The last remaining golden ribbon turret topper was finally removed from Cinderella Castle, returning the structure to its pre-Anniversary state.
50th Anniversary Celebration Decorations Removed
Cinderella Castle still had one lingering golden ribbon turret topper as of yesterday. It has since been removed.
The castle will retain its pink color scheme as of now.
For the first time in over two years, there are no 50th Anniversary Celebration decorations on Cinderella Castle.
The moat, which was drained to help facilitate the removal of the castle’s decorations, has not yet been refilled.
A metal staircase is still in place for Cast Members to safely traverse the area. A cherry picker is parked near the castle as well.
On the castle, the 50th anniversary decorations previously included a giant “50” medallion over the clock. This was the first piece of décor removed after the celebration ended. There were also multiple pieces of decorative bunting removed, as well as anniversary banners around Cinderella Castle celebrating the artwork of famous Disney artist Mary Blair.
Though the castle was painted for the celebration before it began, there has been no news of returning it to its previous color scheme. Embellishments continue to be removed; we expect Cast Members will perform touch-ups to the existing paint on Cinderella Castle. They will not perform a complete repainting at this time.
Along with the pink and blue colors of Cinderella Castle, the Golden Fab 50 statues will also remain. These statues respond to guests wearing a MagicBand+ with sounds when a visitor interacts with them. Usually, a simple wave will do the trick. Many of the statues have had seasonal messages or multiple responses to interactions, so be sure to give them a wave the next time you pass one while wearing a MagicBand+.
