Walt Disney World’s most iconic landmark is getting a magical new makeover!

Jason Kirk, vice president of Magic Kingdom Park, announced on Monday that Cinderella's Castle will receive a “bold” update just in time for the animated classic’s 70th anniversary.

New concept art released by the Orlando theme park shows parts of the 189-foot castle decked out in a fresh shade of light pink, royal blue, and plenty of extra-regal gold trim.

“Cinderella first transformed into a princess 70 years ago this week when the animated classic was released—and ever since, her courage and kindness have been inspiring guests and cast members alike,” Kirk wrote in a blog post announcing the news.  “We are excited to share that her story has inspired a bold, shimmering, and royal makeover of her namesake castle at the heart of Walt Disney World Resort.

Kirk revealed that work on the makeover is expected to begin soon and continue through the summer. Fortunately, progress won’t impact the area’s attractions, like the Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire, and Happily Ever After shows.

Now that’s what we call a Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo!
