Staying in Cinderella’s Castle Suite at WDW

Nothing in the world prepared four Double Duty Divas for the ultimate experience for any wanna-be princess.  Attending the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration a few years ago, I found myself the recipient of the key to Cinderella’s Castle. Renovated in 2006 for the Year of a Million Dreams, these days the exclusive (and elusive) suite is offered by promotion only to lucky guests such as ourselves.  With a night at the castle unable to be purchased for any amount of money, and we have it on good terms a whole lot has been offered, it truly is a once in a lifetime experience.

The Cinderella experience began as we were ordered to pack an overnight bag to meet the Suite Concierge promptly at 4 p.m. Taken by private vehicle to a back lot location behind the castle, the royal treatment began with a guided park tour as we jumped to the front of attraction lines. Once ready to see the room, the “Princess Crew,” a self-title moniker, was awed by the secret suite entrance, magic elevator and Cinderella’s glass slipper and tiara encased in the foyer. The suite itself left nothing to the imagination: magic television sets which appeared from mirrors, a whirlpool tub with twinkling stars overhead, fresh flowers in each of the three rooms and a crystal engraved glass slipped for the winner were just some of the amenities.

The Divas & Cinderella

After a quick freshening, the group made its way to dinner at Liberty Tree Tavern with the characters courtesy of the Castle Suite Crew.  After dinner, a viewing of the Wishes Fireworks Show in a private viewing area preceded a trip Hollywood Studios, again using entrances we could not have imagined existed.  One of the most magical moments came as we re-entered the room. Turn down service with chocolates on our pillows, a Mickey Mouse for the youngest member of the crew, princess bubble bath, Cinderella movie playing on both TVs, and the creme-de-la-creme…a platter of chocolate covered strawberries with a white chocolate horse drawn carriage.

Later, another private viewing area for the SpectroMagic parade awaited until finally the Divas and their little prince turned in for the night.  Unable to sleep, they donned their Cinderella robes for a midnight picture in front of the castle.  The next morning we ate breakfast at Cinderella’s Royal Table breakfast as our time in the castle came to an end.  A night to remember for sure, the Suite at Cinderella’s Castle experience was one the Divas, headed back to reality today, will treasure forever.

Update: While I haven’t had a chance to return to #DisneySMMoms since the castle stay, I’m happy for my partner in crime @BridgetteLA who is returning this year and hopeful some pixie dust will make it’s way to me again in the future.
