Disney releases photo from inside castle suite
Walt Disney released this photo today, the first from inside the suite being constructed inside Cinderella's Castle. The photo was taken last month when "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" designer Paige Hemmis (left) toured the suite with Disney Imagineer Cathy Carver. Hemmis was at Disney to tape a segment for Disney's Christmas parade special scheduled to be televised on Monday.
The photo itself is not very revealing. There's barely an portion of the suite visible at all, likely and attempt to save the good stuff for the big unveil next month. The Magic Kingdom suite will be open in late January and a night's stay will be randomly awarded to Disney guests as part of the company's "Year of a Million Dreams" promotion.
Here are some other details of the suite reported by Scott Powers last month:
Before dinner, the winning family will be escorted to the suite, regaled with the Cinderella story, and shown around the rooms. Disney will arrange transportation for them and their luggage from wherever they were.
They'll be taken to Cinderella's Royal Table Restaurant for dinner, where the actress in Cinderella character will meet with them.
After dinner, they'll go back upstairs to freshen up, then be escorted to the "Wishes" show or other evening Disney entertainment.
In the morning, Cinderella will give them a wake-up call and check on them.
The 650-square-foot suite has a bedchamber, a bathroom and a parlor. The parlor has two sets of three windows: one overlooks Fantasyland; the other, Liberty Square.
