During Magic Kingdom’s celebration of Year of a Million Dreams, the Disney Parks decided to create a unique opportunity to stay the night inside the famous Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom. Nowadays, it’s not common to have anyone stay the night in the castle. In the past couple of years, Walt Disney World’s VIP Tours has created a package that lets you take a glimpse into the very famous, Cinderella Castle Suite. This tour is said to cost upwards of $12,000 and includes up to six guests.
While working in the Disney Parks, I had the unique opportunity to tour the exclusive Cinderella Castle Suite myself. This was one of the most incredible opportunities I enjoyed by being a Cast Member. And it was all due to pure luck. Fortunately, I was able to photograph my experience, and now I can share it with all of you as a photo tour of the Cinderella Castle Suite.
Entrance and Foyer
When walking through the sliding doors of the elevator, you instantly walk into a fairytale. Immediately as you step in, you walk across a beautiful mosaic tile floor depicting Cinderella’s famous carriage before it turns into a pumpkin.
On the right-hand side of the foyer, you will see a shelf full of magical items. You will recognize the renowned glass slipper on the top shelf and, right below it, Cinderella’s crown from her inauguration. If that weren’t enough magic, you also see some of the magical pumpkins that the Fairy Godmother used to make Cinderella’s carriage.
Making your way past the foyer on your left is a bathroom fit for true royalty. The first thing that will strike your eye is the beautiful bathtub with a gorgeous mosaic of Cinderella’s Castle. With the switch of the light you will see this portrait come to life with sparkling lights twinkling over your head.
A fun detail is that the toilets in the Castle Suite are themed to look like royal thrones. If you are a guest lucky enough to stay overnight, there will be a glass slipper for you with your name engraved waiting for you on top of the vanity counter.
The Main Bedroom
The bedroom is straight ahead from the foyer and has two beautiful beds facing a grand fireplace. Above the fireplace, there is a mirror that has a hidden television inside of it. Sometimes if you look into the fireplace, the cracks and embers look like tiny fireworks!
On the right-hand side of the bed is a desk that has a guest signature book. Here you will find the names of the lucky guests who stayed the night in the magical Cinderella Castle Suite.
Attached to the bedroom on the left is another room with a sleeper sofa for additional guests. This room has many unique pieces that make it truly feel like you’re part of a fairytale.
You’ll see books of many classic Disney films such as Peter Pan and Sleeping Beauty, to name a few. Additionally, there’s a telescope that works so you can look outside of the stained glass windows and get a view of the parks from the top of the castle.
A Dream Come True
Photographs will never be able to capture the truly magical feeling of being inside the very exclusive Cinderella Castle Suite. You could explore this little suite for hours and notice more magical details than you could even imagine. The Cinderella Castle Suite at Magic Kingdom is a guest accommodation only a Fairy Godmother could dream up for Cinderella.
