties in with the new brick, giving this area a familiar but fresh look.
Sleeping Beauty Castle has been under refurbishment for almost three months now. And guests, including us, have been anxious for the return of this beloved Park icon. With this new reveal, we’re hoping the rest isn’t too far behind.
Are you enjoying these Project Stardust enhancements at the Disneyland Resort so far?
