Posted: Sunday September 26, 2021 9:16am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The Cinderella Castle stage will have a new look for the World's Most Magical Celebration 50th anniversary.

Crews are busy this morning installing the new vinyl flooring to cover the entire surface of the stage.

The new design uses the now familiar deep blue with golden accents, and includes "The World's Most Magical Celebration" tagline along with Cinderella Castle in the center.

October 1 will see the return of the Magic Kingdom welcome show - "Let the Magic Begin," but beyond that there are no announced plans for the stage.

I'm in the minority, but I actually liked them. I thought they added some pizzaz to an otherwise bland looking stage. Now, if there were no stage, I'd obviously be fine without the arches. Also, I'd take those arches any day over the Mickey one seen here during and around the 25th anniversary.

The arches will not at all be missed. They were so incredibly tacky.

How fitting that the arches installed for one 50th birthday celebration get removed for another 50th birthday celebration.

Thank goodness 🙏🙏🙏

I think we can finally stick a fork in those arches, railings installed on both staircases.

Might Today's news about a Show for Merriest AH be connected?

There’s something happening after Halloween…

They must have a new/returning show coming back soon? Wonder why they haven't announced it

Right, that’s what I thought I remembered. So I imagine that they won’t clutter the right side with 5 arches even if they do come back.

Yep. Asymmetrical before whereas it is now symmetrical. Previous version for reference from just before the Covid closure (boo to the arches, but goodness do I miss the non-pink castle scheme):

James AlucobondOct 05, 2021

It looks like they've changed the layout. Wasn't it asymmetrical before with a taller stage, longer staircase, and more arches on the right? For that reason, even if the arches return, I imagine they won't be as visually distracting due to the lower profile design.
