Cinderella Castle is the most iconic part of all of Disney World. Housed in Magic Kingdom, this glorious castle sits at the end of Main Street, U.S.A., enticing all the Guests to stare at her beauty. The castle is much more than just a focal point, though. In Cinderella Castle, Guests can see the artwork and restaurant that make the space even more magical.
Although not available to the Guests eye, there are some hidden secrets in and around the castle, making it that much more exclusive. From the handcraft mosaics to the fairytale dining experience, Cinderella Castle never disappoints. Let’s take a look inside and see what else you may not know about Cinderella Castle!
Cinderella’s Royal Table is fit for any princess. Offering breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Guests can dine while experiencing the storybook setting. The best part of the entire experience may just be the opportunity to meet some of your favorite Disney princesses while you enjoy your regal meal. While reservations are highly recommended for all three meals, if you do not have one, Guests can still walk through the castle to see the handcrafted mosaics of Cinderella.
The Cinderella suite may be the most magical place in all of Disney World. Although not available to the public to see or stay in, there have been releases of photos and walk-throughs, all thanks to Disney Parks.
The suite’s beauty is remarkable, making every Guest eager to win a night somehow to stay there. Those lucky enough to stay in the suite get their own fairy godmother who will make just about anything come true during their stay. Another perk written by Inside The Magic is, “Guests are also given unlimited FastPass+ access all day long and can walk around Magic Kingdom and explore even after every other Guest has cleared the Park. Of course, this in-park experience would be supervised, but can you imagine having an entire Magic Kingdom to yourself?”
At Cinderella Castle, there is a “secret” nightly show many Guests aren’t aware of. As reported by Travel + Leisure, “After the Park officially closes, Cinderella Castle is illuminated in twinkling lights as “Wish Upon A Star” plays and words from Roy O. Disney’s dedication speech from the Magic Kingdom’s grand opening are recited.” It’s the castle’s way of saying goodnight as all Guests exit the Park.
Additionally, there are flags surrounding Cinderella Castle that aren’t just there for show. A fun (maybe secret) fact is that these flags are actually for real people who took part in creating Cinderella Castle. Some of these essential people were John Hench, Marty Skylar, and of course, Walt and Roy Disney.
From Gus Gus hiding in plain sight on the wallpaper to the detailed Italian glass, Cinderella Castle is an invitation to explore its beauty. What’s your favorite part of Cinderella Castle?
