    Although I thought the pink cake was cool (they could have used a different color), I thought the gold spirals, bunting, and characters was the worst looking. It was so cluttered and over-done. Plus the color cordination was WAY off. The gold decor and faded blue and grey exterior did not blend well at all. The mirror was way too large as well.

    But nevertheless, I like how they painted it after the junk came off. The subtle tope and beige tones with the shiny blue roofs were very nicely done. I think if they went all out and duplicated the look of Cinderella Castle in Tokyo, it would have added a new and genuine flare to the Magic Kingdom's icon. I also like how they added those light blue accents to the roof above the clock, but they should have added actual roof tiles that made out the pattern (like Anaheim) instead of just painting lines.

    The castle looks best with nothing on it.

    This photo was taken just recently by my friend Jennifer. She had an early breakfast at Crystal Palace. This is one of the only times that you can get a picture of the castle, where there won't be any people in front of it.

    They seriously need to paint the buildings on Main Street with brighter color paints. Everything looks so dull. The Castle looks cooling, but it's a shame that all the detail goes unnoticed because it's all painted the same color.

    Much better:


    This could be considered the many faces of Cinderella Castle I suppose.

    Re: The Castles Many Looks....

    Well, I don't have pics of them, but I can name some (or most) of them (hopefully there will eventually be pics of all in this thread)......
    • Original color scheme (I believe mostly greys)
    • Pre-Cake color change (color scheme until last year)
    • Castle Cake (can you really forget this one?)
    • Stitch Castle (Toilet Papered/Fake graffiti)
    • HCoE Castle (Gold trim, mirror, characters)
    • YoaMD Castle (new color scheme including marble/tan/pinkish coloring and a new pattern on the clock turret
    • Christmas Castle (New this year including icicle lights)
    • Old nighttime lighting (I believe white flood-lights)
    • Newer nighttime lighting (different colors)
    • Constructed Castle (back before the park opened)
    Did I miss anything? Now please pardon me as I about that TDL color scheme.

    Besides the photos the original poster asked for? Maybe a love life in your teenage years. Poor thing. Too much Disney, too soon for you.

    Now please pardon me as I about that TDL color scheme.
    You are just jealous that some of us know better than you when it comes to the Universe of Disney past the only thing you know, which is WDW. Behold the false pride of the younger years in life... But Let me help you with that unsolicited a bit more...





    Or maybe you prefer the Classic look?

    I like Tokyo Disneyland's color scheme much better than the Magic Kingdom's. It's prettier, and it accents the golden touches better.
