Cinderella’s Castle has been undergoing some painting as the work crews begin to cover the Castle with icicle lights for the upcoming winter holiday season.  I noticed that some of the spires are actually silver now.  Is Disney actually changing the color of Cinderella’s Castle Spires?

I decided to stroll around to the back of the castle to see what was going on.  The ever-popular Walt Disney World Crane is there in all his glory; back to photo-bomb your Cinderella Castle photos.  The Crane was supporting a man in a yellow basket who was actually painting one of the spires as I observed from the ground.  No answers were apparent, other than the fact that the crew is actually painting the spires with a silver-colored paint.  I decided to move on in search of answers.

I walked all the way around the castle to see the painting progress from different vantage points.  From whatever angle you are seeing Cinderella’s Castle, the silver color is very noticeable.  We are used to seeing the spires all in blue.  As you can see, blue is still the color of most of them.  Inquiring minds want to know what this is all about, which is why I began speaking with Cast Members and asking about why the spires are being painted silver.  I spoke with three Cast Members, and received three different answers.  Here is what I discovered.

  1.  The first Cast Member I saw told me that Disney is, in fact, painting all of the spires silver.
  2. The second Cast Member I spoke with informed me that the silver paint is the base coat and that the blue color will go over the silver.
  3. The third Cast Member I asked stated that the Castle spires are being painted silver for the upcoming winter holidays.

After speaking with Cast Members I was more curious than ever!  Therefore, I present the question to all of you, our Chip and Company Walt Disney World fans and followers.  Can you tell me if Disney is changing the color of Cinderella’s Castle spires?
