Chapek also revealed the new concept artwork and some of the more intricate details the re-imagined castle.
The Castle of Magical Dreams is the first castle in a Disney resort to undergo such a huge transformation.
The castle’s new themed spires and towers are all dedicated to a well-known Disney story. The towers, turrets and spires are currently being fit into place at the site.
The design of the transformed attraction is centred on Disney’s iconic princesses. Through a playful and creative use of colours, patterns, icons and cultural features, the castle will play homage to many of Disney’s much-loved heroines.
The reinvented castle is designed to stand for courage and hope and to inspire visitors to “think big.” The attraction will be home to both nighttime and daytime shows.
The Castle of Magical Dreams is due to open in 2020.
