Disney Imagineer Zack Riddley has shared on Instagram a look at the first of the embellishments to be added to Cinderella Castle as part of the 50th anniversary celebrations.

The first piece is located on the western side facing Liberty Square, and features a royal blue jewel with gold detailing and shimmering draping.

The new-look Cinderella Castle will be completed in time for the 18 month "World's Most Magical Celebration' that begins October 1 2021.

After dark, the castle will become a Beacon of Magic with nighttime illumination.

I really want Disney to host a live broadcast event, or air it on GMA about what’s to come in October. Clearly they have things to announce from Decorations to whatever will happen with HEA. Also Harmonious.

Though, to be honest, most of their pictures are quite poor. Which I'm surprised since they're most likely using a modern phone with a good camera. Even forcing the site to load the images at full quality they still are somewhat bad. I'm glad here and BlogMickey know how to work a camera.

I agree on Shanghai’s show. And their theme song for the show, in particular the English version after the show is ridiculously catchy. No doubt not everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s a fun song!

That was a good show! I do not know if many here follow the overseas parks but the other day I was watching videos of the show in Shanghai Disneyland and my mouth dropped! I would literally cry if Magic Kingdom received a copy or similar of this show. The Tron coaster is coming to Magic Kingdom so why not their firework show? hahaha.

Clicks = revenue for them. So folks can call them what they want, they're still contributing to the coffers.

Exactly. It’s nothing personal. He just has a lot of Death Eaters on the ground.

Doubt they would go the extra mile as Paris did where almost every Disney Characters besides Mickey & Friends were given anniversary attire. But a man can dream though.

I mean Tokyo had colored lighting on their trees during Celebrate Tokyo Disneyland. So it’s possible HEA could get that add on. You can see the tree lights here from Tokyo:
