The new stylized castle tumbler at Walt Disney World Resort
Take one of Disney Parks’ most enduring icons with you on the go in the form of the all-new Castle Trophy. We found this item in the Creations store at World Celebration in EPCOT.
New Cinderella Castle Tumbler – $24.99
The new mug features two layers of plastic – a large clear outer layer that actually holds it, and a purple pink inner layer that holds your drink and features the illustration.
Small decorative stars and circles populate the space between the layers of plastic. They are multi-colored and cover the inner part of the outer layer, with some bracts accumulated at the bottom.
The inner layer features a stylish depiction of a castle that matches the vibrant color theme of the rest of the foam. The illustration features basic shapes and sharp lines.
Although this mug is available at Walt Disney World Resort, the illustration of the castle more closely resembles Sleeping Beauty’s Castle in Disneyland Park than Cinderella’s Castle in the Magic Kingdom. The windows and curvy designs in the foreground mimic the design of the Disneyland icon, but the image takes some liberties with the rest of the design, especially at the top of the castle and its very narrow width. It’s not exactly identical to any of the Disney Parks icons, but it does seem to be heavily influenced by Sleeping Beauty’s Castle.
The other side of the inner cup does not contain any illustrations or designs.
The reusable hard plastic straw enters the central cup through a hole in the middle of the rose gold reflective cup lid.
Castles in Disney Parks
Castles are synonymous with Disney parks and The Walt Disney Company in general, getting their start thanks to the company’s early animated film adaptations of classic fairy tales. Castles are often depicted in films, with the company building an actual castle to serve as the visual centerpiece of Disneyland Park when it opened in 1955 (although named “Sleeping Beauty Castle”, the structure opened four years before Disney’s “Sleeping Beauty”). released).
Castles were built at every subsequent “Magic Kingdom”-style park the company built, starting with the Magic Kingdom itself in 1971. That icon, dubbed Cinderella Castle after the 1950 animated film, was larger and more extravagant than its Disney counterpart Land, and was replicated at Tokyo Disneyland in 1983.
Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant opened next to Disneyland Paris in 1992. Inspired by Sleeping Beauty Castle, Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant features an attraction containing an animatronic dragon. Enchanted Storybrook Castle is an icon of Shanghai Disneyland and opened in 2016, while the newest Disney castle is the Castle of Magical Dreams at Hong Kong Disneyland.
The castle opened in 2020 and replaced Disneyland’s version of Sleeping Beauty Castle which had served as the icon of Hong Kong Disneyland since it opened in 2005. Both the Enchanted Storybook Castle and the Castle of Magical Dreams contain references to several Disney Princesses.
