The iconic Cinderella Castle at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Park is to undergo a major transformation in forthcoming months.
To mark the 70th anniversary of when Disney’s animated film ‘Cinderella’ was released, Disney shared a concept image of the new-look Cinderella Castle.
Talking about the transformation, Jason Kirk, vice president of Magic Kingdom, said: “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.
“We are 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.”
Alterations to the castle will commence in the coming weeks and are expected to continue until the summer.
The shows currently running at Walt Disney World including ‘Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire’ and ‘Happily Ever After’ will continue.
Hong Kong Disneyland is currently making alternations to its Sleeping Beauty Castle, including the installation of Disney Princess-themed towers.
