    Re: Sleeping Beauty Castle Refurbishment

    I had heard about this. Do you know if the work (or at least the scaffolding) will be done by June?

    It seems that the work won't be finish yet... but the odds are that the scaffolding will be remove owing to the firework show ;-).
    We'll let you know ;-)

    Re: Sleeping Beauty Castle Refurbishment

    The schedule for the refurbishment of the castle is from march till september so I don't think that the work will be done in June. But i believe that they will have the summer fireworks from july till september even if the castle is covered. But think we'll have to wait and see. The first fireworks are in March with St. David's fireworks and by then the castle will be covered so lets wait and see.
    But believe its needed this refurbishment.

    That's good show DLP, really. You could at least cover the scaffolding in cloth or scrim. You don't have to put images on it, but at least cover the scaffolding. This is less Disney and more like Knotts and their "put construction behind half sized walls".

    I think there is more scaffolding coming, and they will cover it... It is on the beginning...

    yeah think the same. You just have to be patient and wait till the castle is all covered

    Of course DLP will do it! But it's still too soon! So, be patient...

    I'm just glad they are painting it. It is the most beautiful Disney castle ever but sorely neglected in upkeep. Much like the park!

    This is awesome news. Can I be selfish though and request that they are done by the last week in August? ;-)
