Beginning next month, the Castle walk-through into Fantasyland will be closed for 3 months.

The stunning golden castle enhancements will begin in early March 2020 and continue for about 3 months into early summer.

It’s being repainted the same light pink shade used last year at Sleeping Beauty Castle, with royal blue turrets and lots of gold trim.

The castle’s makeover should start around March 1st.

The $300,000 refurbishment of Sleeping Beauty Castle is complete and the Castle’s walk-through has re-opened for guests.

Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty Castle now features vibrant new colors, a new roof, and other pixie dust enhancements.

“What’s interesting is that we used an ages-old painting technique called ‘atmospheric perspective’ to visually heighten the castle,” said Kim Irvine, art director at Walt Disney Imagineering. “We warmed the pink hues on the lower towers and gradually added blue to lighten the colors toward the top.”

The same technique was used for the new roof, now in gorgeous cobalt blue hues. Each of the 18 original turrets was digitally scanned to create the same roofline and sparkly pixie dust was sprinkled on the center roof.

“We focused the golden accents and pixie dust around the entrance to the castle, as though it has been magically enchanted,” said Irvine.

Colorful banners, pennants and landscaping were also included in the refurbishment and the Sleeping Beauty Castle walk-through received new paint and interior lighting.
