SoCal sun will fade that quickly .I'm really torn on the blue. Part of me really likes the color but there is another part of me that feels like the roofs shouldn't be so vivid. Time will tell though.
Does anybody know if the leftover 50th decorations are being removed? And are there any 60th decorations left or were those completely removed?
I thought it looked pretty good last week when I saw it in person. Also, on a side note, seeing the workmen up on the scaffolding really helps me appreciate how well the forced perspective works.
is it just me or does the castle look really tiny until you see people on it? then you realize just how big it isI thought it looked pretty good last week when I saw it in person.

The blue is definitely closer to the proper paint job, vs the teal that was there before. Here's the best photo of the castle in the early days I've been able to find, taken on Kodachrome so the colors are accurate:

And since the Asian parks are often a better representation of what Disneyland is supposed to be than the actual Disneyland, here's a photo of Hong Kong's old castle, the blue looks pretty close to what's being put on Anaheim's castle:

Of course, it's worth noting that whenever Kim Irvine gets her hands on something iconic inside Disneyland, it usually comes out worse than it was before- so while I'm optimistic about this project, gonna wait till the scrims and scaffolding come down before I praise it.
