    How would you go about changing the color of the castle to pink or blue? And what is the cost for that?

    Hi Jessica!

    What a cute question! Perhaps I should be offering you congratulations on an upcoming family addition? I admit, this sounds like a super fun idea for a gender reveal celebration. My kids are a bit older and we missed out on the phenomenon, but I do enjoy watching other families’ gender reveal videos.

    The evening lights projected on Cinderella Castle are a carefully and artistically choreographed part of the art and storytelling of Magic Kingdom. The changing colors over the evening set the mood, and are meant to enhance the experience of all Guests in the park that evening. I’m sure you can imagine that having the colors randomly flip back and forth throughout the evening would detract from the beauty of the castle, and decrease the enjoyment for other Guests. During regular park hours, it is not typical to have the lights on the castle changed for your specific occasion.

    Disney Meetings and Events
    does specialize in planning corporate events, meetings, and social occasions such as private parties and celebrations. They do offer gender reveal events as well! If you were interested in a private special event, you could contact them to inquire about options, pricing, and availability. I would be prepared that this type of event would be very exclusive and come with a correspondingly exclusive price. Depending on your circumstances this may or may not be what you are looking for.

    If you were hoping for a smaller, more personal gender reveal, many Guests create their own magical moments. Cast Members are usually willing and excited to help! For example, you could have the baby’s gender in a sealed envelope and ask a Cast Member for assistance. Think of things like purchasing an Ear Hat with either Baby Girl or Baby Boy embroidered on it. You can pay in advance and ask the Cast Member to place the hat in a sealed bag for pick-up later in the day. You could also do this at The Emporium and purchase either a Mickey or Minnie plush. Then visit a PhotoPass Photographer on Main Street, U.S.A., and let them know the plan. Open your bag and pull out the hat or plush for the big reveal while the PhotoPass Photographer captures your special moment. Or for even more magic, consider booking a Capture your Moment photo session to get a private PhotoPass Photographer for 20 minutes at Magic Kingdom! We booked one of these sessions to commemorate my son's high school graduation and I was thrilled with the results. I highly recommend this Enchanting Extra!

    I hope one of these ideas will work for you, Jessica. Have a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
