Cinderella’s Castle in Magic Kingdom is located at the end of Main Street. When you enter the parks, you will get your first breathtaking view of the 189-foot castle where Cinderella and her prince reside.
In the mornings, the walk through the castle is open. Take this path to reach Fantasyland and check out the five mosaics on the wall that depict Cinderella’s story. If you look closely, you’ll notice one of the step sister’s face is green with envy and the other’s is red with anger.
The walk through is closed from about 10 am to 6 pm due to the stage show. However, you can still enter the area from the rear of the castle to see the mosaics.
If you want to take your little princesses and princes inside, you can dine at Cinderella’s Royal Table located on the second floor. There you will find Cinderella and her princess friends at every meal. If you are eating in Cinderella’s Royal Table, be sure to look up in the room where you meet Cinderella. You should see the Disney Family Crest and you might even spot Cinderella’s Mice in the rafters! I also hear you can ask the suite of armor for an autograph and get a funny reply.
Also located within Cinderella’s Castle is the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. This boutique salon will transform your daughter into a Disney princess. Stop in Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and ask the cashier to sprinkle your little girl’s head with Pixie Dust. You do not need an appointment to get sprinkled!
There is a penthouse located inside Cinderella’s Castle. For years it wasn’t used, but they transformed into into a two-bedroom “Cinderella’s Guest Suite.” It was used nightly during the Year Of A Million Dreams but since then it is only used for special occasions. You can not book Cinderella’s Guest Suite.
There is a garden located between the castle and Tomorrowland. It is called the All American Rose Garden. I recommend that you take a walk around dusk through the garden. You might even find ducklings waddling around!
Just behind Cinderella’s Castle is Cinderella’s fountain (on the Fantasyland side). If you bow down in front of the fountain you will see a crown magically appear on Cinderella’s head!
Each night, Once Upon A Time light show uses the castle as it’s backdrop. It is an amazing light show so make sure you check your Times Guide for showtimes.
The castle is the center stage for the nightly performance of Happily Ever After. If the weather is permitting, Tinker Bell will fly from the top of the castle to the roof of the Tomorrowland Terrace restaurant. Pick a viewing spot where you can clearly see the wire that runs from the Castle to the restaurant.
Starting about a half hour after the park closes (remember that if the park closes at 9pm, you have almost a full hour to leave the park), the Kiss Goodnight will begin. Cinderella’s Castle will appear to change colors as Roy O. Disney’s dedication speech for the Magic Kingdom plays thanking you for coming.
