For real. I’ll applaud Zach if he ever posts evidence of a currently employed Imagineer touching a piece of real paper!

They sent a man to the moon with those computers, how far we've fallen...

This is like Pixar bragging that they animate with computers.

That explains why they have not been able to adorn the castle with anything until now. They didn’t have the technology to do so until now.

Said castle was originally built without the aid of computers. 😮

You don’t want to applaud The Zach and his team for using something fancy called a “computer” to ensure that the new decorations actually fit the castle?

Well, you knew he was going to post something insipid. ;) (Zach, not @DCBaker.)

Wow, the castle looks amazing in those photos posted in the article on here a couple days ago. Honestly, it makes the grey and blue version before the pink reimagining look bland and boring. I can't wait to see it in person!

Guess we will see but I hope they add the decorations and ribbons to the turrets in front of the castle. That wouldn’t require the crane though so maybe that will come at a later time?

Not since MSEP left in 2016 I believe,. There's no reason it can't cyle now and up to 10 or 5 minutes before Fireworks when those return!

The castle lighting hasn’t just cycled for many years

I like it. It's almost gaudy (but, IMO, it's not). I weigh that out with: "Yeah, it's supposed to be over the top as it's the 50th!". If they left this stuff up and it was the 55th I'd be more in the camp of, "This really needs to go away, now." The "rose gold" (kinda pink) doesn't bother me. One thing, and I bet I'm in the minority here, I'd like to see is for them to go back to the original colors and, instead of having the LED floodlights set to "cycle" (which always bothered me - it makes no sense. It's not telling a story), just have them set to white as the original castle lit up at night (in white) was really majestic to me. Different LED colors for different events like Halloween, Independence Day, or Christmas? No problems. Having them just cycle? (Maybe they no longer do that - I haven't been in ≈5 years) it makes no sense and is distracting.
