Getting to stay in the Cinderella Castle suite at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom typically requires being mega famous or winning a contest. But if you’ve got $12,000 to spare, you can at least have a look around.
Access to the ultra-exclusive suite is included in Disney’s new World of Dreams VIP tour. For $12,000 per day (with each additional day costing $10,000), up to six guests can be led through Disney World on a tour lasting up to 12 hours.
The perks, besides touring the castle suite, will include:
- Front-of-the-line access to all attractions
- Backstage transportation between the parks
- Animal tours and programs at Disney’s Animal Kingdom
- Three meals included during the course of the tour
- Seating at all Disney World restaurants without requiring a reservation
- Reserved seating and viewing areas at shows and nighttime spectaculars
The tour can be customized with “any and all experiences” offered in Disney parks. This may include elements of behind-the-scenes tours like unDISCOVERed Future World, offering access to VIP lounges at Epcot, or Backstage Magic, which includes a visit to the “utilidor” tunnels running around the Magic Kingdom. Those specific tours, however, don’t require such a hefty price tag; the four-hour Epcot tour costs only $69 per person, while the longer Backstage Magic costs $275 per person.
Disney World did not immediately respond to a request for comment on what other unique perks are offered at other parks as part of the World of Dreams tour.
For Magic Kingdom guests, however, a look inside the castle suite is a rare opportunity. Disney has reportedly turned down hefty sums (more than $40,000 per night, according to Disney Tourist Blog) from those looking to book the suite.
“It’s the most exclusive address here at Walt Disney World,” the suite’s concierge, Sean Marsich, told ABC News in May 2018. “It’s something that no amount of money can buy. It’s a very, very special experience.”
Instead, the suite is invitation-only and largely reserved for celebrities. Rumored past guests include Tom Cruise and Mariah Carey.
