Cinderella Castle has gone through some serious changes this year!
We’re starting to get used to the rose and gold paint job on the Castle, but it’s still pretty new! Now, Disney has filed several permits that might mean MORE work on Cinderella Castle! Let’s take a look!
A few weeks ago, Disney filed a permit for “General Construction” at the address coded to Cinderella Castle. Though that doesn’t give us a lot of detail, we do know that it was filed with Coastal Steel Inc as the contractor so it could mean some structural work.
The same day, a permit was filed for “General Construction” with Icarus Exhibits Inc, a firm that does a lot of work on theming for Disney World. It’s possible they’re looking to touch up existing theming or introduce new elements.
Then today, Disney filed a vague permit to “Provide labor, material, and/or electrical for construction” with their internal construction firm, Buena Vista Construction Company. This is likely to support the above work.
In the past, Disney has implemented overlays on the Castle for big events and the 50th Anniversary next year certainly qualifies as a big event! Of course, Disney hasn’t announced any Castle changes yet, so we won’t know until they do.
We’re not sure what these permits mean for the future of Cinderella Castle! They could mean anything from minor touch-ups to get the Castle looking spick and span, to major renovations ahead of the 50th Anniversary. Any work on the Castle does mean we run the risk of having construction materials in our Cinderella Castle pics, so we’ll especially be keeping an eye out for that.
Stay tuned to DFB as we lookout for more information about this upcoming Castle project. We’ll be sure to let you know as soon as we have more details on what this work is and if/how it will affect your trip!
