We’re back at Disney World for the first time since mid-March now that select resorts have reopened today!
And while the theme parks aren’t slated to reopening until next month, we’ve had the chance to go exploring and spot a few changes since our last visit to the hotels. That’s where we noticed this BIG change that was pretty hard to miss!
As you may recall, Cinderella Castle had just started to receive her royal makeover shortly before the parks closed. We found out the Magic Kingdom icon would be getting a new rosy-pinkish paint job! Here’s how she looked when we saw her last!
The new paint job was going up quickly, however, it was put on hold along with the rest of Disney World’s construction projects shortly after the closures occurred. But not too long ago, we found out the refurbishment had resumed and today we got to see Cinderella Castle once more with our own EYES!
We’ve booked a stay at Disney’s Contemporary Resort which overlooks Magic Kingdom. And even though we can’t hop on the monorail and run over to Cinderella Castle right now because A.) the monorail isn’t running yet and B.) the park isn’t scheduled to reopen until July 11th, we’re VERY impressed by what we can SEE from a distance!
And you guys, it’s PINK. Like really salmony-pink! The blues and very bright and you can even spot a lot of the golden details. Maybe it’s just wishful thinking (like when you wish upon a star!) but it certainly looks like the Cinderella Castle refurbishment could be completed VERY soon!
We gotta say, the castle looks much more reminiscent of Disneyland’s pink Sleeping Beauty Castle (which also recently underwent a refurbishment). And the pictures hardly do the major change justice y’all. The color is VERY bright and different!
We’ll continue to monitor its progress and provide you with more updates soon!
