    I was going to say that too!!! The trees in the hub are sorely missed. It looks so bare and flat now.

    A friend of mine that went to Disney World this past summer didn't even bother going to the Magic Kingdom because she had heard it was so inferior to Disneyland. It's reputation is damaged.

    It completely throws off the scale of the roofs and turrets
    It does?

    Well the zig-zag lines are so big, it distracts my eye too much and makes it all look off scale...at least to me. I just don't like it because they are too big, too bright a blue, and too cheaply painted on there.

    Too bad. Because I still feel the MK is worth visiting... at least so others can see for themselves how inferior it is to it's 4 sister DL parks!!! HAHA!!

    and too cheaply painted on there.
    If they did things with a bigger budget at the MK, we too would have cobblestones on Main Street sidewalks, golden accent features on the castle, and a killer state of the art LED electrical parade... So what else is new?

    They need to make the bottom half more pink.

    The criss cross has been there since YoaMD started, but the zigzags didn't go up until the Christmas lights went up.

    I think Tokyo Disneyland's paint job looks much prettier than the Magic Kingdom's. Of course, I still prefer the pinks of the Sleeping Beauty Castles (especially Disneyland Paris').

    Now I am really confused are you saying that the new Christmas lights are already up in that picture. I understand what you mean that the criss crosses (above the clock) were done when the castle got repainted toward the end 2006. But the new zig zags on the upper portion are fairly new, but when did they begin hanging the new lights?

    A search on a-magical-wdw-website shows that the crane went up in late September (which I believe did both the new zig-zag and the lights).

    Mikey, I have seen the Xmas lights on the Castle already, and they are not present on that picture. Remember... I go to the MK several times monthly, unlike you.

    Re: What did they do to Cinderella Castle???

    Of course, it is possible that they added the zig-zag pattern just before the lights went up, using the same crane.. But then again, since the TDL castle look is nicer, I never cared to look up at the castle here, until the other day when they lights caught my attention.
