Disney Imagineer Zach Riddley just shared the full illustrations of the Mary Blair-inspired transformation of Cinderella Castle that is taking place in preparation for the 50th Anniversary celebration of Walt Disney World.
In his post, Zach says of the Imagineers,
We wanted to go back to the original story of this beautiful structure to create something entirely original for this grand celebration.
He says that the new additions were inspired by the scene in Disney’s Cinderella where she is transformed into her ball gown.
Mary’s designs provided us a beautiful palette of rich hues to choose from – deep blues, purples and shimmering golds mesh with a touch of EARidescence that will catch light and evolve through the day and into each evening.
Head over to our Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary page linked above to learn what we know so far about the upcoming celebration.
