Thank you!!! Believe it or not, it's just a Sony Cyber shot 8.1, no flash, set at 5 mega pixels. I have discovered that it takes better firework shots with out the fireworks setting. I am pretty sure it was set on auto that night.

Was the actual castle dressed up like candy?

I've seen these pics before, but I didn't think it would be the actual castle decorated as candy. When exactly was this?

Thanks for sharing...

It was in 1996 for the 25th Anniversay. That was supposed to be a birthday cake.

That was my very first visit to WDW...I remember wishing I could see the real castle.

The castle was decorated like a giant pink birthday cake for Disney World's 25 birthday. I fondly refer to it as the caksel year. This pic was taken in May of 1997.

Sorry my pic is so huge I don't know what happened.

We did see people coming and going, but no one had their heads off
I thought it was something that was just randomly generated

We went in 1996 and 1997 and it was like that each time. I thought it was nice, but I was really glad it was back to normal when we went in '98.
