Cinderella Castle Suite


Have you ever wondered what the Cinderella Castle Suite is like? Or perhaps you have dreamed of staying the night in the luxury suite inside Cinderella’s Castle. Only a very lucky chosen few will ever get to stay within the walls of the Cinderella Castle Suite as this is one thing which money cannot buy.

Win a Stay Inside Disney Cinderella Castle Suite

Even though many have tried the Cinderella Castle Suite is not able to be booked. A stay in the Suite is generally only available as a prize. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t take a look inside with some pictures of the Suite and dream what it would be like to stay there.

During the Year of a Million Dreams in 2007 a night in the Suite was given away each night to one lucky family visiting the Magic Kingdom. More recently it has occasionally been given to winners of competitions and sweepstakes. We will keep you posted if any opportunities arise but at the moment there are no current competitions. In December 2010 Kevin Jonas stayed at the suite will his new wife but there haven’t been any other celebrity stays since then that we know of.

The History of the Cinderella Castle Suite

The space inside the Castle was originally intended to be an apartment for Walt Disney and his family. Sadly Walt never saw his amazing creation as he died almost 5 years before Walt Disney World opened. The space has been used as a storage area and also a telephone exchange. But in 2006 it was decided that the area would be transformed into a wonderful suite. The idea was that it would be given away as a prize each day of the Year of A Million Dreams.

Cinderella’s Castle Suite is only 650 square feet. This is much smaller than most people may imagine. But the space is so luxuriously and ingeniously decorated it truly is fit for a Princess. The style is based upon the architecture of the French Castles of the 17th Century. Lots of lavish materials and dark woods are used. The attention to details is, as you would expect from Disney, quite simply wonderful.

The Cinderella Castle Suite entrance is by way of a secret door ( of course) on the first floor of the castle. Guests enter a small but beautifully decorated lobby. Here the time on the grandfather clock is always one minute before midnight. Just one minute to go before everything changes back to reality. But visitors here can escape from reality for a while longer as they board the elevator to the fourth floor Suite.

The Suite has a bedroom with 2 very ornate queen beds, a bathroom with a huge bath and a walk in shower, and a small sitting room.

The Cinderella Castle Suite Bedroom

The beds are of course fit for a Princess and her Prince Charming. The wood furniture is all dark maple and mahogany and very ornate. There is a giant carved initial C above each 8 foot tall headboard – for Prince Charming and Cinderella of course. The soft furnishings are lavish textures in browns and golds.

The fireplace is a beautiful feature in the room. It was made from 600 pounds of limestone and features exquisite detail of the Cinderella story on the pillars. Venetian glass sconces on the side of the fireplace have pictures of Cinderella and her Prince on them.

The fireplace has a magical feature in the shape of the picture of Cinderella above it. Of course it is part of the Disney magic – it transforms into a flat screen television.

You will even find a reference to Cinderella’s humble beginnings. Two French reproduction copper cinder pots are at the side of the fire. The fire itself looks as though it is burning brightly thanks to some clever fiber optic effects.

Cinderella Suite Sitting Room

There is a small sitting room which has a very elaborate convertible sofa (the suite sleeps up to 6 guests). This is another elaborately designed and furnished room. As you may expect in a fairytale room there is a magic mirror. This is based on a traditional French design but has a distinctly non traditional feature as it transforms into another flat screen television. The entertainment center on the wall is full of interesting features with concealed storage space, a refrigerator and a dvd player.

The stained glass windows look westwards out onto Fantasyland. You can see Princes Charming’s Regal Carousel and look down on the crowds who really wish they were here too!

Cinderella Castle Suite Bathroom

Of course there is a bathroom fit for royalty too with double sinks, a 4 foot square jacuzzi tub and a walk in shower. This Grotto inspired design has a wealth of detail and exquisite artistry. On the ceiling is ceiling is a dome of twinkling stars. The jacuzzi tub has Chromatherapy Lighting and a water fall faucet.

The three mosaics that you see in the bathroom are made of Italian Smalti glass. The 30,000 glass tiles were each individually placed in the mosaic by Disney Imagineers. The dual sinks are hand hammered copper with silver leaf. Certainly not your average bathroom!

Most of us will only dream what staying in the Cinderella Castle Suite would be like. What would you give to stay in the Cinderella Castle Suite? Leave me a Comment and let me know how much it would mean to you.

