You Could Win a Night in the Secret Suite in Cinderella's Castle
The suite was originally built as an apartment for Walt Disney.
Located high in the Cinderella Castle at Walt Disney World, this magical suite cannot be bought. But it can be won.
An online charity benefit for Give Kids the World Village — a nonprofit organization that works to make the wishes of critically-ill children come true — is giving away one night in the Cinderella Suite for one winner and their five guests.
Once the park shuts down for the night, the winner will be alone with run of the castle, four stories above the Magic Kingdom. The entire suite is decorated to look like a 17th-century French chateau. Cinderella’s royal crest appears throughout the space, including on the headboards. There are coffered ceilings, stained glass windows, and even a hot tub surrounded by fairy tale mosaics.
The suite was originally built as an apartment for Walt Disney, but he died before it opened. It had a brief stint as headquarters for Disney World phone operators before becoming the coveted, ornate Cinderella Suite in 2006.
Entry into the raffle starts at $10 and goes up to $5,000. The package includes round-trip flights to Orlando, one night in the suite, two day passes to the park and breakfast at Cinderella’s Royal Table.
Those who don’t win can always try booking a consolation prize of a meal at the Cinderella’s Royal Table and imagining what goes on upstairs.
