Cinderella Castle Suite.
- The suite has chandeliers, stained glass windows, and a portrait that doubles as a flat-screen TV.
Cinderella Castle is a common backdrop in Disney World visitors' photos, but few have access to the most opulent part of the building: Cinderella Castle Suite.
But a new video posted on the Disney parks TikTok account shows fans never-before-seen views of its opulent hotel suite, which only allows invited guests and contest winners to stay. The video has had 3.4 million views at the time of writing.
Disney's TikTok video takes fans inside Cinderella Castle Suite
As shown in Disney's video, outside the front door of the hotel suite is a mosaic depicting Cinderella's royal carriage, made with 30,000 hand-laid tiles - some of which are made from real gold, as Insider's Rachel Askinasi previously reported.
Once inside the royal bedchamber, you'll see two beds with lavish bedding and custom headboards with the letter "C" embossed in gold. The "C" is a nod to Prince Charming and not Cinderella because, technically, it was his home first, as the narrator of Disney's TikTok explains.
There's also a portrait of Cinderella above the fireplace that can transform into a flat-screen TV. And there's another magic mirror hiding a TV in the den, along with stained glass windows that tell the story of Cinderella.
In the royal bath chamber, starry lights twinkle above a hot tub, surrounded by mosaics on three sides; monogrammed towels hang from the towel racks; and there are two copper wash basins that the narrator says "remind Cinderella of her humble days." The golden, crown-shaped chandeliers hanging in the bathroom, on the other hand, are anything but humble.
Those who stay at the suite get to take a souvenir home. Replying to a fan in the comments of its TikTok video, Disney confirmed that guests are given their own glass slipper.
There's more to Cinderella Castle than the princess' hotel suite
While Cinderella's suite is off limits to most, people can visit Cinderella's Royal Table, an upscale restaurant inside the castle.
Unlike a number of the park's popular restaurants, Cinderella's Royal Table is currently open, though character dining isn't available at this time, according to Disney World's website. Pre-pandemic, Cinderella and other Disney princesses would stop at diners' tables for photos and autographs, but she's still known to pop in from time to time.
The dining room is decorated with colorful flags and coats of arms, glowing candelabras, stained glass windows, and intricate stone archways. Prices start from $62 for adults and $37 for kids aged 9 and under, with items such as braised lamb and fresh seafood on the menu.
There's also a store inside the castle, Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. Though it usually supplies a variety of royal-themed costumes and accessories for children, the shop is currently closed to comply with health and safety guidelines, according to Disney World's website.
Before the pandemic, the boutique's team of Fairy Godmothers-in-Training would transform customers into their favorite Disney princes, princesses, and knights. The store is expected to reopen at a later date.
Cinderella's Castle recently underwent a makeover
In 2020, Cinderella Castle had a makeover to celebrate the film's 70th anniversary. After the park was closed for months due to the pandemic, photos of the castle surfaced online last July that showed the castle had been repainted to have blue spires and a light-pink exterior.
As Insider's Amanda Krause reported in July 2020, many Disney fans liked the attraction's new look though some weren't so keen on its bold colors, and argued that the castle looked too similar to Disneyland's castle.
As Krause wrote at the time, "Magic Kingdom Vice President Jason Kirk said on the Disney Parks Blog that painters were still applying 'finishing touches' to the castle," though the castle appears to be unchanged at this time.
