Cinderella’s Castle

I was cleaning out the photos on my iPhone when I came across a couple of them that I took, but never posted. One of them was way back in December when Chris and I went to the Magic Kingdom in Orlando. For Christmas, Disney puts lights on Cinderella’s castle, but it doesn’t light up until after 6. There’s a whole skit involving Mickey and Minnie, the fairy godmother, Cinderella and the mute Prince Charming. His only role was to escort Cinderella. Poor guy didn’t even have any lines, not that being mute mattered since they were all just moving their lips to the script anyway.

The lights on the castle are painted the exact same shade as the colors of the castle. This is so that you couldn’t see it during the day. From far away, you couldn’t see that there was a huge net covering the castle.

At night, when the lights are turned on, the castle looks quite spectacular.

The script is hokey, but I thought it was cute. You don’t really need to be really close unless you want to see the characters. You can hear them just fine, and they really don’t do much except nod their heads. So anywhere you have a clear view of the castle will be good. If you’re there, you might as well watch the lights. But it’s not something worth paying $65 to actually see.
