First ribbon installed on the spire of Cinderella Castle - April 7 2021
Posted: Wednesday April 7, 2021 2:28pm ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Overnight the Cinderella Castle transformation team installed the first of the ribbons that will cover each of the spires on the Magic Kingdom icon.

The first of the ribbons to be placed is located on one of the lower spires, on the western side nearest to Liberty Square.

Unlike the lower decorations that were added with a high reach boom lift, the ribbons are requiring the use of a full scale crane which is parked behind the castle and hidden during the daytime.


When complete there will be 113 pieces of new decor installed, and it all officially gets unveiled on October 1 2021.

I think the size of the garland is designed to look in proportion with the forced perspective. If you look closely the upper garland is slightly smaller than the lower garland.

Paint it to some off white color, and it would be literally perfect.

They photographed it at the optimal time of day for that paint...lol I don't hate the decor... The Garland things are a little too small and fussy looking compared to the other decor elements... Overall aside from the pink castle, I like it... Just not pink.

I don't looooooove these new garland additions. @MisterPenguin is right, they really look like Christmas decorations that have been spray painted. Hopefully the rest of the additions will feel more exciting and less recycled.

That pitch of that turret roof is far too steep for Sleeping Beauty Castle.
