Disney Has Finally Updated Cinderella Castle, But Fans Are Still Unhappy With Its Appearance

When it comes to the theme parks of Walt Disney World Resort, each one has its own signature structure welcoming Guests into the Park and creating a symbol for the Disney Park itself.

In Animal Kingdom it’s the beloved Tree of Life, In EPCOT it’s the Spaceship Earth attraction, and over in Hollywood Studios, it’s the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror attraction.

But in Magic Kingdom, it’s none other than the gorgeous Cinderella Castle.

The Cinderella Castle is so important because it’s not only the symbol of Magic Kingdom, but it’s also the symbol often associated with Walt Disney World Resort itself.

So, when any minor changes are made to the Disney Park’s signature structure, it’s big news.  Disney news, that is.

Not long ago, Cinderella Castle was mainly white and blue, creating a recognizable look that differed from other Disney Park castles.

In honor of Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary, however, Walt Disney Imagineering gave the castle a total makeover, making it pink instead of blue. To top it off, the castle’s iconic clock was covered with a huge medallion reading “50” to commemorate the once-in-a-lifetime event.

Now that the most magical celebration on Earth has come to an end, the 50th-anniversary medallion has come down too…but the pink has stayed, much to many fans’ dismay.

However, the top comment with the most likes reads, “now can they paint it back to white and blue[?]”

As it turns out, most fans of Magic Kingdom still miss the signature blue and white look.

Where do you stand on the issue? Do you prefer the new pink look? Or would you rather have the previous white look?
