Cinderella Castle stage refurbishment - February 23 2021
Posted: Tuesday February 23, 2021 2:!3pm ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Work is moving quickly on the Cinderella Castle stage refurbishment at the Magic Kingdom.

Since the work began last week, the raised platforms and arches have been totally removed. This has been done before during refurbishments, and they have been returned.

Much of the surface has been remove down to the wooden support beams.

It remains unclear to what extent this is a refurbishment vs a removal. Recent concept art for the 50th anniversary celebrations shows a very minimal stage with no arches.

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.
