Touring the Cinderella Castle Suite at the Magic Kingdom

The Cinderella Castle at Disney World

A few months ago, our cast member friend, Ricky, was able to do something few people ever do, and that was go on a tour of the Cinderella Castle Suite.

He works at the Magic Kingdom now and we think he’s going to make Disney his career.

Here’s a few photos from his magical castle tour:

Ring, ring….Hello, Charming here!

The C over the beds is for Cinderella…or is it for Charming?

  • Tom and Suri Cruise, on their WDW vacation in the summer of 2012
  • Kevin Jonas and wife Danielle, celebrating 1st anniversary December 2010
  • Neil Patrick Harris, hubby David, & twins, April 2013
  • Nick Cannon, wife Mariah Carey & twins (they have also stayed at Dream Suite in Sleeping Beauty’s Castle Disneyland), 2013
  • Katy Perry, July 2014 (photos below)

Note:  It’s not not ‘Cinderella’s Suite’. It is the ‘Cinderella Castle Suite’. That’s because this isn’t where Cinderella lives, but rather it’s where her guests stay when they come for a visit.  Guests enter the suite using a Castle elevator activated by a key-to-the-world card.

Guests staying in the suite have 24 hour concierge service.

Some history of the Cinderella Castle:
Disney World first announced the creation of the Cinderella Castle 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 MK park. Sadly, Walt never got to see his creation as he died in December 1966, almost five years before the Magic Kingdom opened.

Before 2006, the suite space in Cinderella Castle was generally empty, although at times it was used for storage and was once the home of the Disney telephone operators for a short while.

This is Tinkerbell’s view of Tomorrowland from the turret where she jumps off the Castle every night before the start of the fireworks show.

With the launch of The Year of A Million Dreams in 2007-2008, Disney wanted something as a very special prize for a select few lucky guests. Someone was randomly chosen at the Park each day to spend the night, with up to 5 guests, in Cinderella’s Castle Suite.

Since then, mostly various contest winners have stayed there. You can’t reserve the room – Disney has to offer the suite to you. It’s considered the most exclusive hotel suite in the world.
