Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty Castle Under Refurbishment
Construction walls have recently popped up around Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty Castle for a major refurbishment. The walls went up and the makeover began, which will include a $300,00 reroof of the 70-foot tall castle that will replace the plastic on the turrets.
Beginning January 17th, the construction will force the closure of the Sleeping Beauty Castle Walkthrough attraction.
A blue fence now blocks the center and east archways at the rear of the castle. Signs in the front of the castle direct visitors to access Fantasyland via the Big Thunder trail or the parade route alongside the Matterhorn. Don’t worry, the Snow White Grotto and Wishing Well are still accessible for all your Instagram photo needs.
The castle will retain its color scheme of gray walls, pink towers, and bright blue roofs.
The walls also block the moat and drawbridge view from the guest’s sight, but if you’re a fan of boring gray walls, then you’re in for a treat! I understand that the refurbishment has to happen, but it does take away from a certain magical feeling walking into the park.
The castle is rumored to be completed in Spring 2019.
