PHOTOS: Cinderella Castle Makeover Painting Continues Despite Upcoming Park Closure at the Magic Kingdom

Walt Disney World Resort is set to close after Sunday, March 15th, in response to growing concerns over the Coronavirus. Today is March 13th, so the beat goes on for us here at WDWNT, and we will be providing you continuing updates to the parks over the weekend, as well as any relevant Disney Parks news through the shutdown.

We headed out to the parks this morning to get a glimpse at the progress that is happening rapidly on the makeover of Cinderella Castle.

There was no shortage of people this morning in response to the impending shutdown. The boom arms of the lift towers were stretched high above Cinderella Castle as painting on the turrets continued.

The middle section of the tower that up till now, had a zig-zag patterned design, has been painted over with the new vibrant blue. Most, if not all, of the turrets, have now been painted with the new blue paint.

The deep blue really stood out this morning as the sun was slowly rising over the east barrier of the castle.

We don’t know how this project will progress through the Walt Disney World shutdown that will start next week. Regardless, we are taking every opportunity to gaze on our beloved Cinderella Castle, and we will be ecstatic to see it again once Walt Disney World is back open!
