Disney preps Cinderella Castle for overnight stay by contest winners

Posted Tuesday, November 14, 2006 9:04 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Of all the prizes Disney is giving away in its big, 15-month "Year of a Million Dreams" campaign, perhaps none is more tantalizing than a night in Cinderella Castle, the signature icon of the Magic Kingdom. The plan to give away stays in the Royal Suite of the Cinderella Castle provided a challenge: The suite never existed. There is a roughed-in living space halfway up the castle, which was once envisioned as the Disney family apartment. But it had never been finished.

"Do they have television? I mean, what is there to do up there, for kids?" she asked.

That's kinda sad.

The suite, he said, will come with a "traditional" big, flat-screen, high-definition TV.

What about a "traditional" 17th century X-Box to go along with that TV?!?!? ;-)

I thought at one time Michael Jackson had a suite in the castle. Is that just an unfounded rumor?

I always thought it would be cool if the castle would have been used as a observation tower of some sort. It looks so nice just for you to just walk through the middle of it. The biggest most well known icon of Disney World and Land doesn't do much.

Acoustic Viscosity's avatar It would be nice if you could at least tour it, but I'm guessing there isn't much to see considering it's never been opened to the guests like that. Yes, it's a shame it doesn't "do" more.
