Do You Remember-Cinderella Castle, Happiest Celebration on Earth?

Barbie and I took our first trip to Walt Disney World in September of 2006, at the tail end of the "Happiest Celebration on Earth", which celebrated Disneyland's 50th Anniversary.
To commemorate, the exterior of Cinderella Castle was adorned with gold trim, banners, and swags.
Various Disney characters were also added to several locations around the castle.
We missed seeing most of that, but we did get to see the "Magic Mirror" above the front archway.

Every 40 seconds the mirror changed, revealing a different Disney Castle and the date it's park opened:
Disneyland - 1955, Magic Kingdom - 1971, Tokyo Disneyland - 1983, Disneyland Resort Paris - 1992, and Hong Kong Disneyland - 2005.

Did you get to see the Castle during this time?


  1. Yes! We were there that July at WDW and, of course, at DL. It was so much fun!

  2. Yes! We were there to see it too- though I recall ( and I can see in apicure on my desk here) that the blue castle spires were covered in a gold cross-cross design as well (unlike in this picture

  3. I think I did see this . . . I will have to check my photos when I get home!

  4. I was there on my honeymoon late Sept 2006..I wonder if I am totally forgetting this! i will have to ask my SuperMouseJunkie husband :)
