PHOTOS: Spire Returns with Minor Changes to Cinderella Castle at Tokyo Disneyland (1/7/20)

We’re halfway through the work on Cinderella Castle! It’s so exciting, and I can’t wait to see my beautiful castle looking better than ever! A few things have changed since we checked in last month, including the return of the top spire! Let’s take a quick look, shall we?

Taking a glance from the front, it’s almost immediately noticeable. There’s not a huge blue gap anymore! I seriously wonder how tall the crane must be to get the spire in and out of the scaffolding.

There’s a bit of a closer look.

The amount of scaffolding itself hasn’t changed. The covering is also still at the same level, and I presume that’s where it will stay through April. What I want to know is if the lower half of the castle is getting any love? We’re only halfway through, so there’s still time.

It’s a bit more prominent from the side. You can really see the gold at the top from the sun-facing angle!

Even if it’s half-covered, this view of the castle is still breathtaking in my opinion. Many Guests are still taking pictures on the bridge despite the castle being covered. The walls around the front and back are also fairly popular photo spots!

The only area where lower-level work is ongoing is around the back. If work has started at this point, I’d bet it’s a sign that more work on the lower section of the castle is coming. It’s been several years since the castle has been repainted, so it’s probably in order at this point!

And that’s the latest on the Cinderella Castle renovation! It’s difficult to gauge changes since it’s covered in scaffolding, but we’re still keeping our eyes out! And we’ll be sure to let you know what changes we spot! The refurbishment ends in exactly three months, on April 7th! What are your thoughts?
