    Question Cindy's Castle Christmas Decorations?

    I got this off of Mouse Extra:

    Will Cinderella’s Castle get a holiday makeover?

    July 12, 2007 at 10:33 pm

    We’re beginning to hear rumors from many different sources regarding a possible holiday decoration coming to the Magic Kingdom. From what we are hearing, and others have been reporting this as well, Cinderella’s Castle may be adorned with hundreds of Christmas lights for the holiday season.

    Some are speculating this may be used only during the popular Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, but I have heard the general Magic Kingdom guest can expect to see this, at least during Christmas Week. It’s not clear whether only having it on during the holiday week is really the case or just some deductive reasoning on that can accompany a rumor, but I tend to agree with it. The first party is November 12, and I just can’t see such a huge Christmas decoration being used outside the party until after Thanksgiving at the earliest.

    I wonder how the purists will react to this news. After the debacle that was the “birthday cake”, just one of the ugliest things I’ve ever seen, I can understand why people would be a bit wary. But this sounds interesting to me and potentially really beautiful. Disney has often used lighting effects on the castle with wonderful results, and lighting it up has the potential of being a really impressive “wow” moment for the holiday guests.

    I’m looking forward to seeing it. What I am not looking forward to is the inevitable return of Cinderella’s Magical Crane that will no doubt be back in all its glory while I’m there in October…

    I also heard about this rumor & i'm happy about it because Cinderella's Castle has been doing a great job as of lately. I loved what they did for the 50th celebration & the new color for the Year of a Million Dreams so having christmas lights up should be beautiful. And I know they'll do a wonderful job of putting them around the castle so i'll just have to wait & see.

    The new color scheme is a light flashing blue on the roof tops & some pink somewhere along the walls.

    Personally I hope they decorate the castle for Christmas and they keep it up for all to see. I know DL decorates the castle, but it is a much smaller castle.