  1. My wife and I have been coming to the Magic Kingdom since October 1972. We were on our honeymoon. My wife is all about Disney. She loves Cinderella’s Castle. We started taking my daughter when she was born in 1975. Now, she has two boys. Whenever they see the castle they say, “Grandma, that’s your castle.” Grandma’s Castle. My wife and I will be down to Disney World as usual in October for our anniversary. This one will be our 40th. It would be a dream come true if she could get to stay in Cinderella’s Castle. aka Grandma’s Castle. She also has her own Cinderella Gown she made herself. She would make a beautiful princess.

  2. Walt Disney World is my favorite place in the entire world. It was my family’s vacation destination for six years in a row when I was younger. The magic never diminished as I have aged and in 2006, my husband and I went to Disney World for our honeymoon. It was his first visit and now he is as entranced as I have always been.

    While he would most likely prefer to stay at the Animal Kingdom Lodge (being a typical man), I have always wanted to stay in Cinderella’s Castle.. and that is even before I knew about the beautiful suite at the top. One of my dreams has always been to bring my children to Disney World so that they could develop the same love for it as myself, but since it seems children are not in the cards for us, it would be amazing to be able to bring my entire family immediate together one more time at Disney for a visit we would never forget.

  3. My boyfriend and I are visting Disney in Februay 2013 after saving for 2 years to do such a magical holiday. I am so excited to see “the” Cinderlla Castle when we arrive and its on the iternary for the 1st day! I came to Florida when I was 6 years old and will never forget the image of “happily ever after” it has set in my head. I sort of feel like a Cinderella, as my job role isn’t the most glamorous and have never been given to chance to be treated like a princess. Coming across this webpage has put butterflies in my tummy to know that I can enter a competition to give me a glimmer of chance that I could stay in the Cinderella Suite for one night!

    Please let my dream come true and let me tell my grandchildren the story in the future of how the glass slipper fit and own version of “Once upon a time…”


    Thank you for your time,


  4. I would love for my five year old to be able to stay here. She.deserves all the magic the world has to offer. She has been through two heart surgeries and a heart stent. She will probably have another ne,t year and will through out her life. Between being sick a lot and in and out of hospitals and Dr visits she deserves some magic. I wanted to take her on the Disney cruise but its a little out of a single moms budget. But I did save up enough to take her to Disney and she just stared at the castle and begged me to go inside the disappointment on her purple face when I told her we couldn’t. Well maybe some day.

  5. I can hardly even put into words what this experience would mean to me and my husband. We are newlyweds and have no children yet. In fact, we are planning a trip to Walt Disney World to celebrating our honeymoon. We go to Disneyland at least two times a year and have passed by the Disney Dream Suite with wishful hearts every time we have been in the park. However, now that we have read this description and caught a glimpse of the magic in these pictures, I can’t believe my eyes! The clincher was when we saw the carved C. and C. above the beds…my name is Charlotte and my husband’s name is Christopher…I just knew it was meant to be! Our relationship has been a fairy tale from the beginning and our family is Disney through and through. From our engagement in Disneyland, to our Mickey and Minnie cake toppers, to now going to W.D.W. for our honeymoon…staying in Cinderella’s castle would make all of our dreams come true!

  6. Disneyland ca. is the place i have been going since 1970. my dad and step mother use to take me there every July for my birthday. My aunt Chris Donavan use to work on the ticketed rides and always found a way to give my family handfuls of “e” tickets. As I grew up and married my kids also grew up at this park and now my grandsons are third generation “happiest place on earth” fans. I always had heard that there was a room to stay inside the park but considered it a myth. I was watching the worlds funniest videos and they said that there is a room and from the camera angles it looks like its in the french quarter. How dose a long time fan like i and three generation mickey fans have a opportunity to stay in the happiest place on earths greatest room?

  7. I have taken care of my other family members all my life, my father and sister have lived with me for the last year , my husband gave up our bedrooms ,so they would have a place to sleep ,we would love to have a actual bed , let alone a castle suite to sleep in for 1 night !!!!!

  8. Staying At the castle is what dreams are made of! I CAN’T IMAGINE HOW MUCH FUN IT WOULD BE TO STAY WITH MY GRAND DAUGHTERS. I think I would have more fun then them. What a life long memory for all! Maybe some day!?!
