The walls are up, the moat has been drained, its time for the work on the Sleeping Beauty Castle to begin! Imagineer Kim Irvine is the head of the castle refresh. Kim has a long history with the resort and began her career at Walt Disney Imagineering in 1970. The castle will be getting a fresh coat of paint and an updated color scheme. But don’t worry, it will still hold true to the original pink and grey look! One noticeable update will be the brickwork colors. The updated look will have a gradient look to it, with a darker grey at the base and a lighter grey towards the top. – https://micechat.com/214089-disneyland-photo-update-mickey-is-getting-his-ears-on/
Mickey’s Mix Magic is set to debut later this week! The new nighttime spectacular is scheduled to make its first public appearance this Friday, January 18th at 9:30pm. As we have previously discussed, Mickey’s Mix Magic will primarly be a projection show and will add fireworks to the mix on select nights. The show will use state of the art projections, lighting, and lasers on Main Street, plus water screens on Rivers of America, and also the the facade of its a small world to immerse guests into the party. – https://micechat.com/214089-disneyland-photo-update-mickey-is-getting-his-ears-on/
