Posted: Monday April 12, 2021 8:35am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Work is continuing to spruce up the Magic kingdom ahead of Disney World's 50th anniversary celebration beginning in October 2021.

Following on from the work underway at Cinderella Castle, paint crews are also working on the rooftops in Fantasyland.

The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique roofline is now complete, painted in a much deeper blue than before. In this shot below, you can see that it also a much deeper blue than the Cinderella Castle spires.

Disney World's 50th anniversary  begins October 1 2021 and is planned to continue for 18 months.

Very likely the mounts on the castle are dead on, and the ones on the back of the crest itself are off.

I wouldn’t be surprised at all if the mounts are spot on and Disney screwed up the crest. Seems to be their style nowadays.

I dunno...that looks pretty dead-on to me. I really think the crest is crooked. Even the decorative molding on each side of the crest looks a little crooked.

I am hoping the person was just not directly in front of the castle and we are seeing an optical illusion. Worst case, no problem, just pull it off and replace the command strip. 😀

Take the castle crane and lift on the lower left support ever so gently........ Oh, I want video when they do it

@Splashin' Ryan hit the nail on the head. Due to the way that the mounts are installed on the castle, there’s no easy way to straighten the crest. But even if there was, they wouldn’t do it. It’s barely noticeable. No one is going to see it unless they’re standing up close (almost underneath it) while staring directly at the point. The 50 doesn’t look off at the slightest, even up close, and that’s the most important thing.

They won't be able to fix it. The piece was slid into supports that were installed months ago so the supports themselves are likely the ones causing the slight misalignment and therefore the supports would also need to be re drilled into the castle facade for a fix. https://blogmickey.com/2021/04/mounts-installed-on-cinderella-castle-for-disney-world-50th-anniversary-shield/

That picture is from the center though and there are other pictures you can tell that decor piece is tilted to the left
