Cinderella Castle stands majestically at the end of Main Street U.S.A. and now after the Magic Kingdom’s “hub” redevelopment it will command an even larger presence with its all-new castle spires. Earlier this week, the first two of the grand new castle spires were largely unveiled from behind their construction walls and scrim giving us yet another incredible preview of just how everything will look once the construction is completed. It is a major change to the Magic Kingdom’s most photographed icon but out of all the changes to the “hub” it is the one that comes with the least amount of compromises and certainly adds to the beauty and pristine wonder of Cinderella Castle.
The spires also serve an important purpose doubling as housing for speakers behind the veil of a draped tapestry with the lion from Disney’s coat of arms. The next piece to this extended Cinderella Castle spire puzzle should be revealed soon and bring with it small castle walls. For now though enjoy this early reveal and don’t worry if you just stare with awe, we did too.
