Sharing is caring!

How do you make a reservation at Disney’s Cinderella Castle Suite in the Magic Kingdom? How can you get to stay inside Disney’s Cinderella Castle Suite?

The Cinderella Castle Suite is the only place that you can stay overnight inside Disney’s Magic Kingdom.

However, only a very limited amount of people will ever get to stay there.

Find out how to get to be one of the lucky few who stay inside the Disney Cinderella Castle Suite and also the only other way to see inside.

Disney Cinderella Castle Suite


Many of us dream of staying in Disney’s Cinderella Castle, but few will ever get the opportunity.

It takes rather more than just a little bit of Disney Pixie Dust to get the chance to spend a night in the Magic Kingdom.


A Disney Cinderella Castle Suite Reservation is, unfortunately, something that not even money can buy and is open only to a very fortunate few.

Disney Cinderella Castle Suite Inside

Disney World first announced the creation of the Cinderella Suite in 2006.

The space which is now the Cinderella Castle Suite was originally intended to be a place that Walt Disney and his family would stay in the park.

Sadly, Walt Disney never got to see his creation as he died in December 1966, almost five years before the Magic Kingdom opened.

Before 2006 the space in Cinderella Castle was empty for most of its history since it was built in 1971.

However, at times it was used for storage. It was also the home of the Disney telephone operators for a while.

With the launch of The Year of A Million Dreams in 2007, Disney wanted something as a very special prize for a select few lucky guests.

Disney created the ultimate place to stay in Walt Disney World – the Cinderella Castle Suite.

One lucky person and up to 5 guests were chosen to spend the night in the Cinderella Suite.

However, The Year of a Million Dreams finished in 2008. That’s now over a decade ago.

Since then, Disney has occasionally chosen families to stay in the Cinderella Suite. It is also sometimes offered as a prize in a sweepstake.

This is rare though. We always publish those competitions here so keep on the lookout for the latest one.

Therefore, unfortunately, making a reservation for Disney’s Cinderella Castle is impossible. It is only offered to prize winners and very occasionally Disney VIPs.

If you just want to take a peek inside you can also take a Cinderella Castle Tour

The Cinderella Castle Tour offers you access to the Suite, but you cannot stay overnight.

Money can’t buy a night in the Cinderella Castle Suite. However, money can buy some magical places to stay at Walt Disney World.

Look Inside Cinderella’s Castle Suite


Very few people have ever seen behind the door of the Cinderella Castle Suite. However, here we have gathered some photos for you.

What exactly is inside Cinderella’s Castle Suite? It has the kind of amazing detailing that you would expect from Disney Imagineers.

The Cinderella Suite makes you feel not just that you are inside the Castle but that you are immersed in the whole experience.

The inspiration for the design of the Cinderella Suite was the the17th-century French chateau upon which the Castle was modeled.

The Cinderella Suite has ornate furnishings in dark woods with opulent fabrics. Certainly, fit for a Disney Princess.

The Cinderella Castle Suite is on the fourth floor and is accessed by a special elevator.

Inside, the Cinderella Suite is perhaps smaller than most people imagine at just 650 square feet.

You would assume that Cinderella could need more space!

Cinderella Castle Suite Bedroom

The bedroom has 2 beautiful Queen-sized beds facing an ornate fireplace. Above the bedroom fireplace is a 17th-century style portrait of Cinderella.

However, all is not what it seems as the portrait magically transforms into a flat-screen television.

A Princess shouldn’t have to lift a finger so there is a remote control for the lights and the fireplace.

Cinderella’s Glass Slipper finds pride of place in the Suite.

Disney Cinderella Castle Suite Bathroom

The Cinderella Suite bathroom has a huge garden tub with ornate stained glass windows and a twinkling star ceiling.

This is one of the most spectacular features of the Cinderella Suite.

The master bathroom has double sinks – Cinderella and her Prince can get ready together!

Guests may be surprised that it isn’t easy to get a view of the Magic Kingdom from the Suite. The windows are small and made of stained glass.

There is a balcony outside the Disney Cinderella Suite but it is not accessible for guests.

How Much Does the Cinderella Castle Suite Cost?

