    Castle Lighting

    Has anyone noticed the new lighting on the castle? I was in the park a few nights ago, and I think that it looks great! All of the different levels of the castle now seem to have lighting hidden behind them. It sort of reminds me of the photo of the castle with Tinkerbelle at the beginning of the old Wonderful World of Color show.

    Yeah actually, finally saw it myself the other night, it really is fantastic. Also makes the castle look like it's inhabitated for once too, since the inner lights show out through the holes.

    you're right -- there is a new lighting system that was installed after the last rehab. It features some pretty cool LED technologies that give the entertainment dept. much more discrete control over the color of the castle.

    Last weekend, I saw a green blinking light one of the highest roofs of the castle, and wasn't sure what it was. I only saw it going off for about 5 minutes, then it was gone.

    The Wonderful World of Disney.
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.

    No, it was later than that. I think it was either after, or during the time the Christmas decorations were up.

    We went on Nov 17th (just after the last refurb was completed and just before the Christmas decorations went up) and I took a pic of the castle (see below) and it was fully lighted. And when we went yesterday I took another pic of it since there was talk about the new lighting.

    I like the way it was better, it showed off the castle much more. See below:

    Yeah, I like the old version better, too. The stonework bastions are just too dark in the new style.
