walt disney world 25th anniversary

This Day in Disney History

January 31, 1998:  Cinderella’s Castle, which had been decorated like a cake for Disney World’s 25th Anniversary Celebration, is returned to it’s former glory.

One of the least enjoyed aesthetic changes to the Magic Kingdom, the pink castle was easily one of the most ridiculous looking ideas out of Disney to date. With bright pink paint and inflatable candies, it was practically an eyesore while it lasted.  I was just a kid when it was there and barely remember it, but even as a 10-year-old girl, I knew tacky when I saw it!

Luckily, the castle was restored on this day, and other than Stitch’s toilet paper takeover and the holiday lights (which are absolutely beautiful), it should look normal and regal standing at the end of Main Street USA.
