It's Happening! Cinderella Castle at Walt Disney World Resort to Receive Royal Makeover

One of the most magical and sometimes (alright, always) emotional moments that occurs when coming into Magic Kingdom is walking up Main Street U.S.A. and seeing that beautiful castle. Many a tear has been shed and millions of pictures taken in front of this iconic landmark. Just as we are celebrating the anniversary of the castle’s namesake, her residence will be getting a little attention as well.

Cinderella first transformed into a princess 70 years ago this week when the animated classic was released—and ever since, her courage and kindness have been inspiring guests and cast members alike. Disney is excited to share that her story has inspired a bold, shimmering and royal makeover of her namesake castle at the heart of Walt Disney World Resort.

You may notice this exciting work taking place as these stunning enhancements begin in the coming weeks, continuing through summer. But don’t worry, Mayne Mafia! We’ll still get to catch our castle favorites like “Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire” and “Happily Ever After.”
