Actually the WDW Overlay for Disneyland's 50th was very nice...maybe the purple-blue roofs will look better with a gilded cage over top of them...Technically playing the color wheel game they should pop... But why they painted the WDW castle to match Disneyland's castle for WDW's 50th Anniversary is baffling...Shouldn't they instead be painting Disneyland's castle in shades of gray with french blue roof tiles? lolI have a feeling it’s going to be very similar if not identical to Disneyland’s 50th overlay they did to Cinderella castle. Hopefully minus the mirror.
I don’t know anything about additional accents for the castle, but I find it funny how this is the way we respond to whatever strange thing Disney does these days:I know that the recent paint job on Cinderella Castle has gotten a lot of hate, but I will vouch that it looks quite beautiful in person when you enter Magic Kingdom.
That said, the shade of adobe pink that’s used on the spires doesn’t look good while riding the Monorail (when you can’t see the lower half of the castle) and it doesn’t seem to photograph as well. I’m thinking that the castle is going to get additional accents for the 50th that may make more sense with the color scheme?

“Maybe they’re not finished with the work yet?”
”Maybe the color will fade and will look right?”
“Maybe they’ll plant some trees to hide it?”
“Maybe they’re going to add some decoration to the giant, plain box?”
“Maybe they’ll add the droids and aliens later?”
”Maybe they‘re still going to replace the temporary tents with something more permanent?”
Yet most of our maybes are just wishful thinking.
well lots of things can look better to the naked eye than in a photo, particularly things at night.If it only looks good from certain angles, with certain lighting, at a certain time of day, or better with enhancements that have not arrived yet, I would say it is pretty much a failure of design. In it's original colors it ALWAYS looked good...
If this is a permanent change, I would say someone strayed a little too far from the mark.
The thing is, its not an attraction now. So its replacing empty space with a fun store. I am all for a new ride, but dont see that in the cards for the 50th. So then I’d rather have something like this than nothing at all.Let's not replace an attraction with a store, please.
Problem is, once they put that store in, it will never return to attraction space... But in the meantime, Overhaul Star Traders with that concept...Yes Please... But don't replace an attraction with a store...ever.The thing is, its not an attraction now. So its replacing empty space with a fun store.

Totally agree with what you say though.
