Cinderella Castle stage refurbishment - March 8 2021
Posted: Tuesday March 9, 2021 9:04am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Cinderella Castle is once again the center of activity at the Magic Kingdom as work continues on the castle stage and work is about to begin on the 50th anniversary enhancements.


The moat is currently blocked off on both sides of the castle to allow access for workers and machinery.

Six high reach boom lifts are in position at the base of the castle, similar to what we saw during the recent repainting work.

None of the castle enhancements have yet been installed, but with the equipment in position it shouldn't be long before we see some progress.

On the castle forecourt stage, the rebuild is underway after the stage was cleared down to the supports.

The World’s Most Magical Celebration begins October 1 2021, and continues for 18 months. Cinderella Castle will get a new overlay for the celebration, building further on the new look that debuted last year.

They need stairs. It adds to the dramatic effect when singing a Disney song when they go up and down the steps LOL.

Hate the stage pieces. Keep the original look.

I hope the arches don't return. I vividly remember when they were added for the Cinderellabration back in 2006 (which was imported from Tokyo Disneyland). But Disney decided to keep them as long as possible (especially for Dream Along With Mickey) .

The platforms are fine, it’s the pointless arches that are the problem.

I sort of want them to not bring those back… I know they are great for the shows and adding levels, but I love that clean shot of the castle!

Or when rehearsals start. If you meant that, sorry!

Yep looks that way. Or maybe they will leave it until the imminent return of a show.

So the Arches or something else could be put on the stage any day now?

Looks like the original platforms (and with them, likely the arches) are coming back, based on the markers on the stage.

It's weird at first I hated the new colors for the castle. Now I'm thinking man it's going to look boring when they go back to the originals.
