Description And Comments

The icon of Magic Kingdom (and, to some extent, of Walt Disney World and the Disney corporation), Cinderella Castle sits at the center of the park and serves as a majestic gateway to Fantasyland.

The castle, itself, is ornately decorated with spires, turrets, a moat, and beautiful mosaics that most guests overlook as they rush through.

Cinderella Castle is also home to:

  • Cinderella's Royal Table, a table service restaurant where guests can dine with royalty (reservations strongly recommended).
  • Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, where guests can get princess makeovers complete with dresses, manicures, hair designs, etc. (reservations strongly recommended).
  • Cinderella Castle Suite, a regal hotel room created for a Disney promotion and now put to unknown uses.

Also note that Cinderella Castle is used as a projection screen during fireworks shows and Magic, Memories, and You! Furthermore, it is home to the Cinderella's Holiday Wish show that lights up the castle beautifully during the holiday season.

Touring Tips

  • Open for Early Theme Park Entry.
    The Early Theme Park Entry program will start on an unknown future date in 2021.

Although the castle is huge and beautiful, the only part of it that merits a close-up viewing is the artwork in the tunnel between the hub and Fantasyland. These mosaics that depict scenes from Cinderella are missed by most guests, so stop and enjoy at your leisure. Note that parts of the area under the castle are used to stage the Castle Forecourt shows that take place throughout the day; this makes some murals inaccessible, so for best viewing visit first thing in the morning (often you can look at them while waiting for the Fantasyland rope drop) or late in the day after the final Castle Forecourt show.
