Disney World is giving Cinderella Castle a 'royal makeover'

Just like Cinderella herself, Cinderella Castle at Disney World has been deemed just drab enough for a complete makeover.

Announced on Monday via the Disney Parks blog, news of the transformation comes 70 years to the week that the iconic animated film was released.

Work is slated to begin in “the coming weeks,” according to the Disney Parks blog, and is expected to wrap up by the end of summer 2020.
