    Cinderella's Castle goes down tomorrow!

    Tomorrow, the Castle will begin it's transformation. It will go from January 25 until April. Main Street USA sidewalks will go down sometime in March. That's all I know at the moment, but will try to bring you updates about the rehab

    Do you mean that there will be scaffolding all over the castle and what will they do to the sidewalks?

    I don't know what will happen to the castle. I would guess that scaffolding will be covering the entire castle, but I'm not sure. We'll see in a week or so.

    As for the sidewalks, I would guess they will be ripped up and repaved. Possibly some buildings on Main Street USA will be painted. That will not happen until march, though.

    Thanks for the update coasterman! I'm glad we decided not to go until after the beginning of the 50th celebration; hopefully most of the big rehabs should be done by then!

    I'm so glad I got to see it before the rehab. I've seen pictures of what they want to do it ~ it's nice, but I don't understand why they are doing it at WDW. DL is turning 50, not MK. MK is 30 something, right. Anyway, I'm glad my kids were able to see the Cindy's castle as I did when I was there ages. I think it' breathtaking just as it is.

    They are celebrating DL 50th b-day at all the parks. WDW seems to be a major hub of the celebration. WDW is getting an attraction or show from every park. Lights, Motors, Action is from Disneyland Paris, Soarin' from DL, and Cinderellabration from Disneyland Tokyo.

    I really hope everything isn't all torn up when we are there in Feb. My niece is going to be so dissappointed if she can't get her picture taken in front of the castle - this will be her first trip to WDW and we are going to MK on her birthday specifically to go to CRT for the princess breakfast. I didn't know they were doing things to the sidewalks as well! Fingers crossed that everything isn't a mess for us!

    Dont forget Expedition Everest an obvious copy of the Matterhorn, all that is different is the mountain, and theme. Everything else is just like the Matterhorn, its cool their getting it in all but it is a copy ride. Wow, Cinderella's Castle is going down earlier than I though..........are the MS pathways is bad condition?
