    Hi.... is there still a Cinderella fountain in magic kingdom. Thanks Maryann

    Greetings and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Maryann, we thank you for this enchanting question!

    “La Fontaine de Cendrillon” – our fountain of Cinderella and her beloved feathered friends is located beside the entrance to Castle Couture in Fantasyland, just behind Cinderella Castle.

    The statue of Cinderella was sculpted by Disney Legend Blaine Gibson in 1965, before the official opening of Magic Kingdom Park in 1971. As always, the details have significance, as described in a delightful account by our Disney Parks Blog contributor, who describes the wall mural behind Cinderella shown to display a beautiful crown, lining up perfectly with Cinderella’s head. As Mark Matheis, a Content Specialist for the Disney Institute says, “When you view the Cinderella Fountain from an average adult’s eye level, the crown is above Cinderella’s head. However, from a child’s view, the crown is resting on Cinderella’s head. Sometimes it takes the innocence of childhood to see the truth in situations.”

    Maryann, if such details are of interest to you, may I offer Disney’s Keys to the Kingdom Tour – an informative, historical, backstage walking tour of the iconic Magic Kingdom Park.

    We thank you for consulting us and wish you a most magical Disney Vacation at The Place Where Dreams Come True!
