I am sure ready for the pale gray and white again...I think they are going to leave this though...It was always my fear that they would... You would think the painting would be done with the decor removal.... though I am sure everyone is tired of seeing construction equipment at the Disney World Parks...

Until the pink is gone, the castle will never be free of 50th decor.

There is definitely some fading of the areas not covered by the cage. It is going to need some attention. Some are worse than others.

Maybe it’s just me but I think as long as the caste stays that color it will be a reminder of the 50th and covid, and I say covid since thats the timeframe it became that color.

The final ribbon has been removed and the castle is now 50th decor-free.

Interesting that they kept the ribbons on the front/center two towers given that they're now gone

Some new modified (never before seen) projections debuted for HEA. This version removes the jabot and swag decorations from the projections, but keeps the ribbons on the spires. No clue why they even did this as the ribbons are currently in the process of going away, but it's better than nothing I guess. Plus the projections look much cleaner on the castle stone walls now (especially the stained glass scene with all the characters). Left (last week) / Right (tonight) And just to keep track, here are all the different HEA castle projection versions: Regular/original (2017) Ribbons + jabot & swag decorations (early July 2021) Ribbons + jabot & swag + 50th medallion (late July 2021) Ribbons only (May 2023)

Easily the best book of WDW ever produced.

That looks very nice too, but in the one I was referencing, the castle had no pink.

I think they should make it look like this (DarKoaster at Busch Gardens)

That couldn't have been my Photoshop, right? Desperately hoping they get some sense into them and reevaluate the Coppertone color scheme. Ideally sooner rather than later, but I'd be willing to be a *little* patient if it meant they got it right this time.
