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.

They were unhappier with the cost of repainting.

Really? This is so disappointing. I remember hearing a while back that TDO were unhappy with the way the pink turned out, had my fingers crossed the color would be painted over at some point after the 50th decorations had been taken down.

Considering that last time they let the blue roofs fade to virtually grey, I wouldn't put it past them.

The proper term for me is "mess" but to each their own. Like I said before, it looks to me like they just threw a bunch of multicolored stuff on it, which they actually did.

Not until the 100th.

I think the roof change helped a bit... It is still Golden Girls Mauve which is wrong for the whole character and idea of the castle....If this were being done for Disneyland's 50th, making all the castles worldwide look like Sleeping Beauty's Castle, it might make sense, but when it is the 50th Celebration for WDW's original castle and park it seems like it was just a bad idea. Maybe for Disneyland's 70th they will paint Sleeping Beauty Castle gray ...to look more like the WDW Castle. With Advanced imaging and computers, they could have had a better idea of what it would look like before it was done... Get rid of the peeling rocks in Tomorrowland and bring back the Gull-wing waterfalls from 1971... Give Tomorrowland it's WOW entrance.

I don't think it's a mess. The proper term is it look busy. Maybe taking down the buntings will solve it. The gems and the gold wraparounds are lovely.

Didn't an insider here say that the paint job didn't come out as they expected and they weren't all that happy about it? I think it was alluded that it might get changed.

God willing. But in a world where Disney allows the rocks at the Tomorrowland hub entrance to continue flaking...

I do love that clock. But a 50 has to go somewhere and it’s the least worst choice.
