The Cinderella Castle at Walt Disney World might arguably be the most stunning theme park landmark in the world, but one would be surprised to know that it doesn’t just stand there to look pretty. The icon, modeled after 17th-century French chateaus, hides an equally beautiful secret that only a few have come to learn about.
That may have changed with a new TikTok video posted by Disney Parks. The account has offered an unusual tour of the Cinderella Castle’s hidden interiors, inviting social media users to virtually step foot into a fairytale-like luxury suite only a small party of guests have used.
Among the room’s intricate features are a hand-arranged 30,000-tile mosaic of Cinderella’s coach on the floor, makeshift “fireworks” on the ceiling’s embers, and a mirror that transforms into a television. Guests will also be able to take home Cinderella’s glass slipper.
The suite was designed to be used by Walt Disney’s family. Unfortunately, the Mickey Mouse originator died before its completion, reports Apartment Therapy.
This magical experience isn’t for all prince and princess hopefuls of the land. The suite had remained mostly unused until 2006, when Disney World hosted a ‘Year of a Million Dreams’ sweepstakes and gave out a one-night stay as a prize. It is also reported that only a few celebrities have stayed in the room, including Tom and Suri Cruise.
While there aren’t fairy godmothers to grant wishes in real life, Disney fans can at least have some of their hopes obliged with this intimate glimpse of the stunning quarters.
