Welcome to our first post in the Fastpass to History, hosted by Frontierland Station.
To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Walt Disney World in 1996, the castle was transformed into a giant 18 story birthday cake. This was by far not my favorite idea from the Imagineers. Fortunately the cake was removed in early 1998.
What made up the cake??
- 1000 feet of pink and blue inflatable icing
- 400 Gallons of pink paint
- 26 Candles ranging in height of 20 to 40 feet
- 12 five foot gumdrops
- 16 five foot candy bears
- 4 six foot Life Savers
- 30 three foot lollipops
- 50 two foot gumballs
