When the Disney Parks Blog announced that they were going to be doing tours of Be Our Guest restaurant and Cinderella Castle suite, I just knew I had to get my name into the hat! And thankfully I was selected and I enjoyed every single second of being apart of this Limited Time Magic!
Magic Kingdom will always feel like my “home” park – it’s where I started when I became a cast member. And as many times as I’ve seen Cinderella Castle, I never imagined I’d be able to go into the castle suite.
My part of the group started in Be Our Guest and one of the imagineers that designed the restaurant gave us a tour of all the rooms.
We learned that the little cherubs on the ceiling *may* have a slight resemblance to the imagineers that worked on the restaurant 🙂
I had the grey stuff for breakfast. Breakfast of champions, right?
After that treat, it was time to go see the Cinderella castle suite! I have walked by this door more times than I even know and yet I was finally seeing it open!
We rode the elevator up to the suite level and before the door to the suite opened, I was already amazed.
And then it was time…
The details are beyond amazing!
The windows in the living room area tell Cinderella’s story.
Her home, the invitation the the ball, the clock striking midnight.
The glass slipper, Gus and Jaq finding the key, and the happy ever after.
These little mirror on either side of the fire place have a prince and princess on them. The best part is they were not made for the suite. The imagineers found them and knew they were perfect!
When they picked this chair out, it was purchased for its size – for kids. However, they were told that this little chair is a “slipper chair”, which people would use to put their slippers/house shoes on. How perfect is that?
I’m still in shock that I have been in the suite!
