Cinderella Castle Before and After Royal Makeover

We want you to get the most out of your ‘luxury villa’ stay in Solterra, Davenport (near Championsgate and just south of the Disney World Resort area). To help out, we have sourced the following blog post to keep you up to date with news from Walt Disney World Resort. Thanks to the guys over at Blog Mickey for the original post...

Work on Cinderella Castle is wrapping up, and we wanted to put together a before and after of the paint job that was dubbed the “Royal Makeover” by Disney. Officially, Disney has announced that the new look is in celebration of the 70th anniversary of Cinderella. That said, it’s possible that the work could be done in conjunction with 50th anniversary celebrations for the Walt Disney World Resort too, but that remains to be seen. We had originally planned on creating a series of posts this summer as we watched the work progress from inside Magic Kingdom, but with work restarting about a month before the theme parks reopened, quite a bit of work was completed before Magic Kingdom reopened. As a reminder, Disney stated that they weren’t going to put scrims up around Cinderella Castle during the work, offering some pretty amazing looks at the work taking place before the theme parks closed in mid-March. During the closures, this was about as good of a view as possible of the work that took place. It was still a jarring look at the repainting, but nothing like what we would have been able to see from inside the park.

With work nearly completed now and the moat getting ready to be refilled, we wanted to put together a series of Cinderella Castle before and after photos that will highlight the changes that Cinderella Castle underwent this summer at Magic Kingdom. Use the slider on the image to see the before photo on the left and the after photo on the right.