So how do you make a reservation for Cinderella’s Castle Suite? How much does a night in the Cinderella Suite cost?

Unfortunately, some things are not for sale. This really is something that money cannot buy.

Disney occasionally gives away a night’s stay as a prize.

The last guest known to have stayed at the Cinderella Suite was Kevin Jonas and his wife Danielle as they celebrated their first wedding anniversary on December 19th, 2010.

Tom Cruise also stayed in the Cinderella Suite with Suri. Mariah Carey has also had the privilege of staying there.

So obviously being an international superstar, preferably one who has made Disney many millions of dollars, must help in getting a reservation!

Disney Magic Kingdom Hotels

You may have little chance of staying inside the Cinderella Castle, but you can most certainly stay very close to it. You can even have a room at Disney World which has a fabulous view of Cinderella Castle.

You can pick any one of the amazing Disney World Monorail Hotels.

The Disney World Grand Floridian Resort Hotel, The Polynesian, and Disney’s Contemporary Resort Hotel all have rooms with a view of Cinderella Castle and the Magic Kingdom.

You are just a short walk or monorail ride away from the Magic Kingdom.

Disney is my favorite place in the entire world. I would to love stay in the Cinderella suite, but know it’s only available for special situations. I did bring my daughter and 6 grandchildren, ages 23 to 13 for our dream vacation to Disney World. It was such a special time for all of us. We will never forget it. I have been so fortunate to have come to Disney 5 times. To stay in the Disney Castle would be one of the most exciting times in my life. You say what would I give to do that? I’m retired and I would love to work at Disney so I would work at Disney to pay a for the chance to stay in the Cinderella Suite.

I have always been a Disney girl. I see every Disney movie and know most of them by heart along with their songs. My first favorite was Alice in Wonderland and then it was The Little Mermaid. My Dad had to listen to the movie and my wonderful singing over and over again. I met my now husband when I was 22. Our first real date was at Disneyland. My parents could never afford to take my siblings and I. I was so excited and filled with so many emotions to finally live my dream of going to Disneyland. I was wearing my Alice in wonderland T-shirt and I was so excited because the first character I saw when I was entering the park was Alice. I had played out scenarios in my head how my first experience was going to be. I said excitedly, “Hi Alice!” She just ignored me and walked past me and said, I’m looking for the white rabbit and went into some door. I was so let down because I was the biggest Disney fan my whole life and then I was just ignored. I just want Disney workers to know that it’s not just special for little kids but also adults who are kids at heart. And there are probably many adults like me that didn’t get to Disneyland until later in life and we deserve a magical experience as well. It would be a bucket list accomplishment to get to fulfill my dream of staying in Cinderella’s Castle. It would be full circle for my husband and I because we did have a really fun first date there. My friend that went with us bought us the top hat and veil mouse ears and people thought we were engaged and let us cut in line on the rides. I would love to spend my anniversary September 6 in the Cinderella Castle. Maybe one day I will win a sweepstakes contest. After all a dream is a wish your heart makes and dreams really do come true.

My name is Linda Logan, I am a liver transplant survivor; going on 16 years, and not expected to have lived this long. But I'm amazingly healthy. I prayed to just let me see my sons married with children who love Disney as much as me and my granddaughters to. Then to catch the magic for a lifetime for them, with memories of me and Disney Magical heartbeat with their Oma; lasting a lifetime. Were leaving Disney today, as I wished upon my star at the Kings table, it was to bring my two little princess and one prince back to an overnight in the castle. My Disney wish would be granted.To sprinkle fairy dust as a family everywhere, with memories of Oma (grandma) to last their lifetime.

I had my first trip to Disney at age 57 this year 2022 and all I could think about was staying at the castle. I stood there just looking at that beautiful site! It would mean everything to me to be able to share that experience with my granddaughter and my mother! My dad was killed in a tragic car accident and he never got to take us to Disney and my mom never made it so maybe my four sister and I could surprise my mom together with the only great grand daughter a trip there and stay at Cinderella’s Castle! It has been tough on my mom since my dads passing but Disney is a happy place and I know I can bring smiles I finally witnessed that
