ORLANDO, Fla. – Walt Disney World Imagineers began installing some of the special 50th anniversary décor set to adorn Cinderella Castle overnight.
In a short post on Instagram Wednesday, Imagineers talked about the inspiration behind the new “EARidescent” decorations which features new rose gold colors, gold detailing and vibrant hues that pay tribute to the classic Disney animated film, Cinderella.
“This is super exciting. It’s not every day that we get to dress the castle for this like super incredible, very very important celebration,” said Chris Beatty, Creative Portfolio Executive for Walt Disney World Imagineering.
Thursday morning, Imagineer Zach Riddley shared the news that some of the new décor had been installed.
Last year Cinderella’s Castle received a beautiful new look featuring bold, shimmering and regal enhancements. Officials said as part of the 50th celebration the castle will receive even more additions.
“With this package through the decoration that we’re adding all this beautiful swags and the buntings and even the jewels, it’s just going to dress it in a way that’s just, it’s just fantastic and just beautiful when you first see it,” Beatty described.
Last month, Walt Disney World shared details about the 50th anniversary celebration which begins on Oct. 1.
Officials said Cinderella Castle will shimmer with pearls, jewels and royal blue ribbons. Imagineers said above the castle’s entrance gates will be a 50th anniversary crest.
