Cinderella Castle Suite in Pictures

Cinderella Castle Disney World


An overnight stay in the heart of the Magic Kingdom is by invitation only. But, you can still tour it when you peek at these Cinderella Castle Suite pictures. (For a fabulous place you can reserve by the night, see Top 10 Disney Resorts and Best Budget Orlando Hotels.

Right at the heart of the Magic Kingdom, inside the iconic Cinderella Castle, is a very special suite that can't be booked at any cost. It takes up an entire floor of the castle, and has a view from stained-glass windows of Fantasyland. Dreaming big? Take a tour with these Cinderella Castle Suite pictures.

If the location alone doesn't capture your imagination, wait until you see inside. The suite consists of a bedroom furnished with two beds and a fireplace, a parlor-style sitting room, and a gilded bathroom complete with a sunken tub. The suite is adorned with several tile murals which tell the Cinderella story. A "magic" mirror hangs above the bedroom fireplace.

For many Disney fans, spending the night in Cinderella Castle would be the ultimate dream come true. The suite is available for special promotions, with no word from Disney about ever renting it out. (Can you imagine how much a night in a suite in Cinderella Castle would cost?) The Royal Suites in Disney's Port Orleans Resort is an affordable, realistic alternative for many guests. Decorated by Princess Tiana with help from all her Disney princess buddies, it's got a few of the magical touches that wow guests in the real Cinderella Castle Suite.

View from Cinderella Castle

View from Cinderella's Castle Suite

Charlyn Keating Chisholm

All the windows in Cinderella's Castle suite are stained glass. This is partly because it fits with the theme (a guest suite in a castle), and partly for practical reasons. At night, the view from Cinderella Castle is breathtaking. The lights in the Magic Kingdom are turned up, and nightly maintenance is performed on the theme park as surfaces are scrubbed and repainted. In order to preserve the magic, the view from the windows is restricted to Fantasyland.

Although you can see them through the windows, the guest suite's family room also has a VIP firework seating just outside.

Cinderella Bedroom

Cinderella Bedroom

Walt Disney World

The Cinderella bedroom in the castle suite appears ready to receive royalty. The bedroom is richly decorated, designed to call to mind a royal guest suite in a real castle. The main Cinderella bedroom (shown above) has a fireplace; flanking the fireplace is a parlor and a bathroom. Stone floors and walls, along with hardwood paneling, stone columns and stained glass windows add to the fairytale allure.

The Cinderella bedroom is furnished with a mix of antiques and reproductions. Highlights include a 17th century Dutch desk, two antique "slipper" chairs (used in the 17th and 18th century to sit on while putting on shoes), and support columns decorated with carved mice.

Cinderella Fireplace

Cinderella Fireplace

The Cinderella fireplace in the bedroom of the Castle Suite doesn't really have a fire, although it gives off a warm glow. (Chances are you wouldn't need a real fire in Florida anyway.) The logs glow as if they had transformed into burning embers, and fiber optics create a fireworks effect in the back.

The fireplace is a 600-pound faux limestone structure. It was cast from a 17th century, wooden Gothic original antique from France.

A Cinderella picture with a magical air hangs regally above the fireplace. The portrait is projected onto a "magic" mirror, which also turns (through the magic of technology) into the television screen. When you're ready to retire, and would rather not watch TV or Cinderella, it can be turned into a mirror.

First Family to Stay in Cinderella's Castle Suite

First Family to Stay in Cinderella's Castle Suite

Charlyn Keating Chisholm

On January 25, 2007, the Fouch family of DeWitt, Michigan became the first family to be selected by Disney to spend the night in Cinderella's Castle. Each day, a group of guests is selected at random by a computer at Disney World. The criteria is randomized each day, so even the castmembers don't know who will be chosen until it happens.

In the case of the Fouch family, it was Row 2, Seat 8 in Simulator 4 of the Star Tours attraction at Disney-MGM Studios at 10:00 AM.
