    Smile Why Can't they leave it gold?

    Leave some places gold as sort of a homage to their 50 years of being. Like the castle. Leave it gold to show that it has passed 50 years and has something to show for it. Face it, the castle is beautiful as is. So does the Mark Twain which should also stay gold to mark its 50 years. Opinions?

    Bad idea. The gold looks cheap to me. If they got Krylon to be a sponsor, maybe.

    I agree with C.O. I don't like the gold either. It looks cheesey and cheap.

    I think the lamp posts should stay gold. The rest should go back to its original state though. At first, I was disoppointed when the Castle was Gold after the 3rd time I saw it. I want it back to blue.

    Re: Why Can't they leave it gold?

    I would have liked at least the gold lampposts to stay,
    as a tribute to DL's 50th. The color looked great and
    blended in fine, even for the fall and Christmas decorations!

    And some of the gold highlights on the Castle should
    stay, too. Seems that Walt's 1st park should have
    that something special for the 50th live on with the park.

    Re: Why Can't they leave it gold?

    Honestly, I didn't even remember the lamp posts being a different color before hand. I became a pass holder just before the 50th, so I remember it as that.

    That being said, I never liked the way the castle looked. But I never minded the other 50th decorations. I think they should leave SOMETHING.

    The castle was very light/faded pink, not blue.

    I think its a bad idea unless maintenance would be guaranteed. Gold paint is hard to maintain in the long term, unless gold leaf is used. Small accents might be nice, but that's it.

    Re: Why Can't they leave it gold?

    The gold touches are nice and pretty, but aren't necessary.

    I'm just happy I was around to experience the 50th (particularly May 5th, and July 17th and many days in between). It'll be something I'll never forget.

    But I am definately ready for the park to just be normal for a while.

    Unfortunately, as we're finally losing the last of the gold, we're being invaded by Year of a Million Dreams "graffiti" and clouds.

    So wait, you remember the color from infancy?

    On second thought, don't answer that.
