the Walt-Era Castle in it’s shades of blue
Until the 1983 refurbishment of Fantasyland, Sleeping Beauty Castle was painted a different color scheme: white with blue spires. Walt Disney World’s castle, built in 1971, went for a different look by opting for gray and blue, a color scheme that continues to this day. After 1983, though, Sleeping Beauty Castle switched to the now-familiar pink and blue, generating an arguably warmer and more comfortable atmosphere. Le Chateau de la Belle au Bois Dormant at Disneyland Paris, built in 1989, mimicked the new look of Sleeping Beauty Castle and its pink and blue color scheme.

57 Years ago Disneyland opened its gates. Since it’s opening over 600 Million guests have entered this happy place. A place where wishes and dreams come true. Where the young and young at heart can laugh, learn and play together.
As Walt Disney said on opening day:
“To all who come to this happy place: Welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past…and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams, and the hard facts that have created America…with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world.”
