A mural on Cinderella Castle?! It’s true! Now is your chance to be part of it!
Is there anything more iconic than Cinderella Castle? It is easily one of the most recognizable castles in the world! For over 50 years, Guests have enjoyed eating, sleeping, and admiring the castle. It is the backdrop for fireworks, stage shows, and parades.
For the 50th anniversary, Disney pulled out all the stops to give the castle a royal makeover. Imagineers took it from gray and pale blue to shimmery rose gold and deep royal blues. They even added ribbons and a beautiful 50 centerpiece in the middle.
Just when you thought Cinderella Castle was done with its makeover, Disney gives us another opportunity! You can purchase a spot to put a photo on a virtual mural.
Featuring your PhotoPass photos, you can pay $9.99 to have this photo on the mural for the next 3+ years! You’ll be able to admire it each and every time you visit the Magic Kingdom.
Not only that, but you will receive a download of that photo for free (normally $16.95). From Disney Parks Blog:
In honor of the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary celebration, today Disney PhotoPass Service is introducing “Cinderella Castle Mural of Memories,” which lets you virtually transform Cinderella Castle with your photos. While at Magic Kingdom Park, you can use the My Disney Experience app to add select Disney PhotoPass photos to Cinderella Castle using some really cool augmented reality technology, brought to life through our collaboration with Snap.
Once you get started, the experience will prompt you to select a portrait-oriented Disney PhotoPass photo from your photo gallery within the My Disney Experience app. If you prefer not to use one of these photos, you can also choose from a collection of images featuring Disney icons and favorite characters.
This experience, available for $9.99, includes:
- A spot of your choosing on available sections on Cinderella Castle to digitally pin your photo, which will be waiting for you and other guests to view again and again during visits to Magic Kingdom Park throughout the celebration and beyond (for at least three years).
- A special video of your photo flying from the castle that can be downloaded and shared.
- The ability to download a high-resolution version of your pinned photo from your Disney PhotoPass gallery without watermarks (a $16.95 value), both in its original form and an additional version with a special border applied that includes your first name. If you’re a Disney cast member, Annual Passholder, Disney Vacation Club Member, or Club 33 Member, you’ll even receive a personalized border reflecting your affiliation.
