How to Win a Night's Stay in the Cinderella Castle at Walt Disney World
There’s one mythic experience that devoted Disney fans drool over. It’s hidden in plain sight — but seemingly impossible to access.
When visitors look at the Cinderella Castle at Walt Disney World, they may dream of staying there — but for most, this is impossible. However, a lucky few — very few — will be able to spend a few nights at the much-coveted Cinderella Castle Suite.
It’s not even a question of money, as the suite is only available to book by invitation. But that invitation could be extended your way with a bit of luck: A charity contest to benefit the Orlando Magic Youth Foundation (OMYF) will give away a night in the Cinderella Suite.
The suite is designed to resemble a 17th-century French chateau. There are stained glass windows, room to sleep six and even an en-suite hot tub.
The winner will be able to take three guests for one magical night in the suite. The trip will include two-day Disney Park Hopper passes, a VIP tour of the park and a dinner at Narcoossee’s, the waterfront restaurant on Seven Seas Lagoon. Round-trip flights and one additional night at a four-star hotel are included in the prize.
Donations to the foundation start at $10, which comes with 100 entries in the contest. The more money you give, the more entries you get. To enter without donating, scroll to the bottom of the contest page, click “Read more,” scroll down again, and select “Alternative Method of Entry.” You’ll only get one entry as opposed to the 100 that people who donate $10 will get.
The contest is open until May 16 and a winner will be announced on May 30. The winner must book their trip by January 2022.
