PHOTOS: Painting Begins on Cinderella Castle Makeover at the Magic Kingdom

As you walk into the Magic Kingdom today, your views (and photos) of Cinderella Castle may be slightly marred by the sight of numerous high-reaches sprawled across its facade, as painting for the castle’s grand makeover has officially begun.

Here’s the sight as you walk up on Main Street. Work will be ongoing throughout the day, with performances of Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire reduced to only afternoon showings so as to not interrupt the daily progress.

Workers are applying the first layers of paint on the castle facade. We assume the first layers will be mainly primer or test patches.

In the weeks leading up to today, the castle’s moat was fully drained to allow for the high reaches to enter the space.

These blue turrets are set to be painted a darker shade of royal blue.

Here we see the first layers of rose gold paint going on.

Work on the castle’s expansive makeover is set to be finished by the end of summer. Are you looking forward to seeing the final finished product?
