Big news from Walt Disney World Resort – Cinderella Castle is about to get even more magical!

Just like how Cinderella herself transformed into a princess when the animated classic was released 70 years ago this week, her namesake castle at the heart of Walt Disney World Resort will soon be made over with bold, shimmering and regal enhancements befitting the park so many hold so near and dear to their hearts. We are so excited to also share this beautiful concept image with you which shows the castle featuring a brand-new color scheme created by Walt Disney Imagineering for Cinderella Castle.

Above is an incredible concept image of what the newly enhanced Cinderella Castle will look like when work is completed.

Starting today and continuing through summer, you may notice this exciting work taking place as these stunning enhancements begin. But don’t worry! You’ll still get to catch all of your castle favorites like Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire and Happily Ever After.

The construction will be done in sections so guests should always be able to get some good pictures of the castle without construction vehicles or gear in the way.

At times some walkways in or around the castle may be closed but others should be open. The construction will not have any impact on Cinderella’s Royal Table Restaurant or the Cinderella Suite inside.

Like most Disney Park projects, there is no specific date for when it will be finished at this time.
