D23’s Magic & Merriment has already brought us some incredible Christmas presents (Part 1 & Part 2) but we are about to open one of the neatest gifts of the weekend. We are talking about Cinderella’s Castle Suite and we are going to be given an in depth presentation about its many details just a day before we get to experience it in person for ourselves! Don’t worry we saved you a front row seat! Let’s go!
Tons of planning & research necessary for this project…
The Castle Suite idea had been floating around for years until it found the right marketing campaign to latch onto and get green-lit.
Cinderella’s Castle has stylings from several castles but is mainly based on the one pictured above which inspired the original story of Cinderella.
Many of the classic stylings are referenced within the Cinderella Castle Suite.
The Imagineers had to find unique ways to mask the modern day comforts of a hotel room within the castle theming.
Many of the details of the Cinderella Castle Breezeway make it into the design of the Cinderella Castle Suite for continuity…
The breezeway’s murals tell the story of Cinderella…
If you have never taken the time to take a look at this mural, then you should really take a moment to on your next trip, it is really something.
So where exactly do you put a suite within Cinderella’s Castle?
Well how about there…
Cinderella Castle Suite Floorplan…a ton of stuff in a very small space.
The entrance to the Cinderella Castle Suite is through a door right at the beginning of the Cinderella Castle breezeway.
Once inside a very small space awaits, but it is furnished to the rim with decorative pieces, including the clock which is permanently wound up to just before midnight 😉
Sadly, we’ll find the the elevator floor tile work is not in mint condition anymore. It needs some refurbishing.
So many details and Disney touches added to every nook of this suite.
