Summer Castle Projections

The high-resolution projections on Cinderella Castle that precede (and sometimes follow) the Wishes fireworks have received a new seasonal addition for summer. It's the "sand castle" version of this famous icon!

There have been seasonal changes before. In Christmas 2011 (the show's first year), a new segment was inserted, and for Valentine's Day 2012, a love-theme section was added. The romance addition has stayed there, actually, and is still there during the summer, even side by side with the additions.

The summer additions start with a brief introduction by Phineas and Ferb (who famously try to find ways to fill 104 days of summer vacation), and we are treated to the sand castle, Crush from Finding Nemo, Goofy surfing, Timon and Pumbaa from the Lion King, and Ariel from Little Mermaid.
