    That's a bummer! Hopefully someone fills that unsightly crack soon.

    Edit: Oh my! What did I just say?

    Re: Cinderella's Cracking Up

    Which area is this on? Like the front when you walk in, or the back? or a side?

    Do buildings 36 years old usually develop cracks like this?

    It's on the Fantasyland side to the right of the archways.

    OK - so it's not at least on the front where everyone would see it, so that's good - but this is still pretty major! I'm surprised someone hasn't already looked into this - it doesn't seem very new - usually a crack that large can't appear overnight, correct?

    I took the photograph about a week ago- out of surprise that I hadn't spotted anything about it online.

    Concrete cracks. I doubt the wall does much more than hold itself up. I don't know much, but I doubt its of much consequence, structurally.

    Isn't it fibreglass?

    I agree- structurally it shouldn't be a problem.

    But visually..........

    I'm pretty sure the "stones" near the ground are concrete to give them that stone texture.

    Visually, it is a very big problem.

    That is a much larger version of the picture. Zoomed in I suppose so it isn't THAT obvious to guests. Or else, it probably would have been taken care of.

    Of course, the brick facade is... just a facade. It has no structural significance.

    Re: Cinderella's Cracking Up

    Well, it does seem to be more obvious than it appeared to be. WHat you have to remember is that the facade is 36 years old. It will crack eventually. They shall get around to it. Hopefully soon.

    You should see the things that Disney files permits for. The most rediclous stuff in my opinion, mostly backstage. I'm sure that they'll get to it once they finish tinkering with the roof of the monorail building.

    ORDDU: In the state of Florida, cracks in buildings like this usually mean a sink hole is opening up underneath the structure. Of course, in this case, the castle isn't even built on solid ground--it's built on the second level of a tunnel. Unless the tunnel, below, is in danger of a sink hole, my sisters and I aren't certain what would have caused this. Of course Cinderella's castle HAS taken a lot of abuse over the years--from all the unncessary decorations and pepto-Bismol paint jobs certain unwise Management types have subjected it to.

    ORGOCH: See what comes from buildin' yer castles too dang big? Cindersmelly should a known better! Ya don't see Snoozin' Floozie's Castle crackin' up like that, now does ya? From what I hears, the castle in Tokyo's got cracks just like that, too!
