    I've just read about the magic kingdom castle being dressed up as a cake and find it so funny. Does anyone have any photos of it like that? it sounds brilliant.

    Has the castle ever been dressed up as anything else other than a cake?

    It most definitely was NOT brilliant! It was the color of Pepto Bismol. Profound, as it was pretty disturbing to see.

    Some folks really did like it though! I (clearly) am far too much a traditionalist to have the beautiful castle turned into a miserable pink, candy laden cake.

    Don't have any photos, but hopefully someone will come up with one.

    Yep. They did it for the 25th Anniversary of WDW in 1996.

    Glad that's over!

    If you must subject yourself to it, here's the photo:

    Oh good heavens. I'd actually forgotten how terrible it truly was! MY EYES!!!!

    Thanks though, Catrancher. Good to share the misery a bit!

    I really want to say I like it just to be contrary but I can't, that was absolutely dreadful. It still makes me cringe just to see a photo of it

    I'm glad I was just an innocent little child who hadn't let learnt to bug my parents to go to WDW when THAT was around

    On one hand, the themeing is fantastic... on the other hand! My eyes!!! They burn!

    I attended a talk given by one of the senior members of Disney on one of our cruises and he openly admitted that this had been one of the worst decisions taken when it was decided to do this to the castle.

    I'll certainly second that Terry. That was HORRENDOUS.

    It was terrible but I actually am really pleased that I saw it like that and have the photos as it is so notorious now! Very glad it was my second visit though and my first ever view of the castle in real life was how it is meant to be seen!
