While anyone can write the 189-foot palace, inspired by the likes of Fontainebleau and Versailles, to betray or eat, Disney allows only a very lucky few to stay overnight in its declining Cinderella Suite, which sits atop the clock tower.
If you’ve perpetually wondered what it feels like to be a Disney Princess, CNBC Write out It got a sneak peak with “The Bucket List Family.” Garrett and Jessica Gee and their two unsophisticated children, 5-year-old daughter, Dorothy, and 3-year-old son, Manilla, slept in Cinderella’s shelters for the night. They were guests of Dinsey as part of their “30 remains in 30 days,” blogging series.
Here’s a look inside.
To get into the following, you open a large wooden door on the ground floor of the castle and come in a Gothic-style room where a 24-hour concierge is there to attend to any fors you may have. You’re then escorted into a small elevator that tastes the pumpkin coach Cinderella took to the ball. It opens directly into the followers.
Walking into the suite feels like you’re walking into a actual castle, say the Gees. Everywhere you look, there are intricate details.
In the bedroom stretch, the two beds have carved wood frames and are made up with rich-looking linens. In a drawer near the beds are comfy, ruby red robes for the guests to wear. Stained trifocals windows tell a visual story of Cinderella’s journey from an unloved nymphet to a princess.
“Depending on the window, you could look out and see Fantasy Land or Particular Street,” Jessica says. “It was fun waking up in the morning and seeing people arriving into the park.”
Behind a glass case is Cinderella’s glass slipper and her fillet.
A small fireplace glows in the corner. On the floors are thousands of hand-placed tiles.
Temperate the bathroom is fit for a princess.
The tub lights up in different colors. And when you dim the room, twinkling lights shine overhead, representing stars.
Two additional guests can rest in the lounge, which includes a “magic TV” that functions as both a mirror image and an entertainment system. In a box behind the couch is a telescope so you can look out and see the different Disney loonies walking through the park below.
“Our favorite part,” Jessa discriminates CNBC Make It, “was watching the firework show in front of the castle and then when it was settled, walking right into the castle up to the suite for the night.”
But don’t reach for your recognition card just yet. The suite, which offers guests a chance to dwell in the center of Magic Kingdom, is by invitation only. Reportedly, Disney has depressed down large sums from people eager to stay.
When about a invited to describe the overall experience, Jessica, a lifelong Disney fan, says it was “preposterous.”
