    Question 50th railing on castle

    That railing they put on the castle looked absolutely redonkulous when they put it up, and now that the 50th long over, are they going to take this thing down already? It throws the scale of the castle completely off, and just looks incredibly tacky.

    Don't know what "redonkulous" means. Looked it up in Dictionary.Com but couldn't find it.

    Translation please.

    The railing doesn't bother me. I didn't notice when they put it up and if it's still there I wouldn't know.

    Re: 50th railing on castle

    I like some of the gold trim on the castle, that was left after the 50th.
    It does make the castle look a little more classy.

    A curious thing, though. The 50th Big Figure Castle didn't have that
    gold rail. However the new big fig that was just recently released
    does have the gold rail.

    There have been a couple threads here which some have indicated that
    the rails up there do have a purpose ~ safety reasons for the few times
    that people are up there, such as New Year's Eve.

    These and the drainpipe squirrels, or whatever they are.
    I like those details though.

    There also pyro guys that have to load some pyro on the castle. It probably is used by them as well for safety purposes.

    That railing does actually bother me... and I wish they would take it down.

    The railing is for safety for pyro setup. If you don't like it, take it up with the state? I dunno, Disney's hands are likely tied.

    i don't like the railing either, it makes the castle look like it belongs to barbie.

    It just clearly doesn't belong there... what castle have you seen that has a railing going over the tops of the arrow loops? It simply makes no sense whatsoever.

    It might partly have to do with the state. The other entity you might want to take it up with is Disney's worker's comp insurance company.

    I'd rather have the dudes who set up the fireworks show every night not fall off the castle rather than have it look absolutely perfect. Besides, I notice it but don't think it looks bad.

    Re: 50th railing on castle

    Does anyone know if the railing is practical, or purely decorative? If people are trotting across that spot on a regular basis and are prone to falling? One would have to be going a bit out of his or her way to get near that edge if the pictures are correct. There's quite a bit of room between the window wall and the arrow loops.

    There's a lot of assumptions being made (myself included).
