PHOTOS: “EARidescent” Turrets Being Repainted Back to Blue on Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom
Last year, Cinderella Castle in Magic Kingdom received a new look. Most notably, gold accents were added and the castle’s white section was painted pink. Additionally, the turrets and roofs were painted a brighter, shimmering blue. We’ve noticed recently, however, that the blue is already being repainted.
The difference is obvious when looking at most of the turrets on the castle’s first level versus the roofing in the center front and on the second level.
The roofing that has yet to be repainted looks more purple and has some crisscrossed lines that were either purposefully very subtle when added last year or are the older paint shining through.
The freshly painted turrets are darker, and have a nicer shine to them. This is more the classic look of Cinderella Castle.
We would guess the new round of painting is an effort to make Cinderella Castle look its best before “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” kicks off later this year.
