  • 50th Birthday castle as promised to Aussies

    Hi all - I got a brochure from QANTAS airlines, and they have a lovely picture on the front of the brochure - it shows the magnificent detail on the DL Castle. Below is a close up detail:


    This doesn't quite look like the pics I've seen so far, but judge for yourself:

    The smaller size pic is Here and the FULL sized picture is Here

    Tell me what you think !!

    This looks like the same style used in DLP's castle. I love it in Paris, but I'm not sure it would work in Anaheim. After all, Paris' castle should look surreal, and IMHO the Anaheim castle should look more or less authentic. But hey, maybe that's just me

      [graphic designer's eye]They could have spent a LITTLE more time making the characters actually look like they were standing there by brightening them up a bit though they did a good job combinng the concept art with a real picture of the castle.[/graphic designer's eye]

          First thing I thought was "What the... Where did those big crowns come from ??"

          ...and yes, the 'Barbie Railing' appears to be missing !

            That is the concept art they showed on 05/05/04 when they annouced the plans for th 50th. So much for hoping they scrapped that idea...

                  No, its just concept art. Am I the only one who likes what it will look like with the gold crowns?

                  I think it will look great! Besides, look on the bright side, atleast we aren't getting a castle cake.

                    ^Or WDW's castle's monstrosity for the 50th.

                    I like DLRs makeover on the castle.

                        Here, here! That new mirror is downright hideous. I really like what Disneyland is getting, and hey--when the celebration is over, the crowns will come down and we'll still have a nice, brightly painted castle

                          It looks like a drunken reveler at a Mardi Gras parade...

                            I don't think it looks that bad, actually.

                            From what I've seen of the new layover being installed at WDW, I think DL's castle is much better. The WDW Castle looked really nice in the concept art I saw, but in the photos, it looks so tacky.. Hopefully, in photos and in-person the Disneyland castle wont be bad at all..

                                    Don't forget how it really isn't going to work out well with Cinderellabration.

                                        Good eye! I noticed the gold trim was not real, but I did not notice the characters were imported till I looked for the shadows I guess thats what I get for doing 3D and not Photoshop work now.
