Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom Park will add to its royal makeover from last year and will will feature golden bunting and a 50th anniversary crest as part of its festive new look.

At night, the castle will be joined by park icons at each of the other three theme parks as they transform into Beacons of Magic. There will be pixie dust on Cinderella Castle, magical

fireflies inhabiting the Tree of Life at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, and special new touches coming to life on the Hollywood Tower Hotel at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

At EPCOT, new lights will shine across the reflective panels of Spaceship Earth to resemble stars in a nighttime sky. Good news is that this permanent new lighting will continue beyond “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” as a defining feature of the park.

The park icons aren't the only ones getting dressed up! Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse will have sparkling new looks for the occasion in custom-made fashions of EARidescent fabric with gold highlights.
