Did you know this week’s Tiggerific Tuesday Disney Trivia about the Cinderella Castle tile mosaic?
Just inside the archway of Cinderella Castle at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Park is a piece of artistry fit for a princess! The wall is lined with a glittery tile mosaic that recounts the tale of how a humble girl came to reside in a majestic castle.
The five stunning 15- by 10-foot Gothic arch-shaped mosaic murals were designed by Imagineer Dorothea Redmond and were installed by a team of six artists led by mosaicist Hanns-Joachim Scharff over a period of 22 months. The murals contain over 300,000 pieces of hand-cut Italian glass in more than 500 colors. Many of the tiles are fused with sterling silver and 14 karat gold, and some tiles are as tiny as the head of a tack.
Next time you visit the Most Magical Place on Earth, stroll through Cinderella Castle and take in this spectacular sight!
