A close look at the towers reveals that the blue spires have been repainted after the decorations were removed.

After the decorations were removed, the blue was faded and uneven in some areas.

Before the 50th anniversary celebration officially began, Cinderella Castle was completely repainted with new shades of royal blue, pink, and gray.

The moat around Cinderella Castle was drained so crew members could remove the 50th anniversary decorations and repaint the turrets.

The moat has yet to be completely refilled as work wraps up in the area.

While Disney has made no definitive announcements, it seems the pink and royal blue color scheme will be staying on long-term.


If you long for that classic look of Cinderella Castle though, it does still exist at Tokyo Disneyland.

The 50th Anniversary celebration at Walt Disney World Resort officially ended on March 31, 2023. Since then, Walt Disney World has been celebrating 100 years of The Walt Disney Company.

Disney100 Anniversary Celebration

Across almost all six resorts and on a global scale, Disney is celebrating “100 Years of Wonder.” This celebration is the largest event ever thrown by The Walt Disney Company. The heart of the celebration takes place at Disneyland Resort, as it is “The Place Where it All Began.”

The party kicked off on January 27, 2023, in Disneyland Resort, and is expected to last through July 2024.

At Walt Disney World, Disney100 will mostly be celebrated at EPCOT with Mickey and Minnie in their new platinum outfits. A new Spectacle of Light will debut on Spaceship Earth, and in late 2023, a new Disney100 nighttime spectacular will replace EPCOT Forever. This show was brought back after the end of Harmonious in early April but has only returned as an interim replacement.

In addition, Journey of Water, CommuniCore Hall and Plaza, World Celebration Garden, and Dreamers Point featuring the “Dreamer” statue of Walt Disney are all scheduled to open in late 2023 at EPCOT.

Platinum Disney100 decorations were installed at all four Walt Disney World theme parks and at Disney Springs.

Collectible Disney100 medallions and Disney100 pressed pennies are available throughout the resort.
