Disney Imagineer Zach Riddley shared some new Mary Blair-inspired concept art of Cinderella Castle all decked out for the 50th anniversary celebration.
Riddley shared on Instagram today that the Imagineering team drew inspiration from Disney Legend Mary Blair for the 50th anniversary celebration transformation of Cinderella Castle. The Walt Disney World 50th anniversary celebration begins October 1, 2021, and you can already see decor being added to the castle!
Riddley shared more about the inspiration behind the 50th anniversary decorations saying, “We wanted to go back to the original story of this beautiful structure to create something entirely original for this grand celebration. Fanciful ribbons wrap in air around the castle turrets – inspired by the scene in the film where Cinderella is transformed in her stunning gown. And 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.”
We can’t wait to see Cinderella Castle in all her 50th anniversary glory! Will you be there during the celebration?
