    Special NBA Finals Easter Egg

    Tonight, during the NBA Finals, Sleeping Beauty Castle will periodically glow purple and gold in support of the Lakers.

    It's a very low key lighting change that will happen a few times an hour after the sun goes down until park closing tonight, and throughout the finals.

    The park presidents even pledged to turn the lights of their respective castles to their team colors in celebration of the historic pairing.
    They sent out a press release about it.

    Nope. It's posted in the Twilight Bark section of the D23 website.

    That would be pretty neat to see - but there's no way I'm gonna be at the parks during a finals game. It would be neat if it carried over to other times than just when the games are happening.

    Don't like the sound of that. Disneyland is not Basketball they don't need to do that. I think it will make the castle look bad. And no it's not because I'm not a basketball fan I just don't think it's right.

    Oh come on! It's purple and gold...not that different from the usual colors. Most will only notice it if they're looking at it when it changes or if they know about it. It's not that big of a deal.

    I think this is a fun idea. Someone better post pictures of the purple and gold castle.

    But the Lakers superstar player frequents DLR as much as some of us. He even mentioned Grumpy in his post game interview.

    Re: Special NBA Finals Easter Egg

    Well I don't care for the Lakers or any thing of Basketball. I don't like that sport. I wouldn't even like it if it was the Dodgers in the World Series and if Disneyland did the castle in blue and white. I just don't think it works to well. Now if they want to do a parade for them then that's different. I know they have the castle light up in different colors for the fireworks but that is only for fireworks. I wouldn't like to see the castle all night in the purple and yellow colors.
